These are just pix that jumped out at me when I was going through images. The pix of Sundance and Apollo were cropped from their original horizontal images.

Sundance, looking all kinda handsome.

Mysterium using mama Kootenai’s tail as a fly whisk.

Apollo – wow, huh? Look out, mares!

Duke – look how shiny he is! And those dapples coming out! Interestingly, he and Kreacher were fairly close … (interesting because Duke picked up Raven a couple of years ago right after she had Corona … he kept them until that fall, when Kreacher stole them back, injuring Duke in the process … now they’re both single guys, and someone else – Sundance – has Raven and Kootenai and the foals).

Kreacher wasn’t looking too worse for wear, though he does have quite a few new scars on his left side, from his cheek to his barrel. So he didn’t go lightly into his bachelorhood. He’s on a hill across a drainage from the hill I’m on, Duke behind me. I couldn’t see Duke anymore from where I stood here, but Kreach could see him (because we could see Kreach from where Duke was).

I think I’ve updated on all the new bands/bachelors – maybe more pix of Seven’s band. No pic of Corazon; he was way in, and I didn’t hike out to him. And like I said, I haven’t yet found three horses: David, Poco and Roach. I’m working on updating the “Find a wild horse” page; need to update the photos as well.

Good reports on all the adopted horses I’ve heard about. And really good news about adoptions/sales from Canon City. Of the four from the adoption (Pinon, Baylee, Iya and Liberty), I think all are or will be adopted but Pinon, and he’s not forgotten. I think things are being finalized for all the others that originally went.

Do the horses seem like they miss their buddies? Do the seem to be any more nervous or cautious of you/ humans? I wonder what they think of it all, and how long it takes for what must be a traumatic memory, to fade. I hope you find the other 3 soon. Thanks for the updates!

I wish I could answer your question … but there’s just no way to know what they’re thinking or feeling. They’re still relaxed and calm with me … grazing, grazing, grazing on that great grass that came up with the last rain.

for the animal shall not be measured by man. in a world older and more complex than ours they move finished and complete. gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. they are not brethern, they are not underlings, they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time. henry beston, naturalist 1928
