Hollywood, La Sal Mountains

Hollywood with a faraway look in his eye. He was hanging with his band while the other horses were below a nearby ridge.

Chrome courts Mariah.

Chrome finds some with Mariah, if only to relieve an itch.

Clouds welcome

Cassidy Rain

Cassidy Rain on a rare cloudy day.

In the land of sunshine and postcard-perfect days, some clouds – and moisture – would be very welcome.

David and Skywalker

Skywalker is learning wild stallion ways from wary Master David.

Mustang moonrise

Skywalker and David below the moonrise.

And the moon rises! Clever boys, pointing it out. 🙂

Skywalker and David gave me a good visit, and I was heading out, when I looked back and saw that giant moon rising over the basin’s eastern ridgeline. Wow! Seconds later (?!), the sun dropped, and shadows claimed ground.

Not much snow out there.

S'aka and Maiku

S’aka and his buddy Maiku check me out as I walk up their favorite hill for a visit. From this perspective, they look like they’re on top of their world.

‘Masked Man’

Isn’t he cute with his one (visible) bright eye? Friend and mustang adopter Tif recently mentioned a mutual friend, who adopted Maiku’s brother Milagro (now called Skipper). Maiku reminds me so much of Skipper, even though big brother is solid bay.


Maiku is barely a pinto, with a slash of white over his withers.


Wild pony is well-adapted to the winter, even though this one is terribly mild again so far.


Thank you all for your calendar orders! They’re sold out, and close to $250 is going from ya’ll to the Colorado chapter of the National Mustang Association! Thank you, thank you for your generosity in supporting our Spring Creek Basin mustangs!
