Island ingredients: donkeys, horses, goats and seagulls
Vlieland has beautiful nature, but there are also plenty of animals. I love animals, so I thought I’d do a special post about the animals I saw on the island!
On my first hike on the island, I first saw two very cute donkeys who were grazing on a field near the lighthouse. I sat on a bench to eat my banana and then another hiker told me to look behind me: both donkeys were very interested in my food and I’m sure hoped I would give them some (which I didn’t). After that I saw to goats enjoying a nibble of grass, some lazy time and some scratch time. The little goat really liked all the attention the little kids gave him. Horses…I love horses and especially Icelandic horses like this beautiful brown one! I used to ride Icelandic horses myself and they are an amazing breed. In another paddock were two Friezen (Frysian horses). I’ve never ridden one myself, but I think they are so incredibly majestic and beautiful. And lastly, you can’t be near sea and not see seagulls. 🙂
