Golden girl in the grasses

5 11 2022

It’s hard to see with the sun shining through it, but a lot of that grama grass in front of Kestrel actually is mostly green, not the dead-dry yellow you would expect of autumn. The mustangs that are grazing in that area are pretty happy little grazers.

Goodies is right, and the ponies are happy as kids in a candy store!

Pretty Kestrel and pretty green! I can see those little green blades – “happy grazers” indeed!

She’s such an awesome “product model.” 😉

I’ve never seen a horse with this coloration before. It’s stunning. There’s no green here any more.

Buckskin. It’s not common in our herd; Kestrel’s color comes from her mother, Luna, who was introduced in 2001 from Sand Wash Basin as a 2-year-old – just like three mares in 2008 and again in 2021! 🙂

But the dapple — that’s beautiful and interesting.

Dapples in any (solid) color (as in, not grey) generally indicate good health. 🙂

there are still, on my lil local place – so far from you! despite drought, freezes, snow, blinding sun/highwinds – that display ‘green’ amid the yellows/browns of dead/dying here, too – still – today! as I catch up on my read bloggers I follow day! 11/11/22 – I am continually surprised over the diversity of my landscape – that which was here before I, that which got blown/carted in, on purpose or not by me – what shows up in various seasons, given conditions – what friends/foes appear that, at various stages of life/death cycles? appear so much alike, but are so vastly different – sigh – the landscape – always the same and yet never ever, exactly the same, eh?? 😀

Eh, indeed. 🙂 I never tire of even the minute changes.
