Chipeta with the iconic unnamed promontory behind her. Some girls wear braids or dye a lock of hair; Chipeta is following mustang fashion with the twig accessory. She is a trendy girl.

Ty watches Copper.

I don’t think I posted these, taken a few weeks ago. Such a sweet family.

Seneca and daddy Ty.

Seneca carefully watches daddy Ty graze the choice grasses still available through the snow. Pictured is – I think – sand dropseed, prevalent throughout the basin.

Seneca and daddy Ty.

Mini me with daddy. Nearly identical stances, which isn’t all that unusual, but it’s CUTE!

Seneca making a funny face while grazing in the snow with daddy Ty.

Mmm hmm. Cute. 🙂





Looking out for baby

Ty and his baby girl, Seneca.

Daddy Ty, like most stallion daddies, is a very good daddy! Seneca likes to hang out with him. I love his stance of casual protection while baby girl grazes right beside him. Mama Chipeta grazes contentedly in the background.





Baby news

Speaking of late babies, this little girl, born Sept. 23, is doing perfectly well!

She IS a daddy’s girl.

We got some good snow a few days ago, and most of the basin has quite a good cover. Now it’s cold – sometimes bitterly cold – under the crystal-clear sky. But the horses have thick, rich, furry coats, and they’re in excellent shape!

Daddies love their babies, too. Ty and Seneca (mama Chipeta is leading just to the left).
