Slate – 2006

26 03 2008

Barb Headley, a member of the Mesa Verde Back Country Horsemen and a herd monitor with the San Juan Mountains Association, sent me some photos last week that she took in the summer of 2006 in the herd area. They’re really some fabulous photos, and they show Slate and Bounce and Hollywood, as well as an older grey stallion (that I think was gathered and removed in August 2007) and Slate’s 2006 foal and yearling colt.


That’s Slate at center with her 2006 foal – nice looking, eh? – her dun yearling at left and the grey stallion.


There’s Hollywood at left and Slate in the foreground.


Slate leading the way with her 2006 foal, followed by the grey stallion and Bounce. Barb said she thought Bounce was the band stallion, so perhaps the older grey was with them for companionship.

Isn’t it cool to see these photos as evidence of the way things were? Thanks for sharing them, Barb!

I feel really sad that Slate is missing, she’s one of my favorites. 😦 I hope she turns up OK.
What fun to see my pics on your blog. Thanks much!
I love reading about your visits! Your writing style is such that it’s kinda like being with you in camp & hearing about it while sitting around the campfire.
Thanks for keeping us up to date on the herd, I don’t get out there nearly as much as I’d like to.
