Photo Of The Week – 05/19/10

May 19, 2010

What a pretty mover – he’s floating. A Piceance Creek bachelor stallion from our visit to that HMA last weekend. I had hiked over to a ridge where I thought I had seen some horses. I had no idea as I topped a hill that this boy (and 4 others) were directly below and in front of me and I accidentally startled them (something I try very hard not to do). Once they got over the initial shock of seeing me suddenly appear, they settled down a bit, but they never let me get very close. Sorry boys.

    What a gorgeous boy and what a shame our politicians and those with the BLM feel so threatened by their freedom and beauty that they have to lie about the range conditions and blame these creatures of God for the damage caused by the cattle they constantly put on it. To want to totally rid MY (and every other taxpayer) open range of OUR horses is beyond criminal! Funny, how there are more antelope and mule deer and elk, and yet THEY are persecuted this way!!! Keep the photos coming and help with documentating like you do, and just maybe in the near future this will all stop! Thank you for EVERY photo you take, and share with all of us. At least the WORLD can now see what is being done to our horses, and NOT because WE don’t care, but because our POLITICIANS don’t!

    Lori – I love to watch the horses show their stuff when they’re feeling good. 🙂

    It’s amazing to watch these wild horses and then wonder why some folks just don’t care. As I’ve said before, these are not “rag-tag-nags” – these are beautiful, well put-together animals with wonderfully complex families and herd dynamics. We stand to lose so much if they continue to be taken from us and their rightful homes.
