Photo Of The Week – 9/13/14

September 13, 2014

DSC_7457a-sA small Piceance Creek/East Douglas HMA family with no band stallion. Just a mare with the 2 youngsters. The dark one is a stud colt, but I couldn’t figure out the smallest horse from the distance we saw them from. I wondered why they were out there without a stallion, but they seemed fine. The little stud colt had a “unique” gait. Not sure what was going on there, but again, he seemed just fine. How ’bout that view? There’s so much land that it can be pretty hard to find horses, but when you do, they just add everything to a landscape portrait don’t they?

    That does seem odd to have a stallion near. Hope they all haven’t been rounded up or sterilized.


  2. I meant “not” to have a stallion near.

    It’s amazing–all the dynamics out there with the wild ones. This is beautiful with the dramatic background too!

    She is beautiful, as are her children. Possibly the stud became ill and died or was injured and died. Nobody knows she is available and maybe she likes it that way?

  5. Maggie Frazier Says:

    Hopefully the mare does like it that way! I do hope there are other bands around that area – safety in numbers?

    Very beautiful, how many wild horses are left in the west?
