There to there and back again

So here’s the deal with the pintos: They are self-segregating (if not self-regulating) and are not very often seen unless you work hard to see them. The last couple of times I’ve seen them, I have, in fact walked worked very hard to see them. Readers might recognize the above pic as a zoomed-in version of a photo I posted when I announced Reya had had her filly. I post it in lieu of the pic I would have taken the night before last if a) I hadn’t been on top of Round Top, b) they hadn’t been way out yonder and c) they/I would have been, you know, closer to each other.

I thought I was smart by hiking in from my favorite spot (no roads in McKenna Peak Wilderness Study Area – aka, “the WSA”). They were smarter (no comments!) by being where they would have been easily accessible had I driven in to my favorite drive-in spot from which to access the WSA. Naturally.

Early in the hike, I thought I might come back with pix of Ty, Chipeta and Seneca to share with you all, but, as the song goes, they might have been just an illusion, as completely, thoroughly and totally as they disappeared. I saw them, went to check on David, whose back I saw briefly, and when I went back to where I had seen Ty’s band: nada. Not even from the top of Round Top could I spot them again.

Even from a distance, through the binoculars, baby looked fine and healthy.

Reya and her new baby filly.

By the way, baby’s name is Spirit. Thanks to Corrie for the suggestion. 🙂
