Hold your horses
by Colin Murphy  13 Dec 2021
Did this as part of a double-bag, taking in this summit and Carrigroe. On the approach from the col with Blackstairs Mountain I encountered about 6 horses happily chewing away in the heather, including a white one that looked like Gandalf's horse and this chap, who regarded me warily for several minutes.
