Since 1907, always on the last Saturday in May, thousands of spectators have been coming together to see the capturing of Germany’s last wild horse breed.
Some of the yearling stallions will be separated from the herd by specially trained catchers on this day and auctioned off after the event.
I haven't really gotten around to reviewing my pictures today, just quickly developed a few pictures.
The Dülmen Pony is one of the oldest horse types and was first mentioned in 1316, one of the last real wild horses in whole Europe!

All shot with Z6 & Z 400/4.5 VR S, first three are in DX-mode.

Thank you very much!

The entry of the herd of wild horses, around 300-400 animals after all, is an unforgettable experience.
Although I have no special relationship with horses, i.e. I don't have any significant contact with horses, the moment when you can hear the rumble of hooves from afar and the herd enters the arena is not only very primal, but also downright emotional.
It's hard to describe, but it gives you an idea of how majestic such herds of large wild animals must have been in prehistoric times.
An unforgettable experience, even without a photographic background.

The only drawback on yesterday's day and as a result of modern digital camera technology with high frame rates, the number of shots/releases during the event was easily in the four-digit range, nearly 3000.
I haven't even been able to view half of my shots yet.
Sometimes I'm really glad that I only own a Z6, because with a Z9 there would probably have been twice as many.

But I also have to say that the Z6 absolutely delivers.
If you work with the traditional AF methods, i.e. don't rely on tracking/auto-tracking, but work with the appropriate AF fields and of course with a certain amount of anticipation, as you needed in MF times, then the yield is very high.
Only when very fast movement comes directly at you, the AF does not follow fast enough and you have occasional blurred images in high frame rate series.
As I don't regularly shoot action, I was pleasantly surprised at how little wastage due to incorrect focus so far.
