    This is how these horses are ment to be free out west not in the east in the humidity.

  2. Puller Lanigan Says:

    Wow, these horses all have the same profile. Modified Roman noses…interesting. Is the grullo the stallion?

    BEAUTIFUL PAM. THIS PICTURE REALLY TELL THE STORY OF A WILD HORSE FAMILY AND HOW MUCH OF A FAMILY UNIT THEY ARE.
    MAY THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD OPEN THEIR EYES AND REALIZE HORSES CARE FOR THE WELFARE OF THEIR FAMILIES TOO.

    Pam, Would you send me this picture so I can forward it to a friend who has a mare from SW – she is identical to the buckskin/dun – probably related. We adopted her at the CSU/BLM auction 4 yrs. ago. What part of the range was this picture taken? Do you know who’s band it is?

    hi Pam, beautiful photo, awesome horses. could you please explain something more about these horses’ head shapes? they look quite unusual, and remind me of the Sorrayas. is this a common profile with mustangs or with the Sand Wash Basin herds? thank you! and post more of them!
    stay safe – Lu x

    Hi TJ – agreed. 🙂

    Puller – the gray in the foreground is the stallion. I believe the foal was the grulla’s.

    Thanks for your comment Shirley. They are absolutely family oriented.

    Lyn – I took this picture almost immediately upon entering the range. They initially ran from us, then unexpectedly turned and ran right towards us and up the hill. If I remember correctly, the band stallion was Cosmo and this was taken last July.

    Hi Lu – very observant. 🙂 Yes, the head shape (along with the blazes and pinto markings) are typical of the Sand Wash horses.

    Thanks for your comments and for stopping by Lisa!
