Handsome – Winter, 2016

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. 😉

Alert, yet quiet family in the Piceance-East Douglas HMA in Colorado. To me, it’s always a successful visit if the horses don’t feel pressure to run away. Even better when they eventually ignore me enough to observe their normal behavior. It’s truly a gift to be amongst the wild ones and share their beautiful territory. 11/2016

Beautiful wild family in the Piceance-East Douglas HMA of Colorado. The winter photography in this area is amazing, but sometimes a little tough to navigate. So worth it though. We spent several days here over our Christmas holiday. 🙂 (12/2016)
