It was the last day of our Easter stay at Talbingo. the family had gone home and I wanted to travel up Talbingo Mountain to see if we could find any wild brumbies. I don’t know why they are known as wild brumbies, because they allowed us to get quite close and were not shy, they would look at us, wondering what we were up to and then just continued grazing or just enjoyed the beautiful warm autumn weather.
We were not disappointed as we found two herds easily. The setting was beautiful, long dry summer grass that had turned white, creating a beautiful background to photograph these magnificent animals. We stopped on the edge of the Snowy Mountains Highway and walked maybe a kilometer towards the herd and just enjoyed our time with them
The second herd we found was very close to the Long Plain Hut campground. There were two foals in the group and they allowed us to photograph them from quite close. They had plenty of grass to eat and there was a small stream running beside the campground for them to drink from.
