He “floats” down a hillside in front of me. As most of you know, this is my favorite stallion on the Piceance-East Douglas horse range. I’ve been following him since 2006 (first Handsome photo). We searched for days for this boy at the end of December. I didn’t want to leave until I had gotten a chance to see how he was doing. On the last day, with only a couple of hours of left before we had to head out, there he was. Finally. He was alone, but he looked good. Of course I wish he’d hook up with some other bachelor stallions, but maybe he will at some point. Earlier in the year, he had a foal with him briefly (that story here). Then we spotted him at the end of October hanging out near a band of 11 and playing with one of its junior members. At least we know he gets social once in a while. 😉
