Ailsa Craig, from Arran. Was used to seeing it from the mainland, so nice to get a different view. ( not my pic).

My mum was from Girvan. Most of my early childhood was spent down there.

Although born in Glasgow, we moved to Ayr when I was five. Friend of mine had a boat in Girvan.

This prancing pony is a 200 metre long raised-earth artwork by Mick Petts that was completed over a period of 3 years. The earthwork is a homage to the pit pony, the last of which was retired in 1999. These animals were used to haul containers of coal in underground coal mines, and the locals later dubbed Mick Petts work ‘Sultan’ after a particularly famous local pit pony.

Hengoed, Caerphilly Borough. Not much else there i could recommend.

Quite an undertaking but to be honest when I first looked at it I thought, Why has someone done a dead horse lying on it’s side?
Don’t see the prancing bit at all.
Maybe it is supposed to signify the death of coal mining in the valleys?
