Enjoying the ride, the scenery, the weather and conversation, however, was completely interrupted when we looked over at the river and saw a band of wild horses I'd been searching for since October, 2013!!!!!!! We couldn't believe our eyes!!! Mary patiently stayed with the horses, while I (and my camera...) made our way down to the sandy/rocky area to try and get the best photos and videos I possibly could!
The amazing band of horses is taken care of by lead stallion, E.T.; second in command is ROBIN. The mares are CHOLLA and BELLA; the beautiful, sweet foal/filly is CHOLLA's daughter, and her name is FREEDOM. Here are a few photos:
I was so excited at having the opportunity to see this band! I'd only caught glimpses of them since FREEDOM was born; being able to spend some time with them and get some close-up shots and videos was the frosting on the proverbial cake.
Here are some links to videos from that day:
When we arrived at the trailer, however, my hubby (who had been patiently waiting for us to return) pointed out a flat tire on Mary's car!! He changed the tire for her while I unsaddled the horses, etc. I can assure you that not even that flat tire put a damper on the sensational day we spent with the wild mustangs! :)
