A Rio story

25 06 2010

The horses and I have fabulous new friends from Florida! Muchas gracias to T and L for making the loooong trek (and I’m just talking about within the state of Colorado!) out to see our amazing Spring Creek Basin mustangs. I hope you had as much fun meeting them as I had introducing them to you!

Chrome’s family was the first to greet us when we arrived nearly mid-afternoon. The sun was harsh, the ponies were lovely, and Rio gave us a little glimpse of the handsome mustang he’s becoming!

Baby boy was napping in the sunshine as we watched from just off the road.

Mama Two Boots and big brother Cuatro were grazing nearby – but not *right* nearby – unconcerned about us.

But when Rio woke up, mama was not close enough for HIS comfort.

Look at that big trot!

Isn’t he just astounding?!

He has tell-tale rings around his eyes (going to be grey) like Gemma … sister Gemma?? Is Grey/Traveler this boy’s sire??

I’m back, Mama – didja miss me? Notice Two Boots looking at us even while she continues to graze.

Mama, those weird creatures are all looking at me (oohing and ahhing!)!

The end. πŸ™‚ But of course, it’s not really the end, just a little tiny chapter in a day in the life. (More, of course, to come!)

Thank you for a wonderful visit! Hi to friends from Florida!

TJ you sure can see stories as they happen and capture them for us all to enjoy. . .I can almost feel the sun and hear the wind. . .

Pretty boy! πŸ˜‰ I’ll bet he grows up to be as big and handsome as all the other stallions. Hope he is successful in growing up and (maybe) one day having a herd of his very own! Gotta love the little ones.
