Photo Of The Week – 7/13/11

July 13, 2011

This is Hayden, a coming 2 year-old from the Spring Creek Basin HMA in southwestern Colorado. We spent a day there last week and met up with our friend TJ Holmes who knows this herd well. Check out her Blog at:

We came across Hayden’s band upon entering the HMA and had walked over to photograph them when hubby found a brightly colored collared lizard to distract me momentarily. I guess me squatting on the ground proved pretty intriguing to this young boy. After several minutes with the lizard, I stood up and turned around to find Hayden staring at me with this, “whatcha doin’?” look. Made me laugh. I love the wild horse’s natural curiosity. And doesn’t he have the sweetest heart-shaped star? 🙂

    Aww, he is a beauty as you said. I do love that inquisitive look! Being inquisitive myself, I’d love to see a photo of your collared lizard, too. 🙂

    Love the “heart” star.Are you planning to go to the Pryors this year?

  3. pnickoles Says:

    HA Celeste – the collared lizard will definitely be part of my Part Two post from our trip around Colorado. 😉

  4. pnickoles Says:

    Hi Maria – well, due to the rising cost of darn near everything, but in particular gas, our trips to the ranges have had to be fewer this year. Haven’t made it to the Pryor’s yet, but we’re tentatively planning a fall visit.
