Going for Water

November 4, 2018

Last summer, as we were driving around a corner in the Barcus Creek area of Piceance, we startled a band on their way to drink. We stopped, backed up a bit and then watched them charge down the hill and make a wide loop around us to the water tank. These are all members of Hercules’ band.

Hercules. He’s a favorite out there. 🙂

It can be somewhat stressful to watch the little ones come racing down, but they did just fine. Amazing.

Leading the way.

Watching over his family as they drink since there are other bands waiting their turn. He’s an awesome stallion.

    Yes, it’s stressful to see these beautiful adults and foals running down the hill. A misstep can lead to disaster even though they’re agile. Thank you for sharing your pics. Take care and Happy Thanksgiving.
