Shadow; Brumley Point

Ahead of the second snowfall – and after – we’ve had some wind. The thirsty ground is slurping the moisture as desperately as you’d imagine.

Dream white

Little S’aka looks like a dream in his wonderland.





Red, white and blue (and some green and brown)

Sigh.

Eat your hearts out, boys. She’s taken. 🙂





Skywalker on the frozen planet

Look at all that lovely summer green.

What, you ask?!

All that winter white means summer green (or least not as brown as it could be). And that is why, every single time it snows (or rains), we are so, so, SO very grateful.

We humans look forward, but the mustangs live in the moment. And right now, they don’t have to go far for a “drink” while they graze. They slurp as they nibble. 🙂

Maiku

Maiku struts his handsome self for the ladies … none of whom were particularly impressed. 🙂

The ground is white again after a fabulous and long snowfall Friday! Yay, moisture!

So grateful.





Surprise snow

23 02 2018

Reya; Temple Butte

Disappointment Valley and the surrounding area got a surprise snowfall Wednesday night and Thursday morning – or at least the timing was a surprise. Any snow is a surprise – and welcome! – this “winter,” frankly, after the terrible dryness.

Southwestern Colorado is classified now as “extreme” on the drought monitor. … As if we didn’t know.

But we have more in our forecast, and hopefully some will stick around. By late afternoon, the above, pictured with lovely Reya, was all that was left of a couple of inches of the wonderful wet whiteness.

C’mon, MORE! 🙂

 





Better than Hollywood

Hollywood

All the glamour … none of the drama. Or red carpets. 🙂 He prefers four-wing saltbush and galleta grass anyway.
