1511 Chrome, McKenna Peak and Temple Butte

Such intelligence, curiosity, alertness – presence – and present in the world, his world.

Chrome is backed by McKenna Peak and Temple Butte – icons of Spring Creek Basin. The snow looks great in the background, but the foreground was pretty bare of snow. However, the ground was damp, and that’s always a good thing.


Happy birthday, Kat!

Oh, my, there he is–my first love (among mustang stallions). Brings tears and heart palpitations both. I would dance with him if I could, yet I’m happy I can’t. May he stay forever free!!! Completely gorgas photo, TJ–thank you!

Is he actually a roan? His coloring is so ‘Arabian’. Handsome and regal icon!

No, he’s grey – fleabitten grey is the term for the flecking. Some of what you’re seeing is mud. We don’t have any roans in Spring Creek Basin, but because of the way greys “grey out” – from sorrel, bay, brown, black … – people often think they see roans here. You can clearly see the edges of his big blaze, which, with his four stockings (now harder to see), gave him his name when he was a much darker youngster. 🙂

placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them long and long”

Perfectly and beautifully said – and quoted here. Thank you, George! I wonder what they wonder when they stand and look at us?!

TJ, I believe Chrome is having a private conversation with you!! Thank you, each photo you share gives us the opportunity to not only enjoy the natural beauty of the beautiful mustangs but also a better understanding of how well nature does on its own…
