Sand Wash Basin stallion

Be still my wild heart. This is Star, also pictured a few days ago with the setting full moon. Isn’t he phenomenal?

Note the ears in the sagebrush in front of Star. That’s the yearling colt in his band (his son?), Meteor.

And notice that big, big, wide-open country. Mustang country, for sure!

Handsome times two

Bachelor stallions in Sand Wash Basin.

These two boys entertained themselves for a while on a beautiful morning in Sand Wash Basin. Mostly, they were too far for decent photos, but then they came trotting past us – us being other peacefully grazing bands. They carried their own energy through and past.

Sand Wash Basin stallion Kiowa.

This is stallion Kiowa, I think. His band and Cosmo’s band were close together and with a few other bands the couple of mornings I was fortunate to visit with them. He’s a pretty hunky guy – don’t you love that studly profile?!

Harvest moon

The full harvest moon rises over Sand Wash Basin.

The full, magnificent, phenomenal, gorgeous, spectacular, astoundingly amazing and very full moon rose over Sand Wash Basin the night before SWAT’s/GEMS’ Rendezvous.

Wow! Magic.

Gosh, so golden
