There’s not a wide enough lens made to really show the full beauty of Spring Creek Basin. But we’ll continue to do our best to show it off in pictures. 🙂

Another pretty poser. 🙂 Corazon likes to find awesome backgrounds, too. He’s very particular.

Of note: In the background at far right, you can see the 12,000-gallon tank associated with one of our two water catchments in the basin. Aprons on the ground collect rain water and snow, then funnel that water to the tank … then to a trough for the horses. We have two of these in the basin, and they provide the horses’ only sources of clean drinking water – the others are silty and salty.

Shadow; Brumley Point and Temple Butte

Shadowlita again because, wary as she is, she does tend to get herself into positions that showcase some of Spring Creek Basin’s amazing horizons. 🙂 Here, Brumley Point and Temple Butte.

Handsome boy in a beautiful landscape.





No exertion here

Storm; Temple Butte and Brumley Point

Storm was napping in the cooler-than-usual summer sunshine, with his band grazing around him. I found a place to sit and watch (taking advantage of the spectacular background!), and every now and then, he’d come alert and look over, assure himself that all was well, then return to his nap.

Not too much bothers the big boy. 🙂





Return

Hollywood; Temple Butte

Mr. Calm trots back to his band after a brief get-together with some young bachelors. Hollywood has reason to be calm; he’s in his prime, and actual challenges are few.





Little bitty dirty boy

S'aka; McKenna Peak (barely seen, Temple Butte)

When the weather turns warmer and the wind (!) isn’t keeping the gnats away, wild ponies head to the spa. (The wind has been ferocious the last couple of days, and I’ve still been swatting at my face under the brim of my visor.)
