Best. Water. Man. Ever.

Spring Creek Basin’s mustangs are fortunate to have Steve Heath – Heath Water Service – in their corner when it comes to delivering water in this time of terrible drought. This isn’t the first time we’ve relied on Steve (and Cecil Foster before him) to deliver water to the basin’s catchment so the horses have a consistent source of water in that trough seen in the background of this photo. It’s one of only two clean sources of water in the basin, the others being silty, salty and fairly low quantity. Two ponds still have water, and there are some other small sources, but they’re shrinking rapidly.

We are so grateful for his dedication and willingness to deliver water to our mustangs!

The Colorado chapter of the National Mustang Association is helping BLM pay for water deliveries to the mustangs during this drought.

Horse Park Fire update: Inciweb lists the fire still at 1,221 acres and 90 percent contained, but by the lack of activity – and smoke – the last couple of days I think they have it pretty much nailed. πŸ™‚ And big news: The area got about 0.15 inch of rain yesterday! For us, that’s huge. It doesn’t ease the drought, but it gave us a little relief.

Tells us ALL that there are people who care about our wild horses (besides wild horse advocates)! There needs to be more stories told like this.

Yeah Steve, Colorado Mustang Association and you keeping the horses on your minds. When I am irrigating the precious water I think of the horses and pray for the monsoons to start early.

Thank you to Steve and the Colorado Mustang Association! And I’m grateful too that the firefighters have about won the battle on the Horse Park Fire. Glad you got a little rain, TJ, all wind here. 😦
