Camera Critters - Horses

horses

22 Jan 09

Is it just me or are these horses really posing? Got to take their photos yesterday, those two are so immaculately clean....despite the smell!

These lovely creatures can be found beside the Stephansplatz Church. I am not entirely sure but a Fiaker costs about 80 euros an hour (same rate as a gondola in Venice!) nowadays. It is definitely a beautiful experience seeing the city aboard this classic carriage. They can also be rented for weddings and other ocassions.

  14. I think it looks like the top two are sharing a secret...almost like the one is telling the other something about you.

  17. Here in Aussie you can also see lot's of them and the smell..oh gosh so horrible. Sometimes they really looked tired while their navigator waiting for riders to tour around the City of Melbourne. Nice captures.Joyoz Photography

  18. Interesting post and fine pictures, Gizelle.
    I think 80 euros an hour for a Fiaker are a lot! And I see a great sadness in those poor horses.
    Have a nice Sunday!
