A couple of weekends ago, Tom and I made a trip to the Piceance Creek/East Douglas HMA to spend a couple of days with the wild horses. We were fortunate that our new rancher friend Mike was available to take us hiking and share some of his knowledge of the area with us while we were there. More about those adventures to follow.
If you remember from a previous post, (https://nickolesphotography.wordpress.com/2011/04/17/piceance-creek-hma-3-2011-day-2/) two young wild horses had wandered off the range and onto Mike’s property that he decided to adopt. So of course we had to stop by and see how they were doing since the last time we had seen them.

Well, last week, I was back at Piceance briefly with a friend (a stop on our way to Sand Wash Basin) and I wanted to show him Mike’s horses. We looked all over the pasture, but didn’t spot them. I figured we had just missed seeing them somehow and off we went to Sand Wash Basin.
A couple of nights ago, I received a call from Mike’s wife. She asked me if I was near my computer because she “had a surprise” for me. I hurried home, turned on my computer, found her e-mail and couldn’t quit smiling at her news. Below is what she sent me. 🙂
The mare and foal were moved to their ranch which is why we hadn’t seen her in the pasture.
What a sweet, sweet face.
I just LOVE surprises… 🙂
