More mares … a new stallion!

24 09 2021

If that grey guy in the lead looks a little different – dark mane and missing spots – than Flash, it’s because he’s NOT Flash. He’s the girls’ new stallion, Buckeye, a 7-year-old handsome former eligible bachelor! He’s a son of our great Chrome and a (likely) great-grandson of our great Grey (also known as Traveler).

“When evening shadows drift …” I think that’s from a Dave Stamey song, but I can’t recall exactly. We sure do get drifting shadows of an evening here in Spring Creek Basin with our buttes and mesas and ridges and arroyos and rimrocks.

That September light also illuminates gorgeously!

My parents are from Ohio, and my dad is an Ohio State (Buckeyes) alum. πŸ™‚ Buckeye was born the day before my mom’s birthday, and she named him. Lucky, eh?! I think this arrangement might last a fair bit longer.

Buckeye and the new girls make a handsome band! Good for Buckeye – he won their hearts. 😊

Well, he’s just bigger and older than Flash. πŸ™‚ Though Flash did pretty well for a week!

OMG!! It cannot be soon enough before I lay my eyes on this young stallion. Knowing his heritage makes him special to me and to all of you. Thank you TJ for posting all these wonderful pictures and the wordage to keep us all informed about our dear mustangs in Spring Creek basin!

Ha! He found a bachelor friend, so they’re together. It’s all good!

Probably a better match for the new girls (older and wiser) to help them feel safe and protected. Hopefully Flash will have his day soon enough. ❀️

The mustangs do their thing, and we watch, fascinated. πŸ™‚
