Out of the Jurisdiction: Encountered on Our Walks


At the start of the day, grooms lead horses to the fields.  At the end, to the stables.  Behind them, a worker in a bucket truck is doing repairs on the very unreliable electric distribution system.


Sometimes trail riders from a nearby stable pass us.


Lola and Sequoia are usually good when riders pass.

Bet they kick up a lot of dust. I like these, Jack.

Looks extremely dry there. The dust is making me...kerchoo!

Being surrounded by animals is a very good way to spend one's day!

Your out-of-the-jurisdiction shots are always an interesting surprise!

Such an amazingly different world it is, Jack!! And it does look as dry as the west Texas I grew up in!! Hope you're having a great visit with your family and new granddaughter!!

I am very much enjoying my trip to Africa through your lens Jack.. In all the years I lived in Zambia I never went to South Africa but it's much the same in many ways.. I remember the dogs :)

Beautiful shots, Jack. The dogs behaving around the horses is a good touch.

I love these shots of a part of the world I haven't visited. I'd love to go some day.

Such a different world there. Love all the shots. PS. Congratulation on new (beautiful) family member you shared with us recently.

I wish you'd start a Jo'burg and outskirts DP...

That bucket truck in the background of the first shot seems out of place.

The terrain reminds me of parts of California, though with less pavement and more horses.

Great shot with the grooms each leading five horses. As a kid I could only manage to lead four horses unless I was riding a fifth horse. They must be talented.

I'd love to visit South Africa but it's a long way from home. Glad you went and brought us some images.
