Photo Of The Week – 3/16/11

March 16, 2011

This is the stallion Lightning from Sand Wash Basin, CO. He was kept busy chasing off other stallions as he tried to maintain his band last spring (which he later lost).

    Oh, he is so beautiful! But so sad to hear he lost his band – maybe he got them back or a new family by now.

    Falling behind on my responses again. Truly, I appreciate you all taking the time to comment and I apologize for being tardy with mine.

    Lightning lost his family to another stallion and wasn’t seen for quite a while. He’s back though but I haven’t heard whether or not he’s regained any family members.

    Hi Kimme and thank you for letting me know you enjoy the posts. No, I don’t have a book…yet, but it’s been suggested to me many times so I may look into it as a future project.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts – all of you! 🙂
