Wild Horse Update, July 7, Part Two

Discussion in 'Other Animals' started by davidwcramer, Jul 7, 2007.

  1. These images are from four small packs that roam the lands around my village of Placitas.

    The red stallion. A big, solid healthy horse with a pack of three mares, a yearling, and a new foal. Here he is with one of the mares and her yearling. The mare is just about to drop another baby.

    The black stallion. He generally has three mares, a couple of yearlings, and a new baby. I say generally, because they often steal mares from one another.

    One of his mares with her foal.

    And here is the foal on her back.

    The white stallion. He also has a few mares, three yearlings, and a new baby. Here he is overlooking my village.

    And here he is with a mare and her foal.

    And here are two of the yearlings (male on left, female on right). The male will most likely be kicked out in the coming year.

    There is one other pack near my home, the bay stallion. He's a young stallion trying to start his own pack. He has one mare with a new baby, and he often adds another mare or two, only to lose them within a few days. This image were posted recently, but to refresh your memory, here he is.

    In Part Three of these posts, I'll show you my new find.
