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.

Such a Flirt!

This image made me laugh out loud, so thought I’d share in hopes it brings about the same in viewers, since laughter is always good for the soul. 😉 A very muddy Piceance bachelor stallion (8/2018).

Eye Candy

She’s some pretty “eye candy” out there on the range with her new colt – so we call her Candy. Piceance-East Douglas HMA, CO.

“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…

While quietly watching one of my favorite horses, we heard running hooves (an amazing sound) and then from our right, we saw a family band come charging out of the trees in front of us. They’re quite a ways off, but what a sight! Running for the sheer joy of it. (Piceance-East Douglas HMA, CO)
