Is it killin’ ya? It’s driving me crazy! Not yet, folks. Not yet.

Some other good news to tide you over: The basin got some good, lovely “female” rain yesterday evening, and given the “iffiness” of some of the arroyo crossings, it has been raining some out there. It doesn’t seem like much, but we’ll take it. Also, Grey/Traveler and his band have found the water tank by the catchment! I’ve seen them in the vicinity twice now, and there are fresh tracks around the bigger of the two tanks. For one thing, this discovery means they’re getting some fresh water, and for another thing, it means the bands are dispersed a little more than they have been all spring and spreading out more to graze.

As for Alpha, she’s big as ever, and her udder looks full. She gets snappy at the two young stallions, Butch and Sundance, and she has started to wander off by herself a short distance – but then she seems just as happy in the middle of the band – and Steeldust seems to be keeping a close eye on her. Signs or just my imagination?

If it’s true that good things come to those who wait, we’re in for a treat!
