A life of wild

12 08 2022

Lovely, wise Winona looks a little disheveled as late summer holds heat and dryness, but we are sliding inexorably toward autumn, with cooler days and nights ahead. Hold on, beautiful. Just a bit longer …





A sigh

A prayer for peace. … And a thousand more … then a thousand more …





Happy birthday, Dad!

This image of wonderful, handsome Sundance is a perfect tribute to my handsome, wonderful dad. 🙂 Always there for me and his family.

I love you, Dad! 🙂





Gettin’ along, goin’ along

Temple and some pals watch a pronghorn buck following his little group of does and fawns up on the western edge of Spring Creek Basin amid glowing 4 o’clock.





Another bit of rainbow magic

8 08 2022

As I was transfixed by this sight of a couple of bands gathered around one of the ponds in Spring Creek Basin, another magical sight was forming over my right shoulder.

Sometimes, you see the things you need most to see … just when you need to see them. And any worries or anxieties melt away in light of the vision before you.

A wide-open view of a wide-open place, crowned by the very best light.

And did I mention that the 4 o’clock is blooming again? No? Well … it is. 🙂





Step ‘n swish

Strength and grace and beauty all in one lovely form. Pretty Alegre follows a faint trail to cross a deep arroyo along the way to water. On they went … and by sunset, they were on their way back to that delicious grass.

(Look at that perfect hoof, never touched by an iron rasp held by the hand of man!)





Bonds of sisterhood

Never far from each other, Winona and Mariah.





Shades of gold

Even mud-spattered, Cassidy Rain glows like an equine goddess.





Lizard, all-knowing

Why do they always look so grumpy … or like they know things you wish you did, if only you could imagine them?





Moody greys

Elegant Juniper with her mud smudges and witchy fairy knots looks right at home under a lowering sky.
