Protecting the baby. This mare and foal became separated from their stallion briefly and as he was figuring out a way around an obstacle, this beautiful mare kept close to the youngster and safe from harm (us – the perceived threat). The family was reunited in no time and all was well. 🙂 (Piceance-East Douglas HMA, CO)

Photo of the Week – 9/22/19

Barcus area stallions. The bay on the right is Shiraz. I know I say this a lot, but he’s one of my favorites out there. 😉 I hadn’t seen him in a couple of years, so this was a wonderful and overdue sighting. His gray buddy is quite a looker as well. (Piceance-East Douglas HMA, CO.)

Wild Horses Overhead :)

June 30, 2019

An early morning encounter with horses on a high ridge above us. Piceance-East Douglas, HMA. (Colorado, 6/2019)

(click on the photos for larger, sharper views)
The band stallion is the gray (almost white) guy on the far right (known as Seven).

I’ve been spotted!

This mare is known as Honey.

This little one is getting angry, pinned ears from a mare that is not his mother.

Hurrying towards mom.

Last year’s foals. The perlino has blue eyes and the sun makes her squint.

The little bay foal on the far right does belong to “angry ears.” 😉

The band is being followed by a gray, bachelor stallion.

Coming down from the ridge.

And into a small meadow where we left them to graze. A cute parting glance from the youngest member of the band. 🙂

Piceance Bachelor Boys

April 6, 2019

I try very hard not to sneak up on horses, but these two bachelor boys were so intent on eating, that they barely noticed my approach. When they did, they were a bit startled and briefly bolted.

Look at the flexion in his body as he scrambles away.

They didn’t go far and since I didn’t make a move to close the distance between us, they became more curious about me.

I love the frosting in his mane.

It was nice to spend some time with these two and I left while they were still relatively comfortable with me.

Another sweet encounter with the wild ones. 🙂
