    Now these guys have somewhere to go. Looks like rush hour. Love to see the intentionality and decisiveness in this photo.

    There is definitely a plan.

    Let them live their lives in peace and go about their business everyday in this beautiful place.

    Thanks so much Darcy – so happy to hear you enjoy the photos. 🙂 We’re doing well. Hope you are too!

    Thanks for your comments Arlene and Barbara. Nice to hear from you both.

    Shirley – there was a roundup of the Dishpan Butte horses in the summer of 2009. I took these photos just weeks afterwards. I don’t know when the next one is planned.

    Hi Katrine – I loved seeing these guys late in the afternoon when the light was so warm. 🙂

    Good morning Forest Horse! 🙂

    Love your description Janet. Thanks for sharing.

    Good morning to you too Arlene. 🙂

    Great lighting and tilt of head of grey stallion. A bit like being there. Thanks Pam

    Dear Pam , I have noticed out of every herd of horses whether large of small there is always one who will turn his Beautiful head to acknowledge our presence…….

  12. elissa kline Says:

    Stunning shot. Terrain and horses look very similar to the herds I know in Idaho.

  13. Is it Ok if I share a link to a blog of mine on a BLM horse recently bought at auction?

    Beautiful photo….I love horses. I love horses. I love horses.

  14. pnickoles Says:

    It would have been nice to share the moment with you Craig.

    Love it Arlene – and it’s a gift when they acknowledge you.

    Thank you Elissa. Maybe someday, I’ll get to see those wild horses of Idaho.

    Featherlady11 – by all means. Share your link. 🙂

  15. Thank you Pam!

    This mare turned up at auction with her yearling filly, her 5 month old filly, and a foundation QH stud who sired the fillies. She is BLM branded. About 12 years old. 15 hands or so and weighed 850 pounds when I checked after getting her home. Her fillies sold for $50-$65 each…hard to understand the auctioneer, Feather sold for $75. It’s also very possible I bid against myself.


    The blog isn’t very big yet. Whether she will just be a rehab project is unknown at this point. But I knew when I bid on this hard to catch mare, that I could get her going in the right direction with groundwork and hoof trims.

    Lucky horses Featherlady11. 🙂
