Mustang Photolog by Tamara Gooch. Nice.

As you read this, I am winging my way off to a birthday destination without Internet.  Yippee!  (Yippee to the destination part, not the no Internet part… I’m bringing my computer just in case.)

I have decided to give you photographs to ponder on this lovely Sunday morning.    I know that yesterday was PhoBlog day so I feel kinda badly doing it again.  But, I loved these!  I thought some gorgeous photos would maybe brighten your Sunday as well.

Tamara took these recently of a band of Mustangs.  This is what she does… she photographs wild horses — among other things.  Wow.  How cool is that?!  Here is a link to her website.

I’ve written her comments with each photo.

1)  This image is from the Red Desert last spring. This white stallion was chasing away another stallion that got a little too close to his girls.

2)  Fun and games was all these two colts had on there minds. I am in Cody this evening and going out to photograph the horses in the morning. I haven’t been here since the last roundup so I am anxious to see what I find.

3)  The boys were wild and crazy. Get a few of them together and boy it can’t get much more exciting than that. You just have to make sure you don’t get in their way. It was great, I’ll never get enough of this.

4)  You might call this a meeting of the minds, or the testosterone principle, but either way these boys all had something to prove. It was great to find a bachelor band that was so into each other they hardly new we were there most of the time. Here they all got together to puff up, snort, squeal and stomp, before getting into the more serious stuff.

5)  This cute little buckskin colt was a joy to watch. Fearless. He was super interested in this black yearling and another new filly in his band, but most every time he approached her she’d go running to mom.

6)  This photo is of the “Tres Amiga’s”, as I liked to call them. They were always together no matter what.

7)   Good Afternoon everyone. We had a wonderful morning with the horses. Spent the late morning doing some scouting and found a couple of active bands we’ll try to re-locate this afternoon. A few of the horses found my car to be an excellent scratching post. As you can see by the position of my mirror I had to shoo them away after the mirror was already pushed back as far as it could go and he was still rubbing. Caught them doing a little mutual grooming, one horse scratching ones back, while the other scratched my car. Ah whats a few teeth marks.

I hope you enjoyed these!  If you would like to help the mustangs in their plight, there are many ways.   You can go to the IN DEFENSE OF ANIMALS website to log into the current Mustang campaign.  It should be the first link you see.  (Please feel free to look over all the animal plights listed.)
Don’t forget that little IRON MAN is a wild mustang (even if he is a very tiny wild mustang…) who was rescued and is being nursed back to health.  You can help him through the Bucket Fund.
