放馬過嚟

7882 喺皇宮個Burggarten公園逢二至日下晝56都有人放馬.
因為西班牙騎術學校平時表演嗰啲放咗暑假. 咁呢班小朋友就同亞媽鄉下仔出城做暑期工了.
BB馬係啡色,大咗變白色.
我第一日已經走去八. 我覺得呢個安排一舉兩得. 西班牙騎術學校可以宣傳吓. 公園又唔使人剪草.

職員有問必答.

年輕職員有重大任務....掃屎..
好多小朋友去睇架.
佢哋係時候返宿舍


BB馬係唔使人拖架. 只要拖住馬媽媽, BB馬就跟住亞媽行.

Horses from the famous Spanish Riding School are being used to help keep the grass down in city parks in Vienna.

Despite its name the Spanish Riding School is 100 percent Austrian, a leftover from the Austro-Hungarian Empire which once included Spain.

And the famous white Lipizzaner stallions that are used in the school were originally from the Spanish Iberian Peninsula.

A cross between Spanish, Arabian and Berber horses, the daily performances by the horses have won fans all over the world including Queen Elizabeth.

And now as well as seeing the stallions perform dressage shows at the school, tourists will also have the chance to see mares and foals being let out to graze and roam over the grass of city parks.

Spanish Riding School boss Elisabeth Guertler said that the idea had been really well received across the board and added: "There will not be much need for mowing the grass."

The horses will be let out for an hour every day except Sundays and Mondays until 2 August, and are distinctive because while the adults are snowy white the foals are born dark and only later develop their grey-white coats.

A spokesman for the city council park authority said that they were not concerned about damage to the turf because although it would be well-nibbled, it would not be destroyed as the horses have not yet been shod. The mothers and foals will be chaperoned whilst they are in the park, and visitors are warned that they are not allowed to stroke them, however tempting that may be.

Previously the horses were expected to stay in the confines of the Spanish Riding School but Guertler said her heart went out to them after she noticed them vainly trying to nibble at a few chestnut tree leaves, and realised they were deprived of greenery.

From 2 August the foals will spend the rest of the year roaming the pastures of the Lipizzaner Stud farm in Piber, in the Austrian state of Styria.

The Spanish Riding School is the oldest riding academy in the world, and the only one where classical dressage has been maintained for over 440 years.

  7. 原來BB馬長大會變另一種色,呢個唔講唔知添,咁我又search吓馬仔變色嘅資料,原來某啲種類嘅馬連轉季時都會變色.
    Lipizzan 轉色嘅資料:

    Lipizzan轉完色嘅通常係6 - 10歲喇, 而平均壽命係30 - 35年
