Liz and I visited the New Forest recently. My family and I used to go there when we were kids and it was exactly as I remembered it.
It is kind a unique place (at least in the UK). The landscape is shaped by the fact that commoners are allowed to let Horses, Donkeys and Cattle graze there and roam freely. Horses have the right of way on the roads so its not unusual for them to be standing in the middle of the road.
Here are the same pictures as a slideshow… they look better big and also I will add more when I finally get round to more scanning.
