Seven's band - Puzzle, Shadow and Tesora

Seven’s band enjoys good summer grass in Spring Creek Basin. Spring Creek canyon is in the background.

The grass and hills are green, and the ponds have water – all but one of the ponds not dug out.

The bands were drinking in the bottom of an arroyo the other night, and Mona and Shane wandered off. They might have thought the others would follow, but they didn’t. Pretty soon, there came whinnying, and Comanche responded to the damsels in distress (they’re not even his mares). All was well when he shepherded them back to the flock, err, band(s).

Comanche

Bonus pic because he’s so darn handsome. 🙂

P.S. Dear god(ess)s of rain and all dancers who kept the faith for the wet stuff: THANK YOU! We got a massive downpour yesterday afternoon. If that doesn’t fill ponds, I don’t know what will.

Hollywood, Shane, Mona and Aurora drinking in the Spring Creek arroyo.

It doesn’t look like much, but they’re drinking in the bottom of the Spring Creek arroyo in Spring Creek Basin. With more moisture comes more irritation in the form of biting flies.

I love the way her golden coat mirrors the golden arroyo wall glowing in the background.

Juniper

Juniper watches the horses in Hollywood’s band nearby. Those flecks all over her are bits of mud.

Kootenai and Raven explore the edges of another pond that has a little bit of water in it. Some more sprinkles fell over the basin, but we need a nice little downpour. We’re not greedy, but more than less is needed. 🙂
