“Handsome,” Piceance-East Douglas HMA, Colorado. Hadn’t been able to find him since August of last year. It was so good to see him this Spring! He lost a bit of his tail, but gained 2 family members.

Handsome and his family were near a black stallion with a large band. While we were watching, the black stallion charged for Handsome’s girls, but even though Handsome has a chronic limp, that boy can get after it when he needs to. He gets the girls going and out of the area.

Safely away with his little family.

Until next time ‘ol boy…

Hello pretty girl.

Love your long, flowy mane.

It’s a good thing I have an affinity for the gray horses. There are a lot of them in the Piceance-East Douglas HMA. I usually find this guy on my way to the Cathedral Bluffs area of the range. He’s always alert – always aloof. I never tire of the wildness of these horses.

“Hercules” from the Piceance-East Douglas HMA in Colorado. He and his band don’t usually run from us, but this was taken during hunting season, so maybe that had something to do with his quick exit. He and his family were up a canyon in less than a minute. I stayed put when they decided to take off. I don’t like to see calories burned during the winter season. It can be a tough time of year for foraging.

Wild boy! This guy was trying to distract me away from his family and kept doing “flybys” to keep my attention on him (which worked) ;). I’m not close (this photo is cropped), but I’m near enough for him – which I respected. He kept a wary eye on me as you can see in this photo. Awesome band stallion.
