One tree, multi-shading

2 07 2010

Chrome and his family were finding a little refuge from the gnats under a juniper when I arrived this week. The ever-present breeze helps some, too.

Very nearby, Two Boots and Rio.

The gang’s all there. What a cool tree, eh?

very cool tree and a much welcome relief for the horses on those hot, sunny days.

Nice photo, thanks. . .

Hope with all the BLM and Interior projects out there that this won’t be the last 5 horses and last darn tree left in the West. Just a cynical thought to “throw out there.”

The photo is almost scary in its symbolism.

Beautiful photo! Awesome tree (Mr Tree, please keep up your wonderful shading services for my favorite five, if you can. ;), and stunning horses as always. Gotta love Chrome’s Band!

Billie – Right on! Lots of horses were up hillsides under trees, seeking shade and breezes.

Janet – You missed a horse. There are six horses in this band … four in the first photo, two in the second photo, all in the last photo … unless you, like BLM, don’t count foals. šŸ™‚ I try to stay optimistic. Doom and gloom is self-perpetuating. As for symbolism, I see a protective giant, green and alive and growing, sheltering just one band of many – today, yesterday, tomorrow. Like you’ve said previously, many people are working very hard to keep that – this – a reality.

VC – I knew you would like these pix. šŸ˜‰ Don’t forget little Rio – makes six!

Perfect analogy of the tree… We, too, prefer to stay positive – these guys have many two-legged guardians! Perhaps, that will figure into something good for all the wild ones! Thanks, TJ, for keeping us all connected to their world!!
