Feeling Good

September 14, 2012

On one of our visits to the Piceance Creek/East Douglas HMA this year, a family of horses came running down a hillside where I was standing. The young stud in the group was feeling good and made me laugh with his horsey antics. I always enjoy catching them in playful moods.

He decides to see if the band stallion feels like playing with him.

Gotta love this face. πŸ™‚

Oh, and this one. What a happy guy. πŸ™‚

You’re quite a character mister. πŸ™‚

    Great photos of this band having fun. The gray band stallion is the one that Linda Gresham Hannick gave the very fitting name of Mercury. I love your Piceance photos!

    Thanks Kim, Marie and Grandma Gregg! Nice to hear that the images put a smile on your faces too. πŸ˜‰

    Hi Dona – Mercury, huh? He’s a nice boy. Does the funny bay stud have a name? Thanks for your comments. I do so love these horses. Well, I know, I say that about all of them, but Piceance seems to call to me. Wish I lived closer.

    What an incredible photo essay! I love those expressions you were able to capture!

    Certainly shows how much this little herd is a family.
    Breaks my heart to hear how the BLM tears them apart.
    But we never would “know” these horses as we do if you didnt go out & get these pictures. So appreciate what you do.

    Love how the foal is “sandwiched” between the colt and the dam. Even when bucking he was careful of the foal. Lovely series! Thank you.

    How fun. Love the young stallions expressions when he encounters the big gray!!

  18. Craig Says:

    Wonderful to see them so free and at ease! this is how they should be not harassed and hampered in their free roaming life style! People would greatly benefit by allowing them to so live!

  19. Laura Says:
