Brave Sir Ziggy -or- Bay Is More Than Just Okay

Once upon a time there was a beautiful Mustang named Brave Sir Ziggy. Brave Sir Ziggy was loved and adored for his kindly ways and his rock solid courage. You see, he was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways. Oh Brave Sir Ziggy!* One day Brave Sir Ziggy was steadfastly watching for potential enemiesContinue reading “Brave Sir Ziggy -or- Bay Is More Than Just Okay”

See Flax. See Flax Run. See Flax Go Down Like a Box of Rocks.

This is Flax. Handsome fella, isn’t he? And this is Fermat and his colorful group of ladies. Fermat is the dark bay all the way to the right. His lead mare Taylor (the strawberry roan in front) has been pretty skittish post-roundup, so I was a ridge over when I took these. It’s not idealContinue reading “See Flax. See Flax Run.

Life apparently has other plans. This weekend a foal was euthanized (read: shot) at Sand Wash Basin. Think that’s upsetting? Read on.Continue reading “Some Stewards…”

Young Love in the Springtime Air, or, Could Voodoo and Streaker Be More Adorable?

Stop the presses, Streaker had her baby! Streaker, you see, it absolutely adorable. Put a baby at her side, and now we have a giant bundle of cute intense enough to start a nuclear reaction that unleashes a wave of flowers and cotton candy.

Mighty Tripod

What a fabulous weekend in Sand Wash Basin! None of my photographs came out very well, but I was having too much fun to bring myself to care. But where my camera skills failed, the memories remain. So I am going to share the horses stories with you. I thought about going in chronological order, butContinue reading “Mighty Tripod”
