Photo Of The Week – 2/2/2011

February 3, 2011

This is the palomino stallion Spin from the Little Book Cliffs HMA in Colorado. I love how he blends in with the rugged surroundings of his home. Sometimes I post these distance shots just to illustrate how much better the landscape looks when there’s a wild horse included.

    I’m with you; I love palominos! and your photos are always amazing!

    The horse does really “make” the scene — how it appears he may have been created out of the smooth golden rocks surrounding him.

    Another breathtaking shot!!!…sure hope he keeps his freedom!!!!

  5. Puller Lanigan Says:

    He’s smart, if he has to rest and observe, best to be by a rock the same color. 😉

    Thanks!

    Awesome Palomino , they are spectacular arnt they !!!! He is smart, the standing by a rock thing is a great idea to keep safe !!! Someone must have alerted him to the Rouge BLM……………… Pass the word Beautiful Boy !!!!!!!!!!

    Another beautiful photo! I’ve often wondered if the BLM census-takers “mistake” rocks for standing horses. Could explain their inflated numbers.


  8. I just happened upon your blog and love your photos! I live in Colorado and have an adopted mustang. She was rescued from being sold to a slaughter house at an auction. I was told that she probably came from Wyoming, but I haven’t interpreted her brand. I often imagine her life before being caught and wish she could be wild again, but I could never part with her! Thanks for posting beautiful pictures of wild horses.
