Photo Of The Week – 10/20/10

October 20, 2010

Cute little blue roan filly from the Red Desert Complex of Wyoming. (September, 2010)
Update: Got in a hurry when I should have studied ALL of the photos of this wild one and the group HE was in. This is a young STUD colt. I was so sure I remembered this particular face as a young filly. (So much for a flawless memory…) 🙂

    I absolutely love your photography.. and this beautiful girl inspired me to post to you for the first time – I hope she lives a long life, and has lots of babies.. and passes on that beautiful colour!

    WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE MARE. IS SHE ONE OF THE HORSES THEY WILL BE ROUNDUP. SHE LOOKS TO BE 1-1/2 YEARS. FROM MISSOURI WE WOULD CALL THIS MARE A BLUE ROAN. I REALLY HOPE THEY DO NOT GET HER. SALAZAR IS TRYING TO DESTROY THE HORSES AND I ONLY PRAY WE CAN STOP HIM. THE CATTORS KNOW MOST OF THESE HORSES ARE GOING TO SLAUGHTER AND THEY DON’T CARE HOW THEY TREAT THEM. THEY ARE PAID FOR EVERY ONE THEY BRING INTO THE HOLDING PENS…AFTER THAT WHO CARES IF THEY LIVE OR DIE.

    What a great picture of this beautiful filly! Just look at that eye on her….awww. Do you know if she was captured? I love looking at these noble wild ones through your eyes, Pam. Thank you again for sharing with us.

  5. Carmen Tieszen Says:

    Thank you for sharing your photos of these beautiful horses! I am praying that the slaughter of wild horses can be stopped. This little filly reminds me of a blue roan mare that I had when I was a kid. Her name was Steel Dust.

    She reminds me of a blueberry. Beautiful color!

  7. Karen Says:

    Another stunning Colt Pam! I always feel like I am right there when I look at your work, thanks for sharing!

  8. Barbara Says:

    I pray he stays free and intact. Good genes are badly needed.

  9. Deby Zimmerman Says:

    Hopefully the courts will wake up and STOP Butcher Salazar and his crew of slaughter dogs. I see nothing else about this man, and have never believed a thing he said even when he was still here in Colorado. He double talks better than any auctioneer can chant and his double talking is what is keeping him going and his minions believing his b.s. For all of us who call, email, text, etc. it now appears that those in the offices “taking our information” are routing it to the “round files”…… either that, or we are trying to communicate with brick walls!! There is yet to see ONE of these horses in the deplorable condition that BLM uses as their excuse and reason for taking them off of their ranges! Keep up the good work because for every photo YOU and the others take SHOWING HEALTHY AND PHYSICALLY FIT HORSES, will one day be the deciding factor, should we ever get a judge with the balls to stand up to this gestapo group called BLM. You are appreciated much more than you realize, as are all of the others who take the time and expenses to do this for our mustangs. Thank you and God Bless you all!!!

    Another Beauty that’s out of this world.

    He’s a beauty for sure Billie. Thanks for your comment.

    Thanks so much for your nice note Cee. I’m so glad you were inspired by this handsome boy to post for the first time. 🙂 Much appreciated and hope to hear from you again.

    Shirley – the Red Desert Complex had a roundup last Fall. Hopefully, this youngster will have several more years of freedom before the next one.

    Thanks Susan. I really love the look of this horse. 🙂

  17. pnickoles Says:

    Thank you for your comments Kim.

    Steel Dust must have been a beauty Carmen.

    I love that Puller – a blueberry! 🙂

  18. pnickoles Says:

    Karen – you always say the nicest things.

    Barbara – he would pass along some wonderful genetics for sure. Really nice colt.

    Thanks so much Deby. I can certainly appreciate your views on the current situation with our wild ones. 😦

    Hey TJ – this boy was the most curious of the bunch. He went back and forth studying me, but never took off. 🙂
