Such a boy

A, who adopted Liberty, had a wonderful art show tonight in Ridgway: “Liberty and Family and Friends” drew a big crowd of Spring Creek Basin mustang supporters!

She had several paintings of Liberty, of course, as well as paintings of horses we’ve recently lost: Twister, Hook, Cinch, Kiowa …

A’s painting of Cinch, from a photo I took of him last March. Actually, I’m sure she won’t mind if I provide her name, as the artist: She is Alice Billings of Ridgway. Isn’t this fantastic?

I met several people I’d previously known only by name/email/phone/Facebook. To see all the people so enamored of and supportive of our mustangs was awesome.

These photos are for L’s daughter, who said Hayden is her favorite. πŸ™‚

What a sweetie. Terra walked over to Hayden, where he was napping under a tree, minding his own business. It’s fun to watch the girls with him. It’s probably not quite as much fun to be him, dealing with the girls teasing him.

But he gives back almost as good as he gets. πŸ™‚

Later, he laid down while they were napping, and they stood protectively over him, his head inches from their hooves. I love watching them.

The top shot of Terra and Hayden is a very nice one. It must have been very enjoyable to watch them at peace. They are always careful for the one that is lying down, so that they do not bump the sleeping one.

I have not been on the computer for nearly a week, so it is nice to see all of the new posts. I enjoy all of your photos and what makes some pictures special, is the story that goes with them. Keep up the good work.

Ha – the sweetness in the first pic was just the prelude to the playing! They both treat him like little brother, even though he’s older than Winona. I’m curious to see how long he stays with the band.

Rachel – so nice to meet you at Alice’s great show, too! Mindful of people’s privacy, I try not to use full names unless I have permission! πŸ™‚ I hope you and your mom will come see the mustangs with me later this spring.

I would love to go out there again and see them again now that I almost know all there names because of your wonderful blog πŸ™‚ … It’s very peaceful out on the basin. The sky and the land seems like it never ends! πŸ™‚ I really hope one day my mom and me can go riding out there in the summer when we aren’t so busy. When we first went out there last year I knew that it would always have a huge place in my heart. Ttyl, πŸ™‚ Rachel
