The sun finally conquered the clouds by the time I made it out to Storm’s band. While some of the horses grazed a bit, others, like Gaia, napped in the dreamy sunshine.

I had to go up and over a small hill to get to the other side of her (the rest of the band was down to the right) so I wouldn’t disturb her. (You can see her still eyeing me, wondering what the heck I was up to.) Her mane had icicles in it from the snow of the night before, and I was trying to get a pic of it.

It never did work out as well as I’d planned because it was much too nice to stop there and sit on a low boulder – cleared of snow – and soak in the rays that the horses were enjoying!

Do you love that wild face?! Black-as-jet Raven still manages to shine with beauty. 🙂

Killian lagged behind his band because of another band nearby. Here, he’s taking a break from grazing to check on his band, downhill. The other band was uphill. I was on-hill, taking advantage of the gorgeous foreground … and awesome background.

Kwana

Kwana is unperturbed as he grazes.

You’d never know it, but there were two other bands – each with lieutenant stallions – very nearby.

Hollywood's band

In the high desert country, we don’t take water for granted.

This pond was dry until the recent couple of rains swept through.
