A little less brown

Could it be any more brown out there? At least Chipeta breaks it up nicely with her brown-and-white loveliness!

Rain dance

Terra looks like she could be doing the basin shuffle, enticing the rain to fall over us in Spring Creek Basin? Maybe if we all join her, we might feel the moisture. 🙂

Magic from heaven

Some more beauty from the other night. 🙂 The very last light illuminated a late little rain burst beyond Filly Peak, which also gave us a little flash of the very last rainbow of the evening!

So close

Mother Nature is teasing us.

Kwana had a little chat with another stallion, then made a bee-line back to his mares, who moved away from the source of conflict … at his very direct request.

We had some very promising clouds, especially toward evening. The wind picked up, the radar showed lovely green … and not a drop fell in the real world. Yep, it’s still dry.

It’s 4 o’clock somewhere

Four o’clock flowers are some of the iconic wildflowers of this part of Colorado and one of those we (OK, I) look forward to seeing most. They’re suddenly blooming in Spring Creek Basin, and they’re a welcome splash of color amid our brown, brown expanse.

Speaking of a splash of color … !!!!!!

Our skies lately have been blue, blue, depressingly blue (depressing while we’re looking for rain clouds). But the last few evenings, we’ve gotten some clouds toward evening, and those have made for some spectacular sunsets.

More little things

As if we needed more proof that our mustangs are divine and under the shine of a higher power!

As May comes to a close, I want to remind readers that the comment period for our Spring Creek Basin Herd Management Area Plan EA is coming to a close (Saturday, May 30). If you’ve already submitted your comment letter, thank you! If you’ve procrastinated, now is the time to type out a letter of positive support regarding Tres Rios Field Office’s HMAP EA. It will guide the management of our mustangs for the next couple of decades and ensure that they are managed and protected to our highest standards.

Here’s the link to BLM’s eplanning site, on which you can find the draft HMAP EA and the button that will allow you to comment through that site:

Or you can send an email to our excellent herd manager (and author of the HMAP EA), Mike Jensen, at m50jense at blm dot gov.

Please note that you support Alternative A – Proposed Action. If you have personal knowledge of our herd and mustangs – whether by visits or even through this blog – please let them know.

Read more at my initial post about the draft HMAP EA at https://springcreekbasinmustangs.com/2020/05/02/little-things/.

And thank you. 🙂 We so appreciate your support.
