Hayden and Duke

Young Hayden with elder Duke. From a recent visit … just me, the horses and about a million hunters.

Stay close to one another, TJ. 😉
Pretty image, as usual.

I do try to keep a close eye on the goings-on as much as possible. The horses seem little bothered except that they’re farther from traveled areas (roads).

Are horses ever killed during hunting season?

Not since I’ve been documenting them. It’s a season of much-increased (human) population in Disappointment, though, and it always makes me nervous. From no one here but the birds and critters to “hunter towns” up and down the Disappointment Road, it’s not a welcome intrusion. Whine, whine, whine. 🙂

One of my co-workers left California to hunt in Disappointment Valley. I told him to keep an eye out for the horses, and if he happened to see any to take pictures to show me, I want to see if I can identify them. He has seen horses in the past when he’s gone hunting there. He enjoys watching them also. He doesn’t really hunt, he says it’s an excuse to go back to see family and camp in the basin.

The states of California and Texas must be close to empty right now; I’m pretty sure all your residents are here in Colorado! But I’m glad your coworker likes to see the horses. 🙂

Beautiful photo. Thank you TJ, Duke and Hayden! Just as we sent you positive thoughts and prayers during the drought, we will do the same during this time of sharing your beautiful open land. Hopefully all four legged creatures are in some type of hiding…

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for the valley and her residents – always!

They’ll all KNOW how to survive – they’ve been doing it for a very long time, even with two-legged hunters! Thanks for a great photo! 🙂
