One last look from the littlest members of the band. 🙂

What an absolute gift to spend time with these mustangs near the top of Green Mountain in Wyoming! Many, many thanks again to Lynn for map, directions and info. Thank you, thank you for sharing these amazing, wild Wyoming mustangs!





The tree

Grey stallion's band on Green Mountain, Wyoming.

Finally, it was nap time for the whole band, but instead of lying down, they congregated under this gorgeous pine tree on the far edge of the meadow from where they’d been when I first saw them. … Oddly enough, the presence of my Jeep, parked nearby (I was not aware that this was their favorite tree in the whole meadow!), didn’t deter them.

This was my cue to take my leave of these gorgeous wild lovelies in their stunning mountain home.

Almost. 🙂





Soooo sleepy

Sweet babies know they’re safe with Daddy patrolling their nap zone.

And not too much later, Daddy himself laid down for a roll and a quick shut-eye. 🙂





Curiosity overcomes

Pretty grey mare in light-grey stallion's band on Green Mountain, Wyoming.

THIS gorgeous girl was like the prettiest little wild Welsh pony mare on the planet. Isn’t she lovely?

P.S. I’m still on sitting on the same rock … 🙂





Daddy dude

Grey stallion with big band on Green Mountain, Wyoming.

Big daddy was OK with me being the subject of his band’s curiosity … but he kept an eye on me, all the same. 🙂

His resemblance to our Comanche was really striking.





Nap time for littles

Grey stallion's band on Green Mountain, Wyoming.

It was the perfect time and temperature for naps, surrounded by mamas and aunties. Keep your eye on the little black beauty with the giant star at far left behind mama …

All eyes on me

Filly in grey stallion's band on Green Mountain, Wyoming.

This little charmer was by far the most curious of the three foals in this band, often grazing her way oh-so-casually into the view of the camera. 🙂 The bay filly in the background might be her big sister; they were often close to the same mare (not pictured).
