The Blessing of the Animals - Careful Now!

Copyright 2009 Menton Daily Photo. All rights reserved.

A child sits astride one of the horses from the stables on Mont Gros. After the 'blessing' the riders allowed many small children to experience, for the first time, what it's like to sit on a horse.

This horse was drinking from the horse trough at the time whilst Maman gingerly lets go of her daugher's arm.

You can read about Boutchette, the 6 month old Bassett Hound puppy who loves horse droppings...! on Riviera Dogs today.


  1. This is truly wonderfuly, Jilly. Really exquisite portrait of mother and child.

  2. Had to laugh when I saw this photo as it contrasted with the one I posted with Olivia on her steed. The child is beautiful!

  3. What a beautiful portrait. I bet this mother would love a copy of this photo!

  4. It is a classic, Jilly. I agree that the mother would love a copy...so will that child when she's older. Just love this...


  5. She must feels as if she was a Queen! The hand (of her mother?)reached out to her is beutiful.
