Welcome anniversary

11 09 2022

Usually, I make a point of culling pix of the horses with their jaws working because it’s usually less than flattering. But in some cases lately, it’s just one more way to illustrate the good grass available to the horses right now.

It’s also a good way to illustrate/celebrate Rowan’s, Aiyanna’s and Dundee’s one-year anniversary of arriving in Spring Creek Basin from Sand Wash Basin!

Last year, we had monsoon rains, too, which also provided a wonderful and very welcome relief of drought conditions in the form of growing grasses and refilled ponds (it’s kind of (!) a big deal because it had been a number of years since we’d had any kind of monsoon season). The timing meant that in September, we were able to welcome the girls to their new range in high style – and literally high grass. That’s also something to celebrate. 🙂

Still can’t get enough of these three! They truly belong now, and I’m so glad their arrival has come with a bit of monsoon. Love seeing them working those jaws!

They’re so comfortable and settled, and I love to see Buckeye with mares – especially these three beauties!

Mustangs are so adaptable (in most cases), and I’m hugely grateful and relieved that they’re doing so well. They’re very much accepted. … They led the way to a different area to graze the other day, and three different bands followed them!

Kat mentioned your blog and this wonderful photo of the three mares imported from SWB when I offered to take her there for a visit after the Badass Women panel. I figured she couldn’t make it – just wanted to offer to share my knowledge of the basin – but so glad to find your blog and see your photo of the three new girls, all bathed in golden light. I’m the one who send you a photo last year of Rowan and her sire Bogey, and am so glad she’s doing well in her new home!

Yes, thank you! Maybe we’ll be able to take you up on your great offer another time, and please come visit Spring Creek Basin if/when you can. Rowan and her mare friends Dundee and Aiyanna are definitely besties. 🙂 We love that they’re here!
