Today, while we were wandering in the skies of Pertek, we noticed the jade horses. Actually, we call the horses fond of their freedom. Now their number is about 10, but they increase even more in the spring. We took a drone from the air, photographed it and I was very happy. “They came to the low places to eat grass from the high sections after the rainfall.
