This girl

6 04 2023

Sometimes, the horses just happen to be behind things (trees, greasewood, etc.) when I aim my camera in their direction. It’s hard to tell whether they really think they’re “hiding” with something between me and them. It does make for humorous thoughts/comments to go with the images.

But in this case, Chipeta stopping behind the tree most definitely was deliberate. She stopped on the side of an arroyo near where I was sitting and gave me the eyeball, then trotted down and through and up the other side – and stopped right as you see her and gave me another eyeball from there! Ha!

She waited a few moments, and when I didn’t move (other than to take more pictures), she walked on out to graze. Smart, beautiful girl. πŸ™‚ (And such a character!)

Oh, I don’t think she thought anything like that. πŸ™‚ I think, maybe, she wanted to observe … thinking herself unseen … maybe. πŸ™‚

Chipeta in peekaboo-I see you mode is the cutest! And that face…what can I say. She is just completely endearing.

Or not so much … which is why she thought to “hide” a minute! πŸ™‚

Hide and seek, can be tricky with her coloration! There is still a ridiculous amount of snow in the San Juan’s so I’m hoping for a nice, slow melt and creeks running wild!

True – she doesn’t know she’s NOT camouflaged! πŸ˜‰ Still lots of snow high above Disappointment Valley, too. That doesn’t benefit Spring Creek Basin – Disappointment Creek doesn’t run through the basin – but hopefully our soil is moist and ready to spring into growing season!
