Ladies’ man

29 07 2013


The bands were drinking in the bottom of an arroyo the other night, and Mona and Shane wandered off. They might have thought the others would follow, but they didn’t. Pretty soon, there came whinnying, and Comanche responded to the damsels in distress (they’re not even his mares). All was well when he shepherded them back to the flock, err, band(s).


Bonus pic because he’s so darn handsome. 🙂


P.S. Dear god(ess)s of rain and all dancers who kept the faith for the wet stuff: THANK YOU! We got a massive downpour yesterday afternoon. If that doesn’t fill ponds, I don’t know what will.

Gold ‘n light

Kestrel and Comanche

Kestrel and Comanche in the last hint of late light. Golden girl and handsome light mister.

Compare the hair

Sundance and Comanche compare hair.

Sundance and Comanche have a little after-dinner chat. Who knew stallions were really talking about their “do’s” – as in hair-do’s – when they get together. (We all thought they were talking about their mares’ do’s!)

Smile, and enjoy your day. 🙂

Beloved horizon

A quote I saw and liked recently: “We all live under the same sky, but we don’t all have the same horizon.” ~ Konrad Adenauer


Hollywood leads Madison, Comanche and Kestrel (and the rest of the bands’ members) away from the roller-coaster ridge pond, where they drank at the end of the day.

This horizon from Spring Creek Basin: Unique and much loved. With mustangs in front of that horizon: Heaven under the sky.

Although the photo is slightly out of focus, I love the expression Comanche is giving here! He barely looked up from his grazing, but when he did, this was the look he gave me.

Lovely last light rimming his ears and the ends of his mane. Handsome. 🙂

Faery lights

Comanche at sunset.

Adore Comanche in the dancing light at the end-o-day.

Do you think they know how gorgeous they are? How perfectly they catch the light and reflect its magic? They make my heart sing. What songs fill their hearts?

Goo-goo eyes

Comanche making eyes at Piedra.

Comanche welcoming Piedra to his side of the arroyo.

Not to fear: Hollywood intervened, and all was well.
