Studious stepping

Spirit places each hoof carefully on the slippery shale while walking down a fin of a ridge on the west side of Round Top. What they were doing up there – and they were up there! – only they know.

The view is fabulous, but the grazing is sparse!

For sure, what were they cling around up there?

Napping when I saw them … then grazing their way along the bench they were on … then starting to head down – but that could have been my influence.

Lost my breath just looking at this photo. Which by the way another beautiful picture story.

Could there be minerals or salt up there that they eat/lick?

No more than usual, I think?

There’s not much green on any side of any fences. 😦

Certainly no one – even me πŸ™‚ – could sneak up on them there!

Going for a stroll perhaps…to check out the view? 😊 I love this photo, TJ!

By the tracks up one of the ridges, I think they just sort of moseyed along grazing and found themselves where they were. There was ground under their hooves, and I’m not sure they think of heights as *something different* the way we do. They weren’t in a hurry to head back down, either. πŸ™‚
