I told you I had over 600 pictures but I promise not to post them all. LOL. I believe this is Charm looking down at us. She is such a beauty.
This baby was born just about a week ago now. I think its a colt but don't know for sure. He kept wanting to eat and mom just kept walking off. She finally stopped and let him have his afternoon snack. There will be a lot of babies if the mares remain there very long.

A very stormy sky over the South Steens. It was very beautiful however.

One of the wranglers at the corrals. I think his name is Cody and I think the horse is
Rattler. They were bringing in a mare that was colicing out in the corral. The guys brought her in and gave her a Banamine shot. She seemed better the next day. They left her up by the barns in her own pen. She should foal pretty soon too.

This is a very pretty mare. She obviously is a lead mare and she stomped and snorted us. She really turned and faced everyone who slowed down by her domain. I don't like the look of that one front leg. Maybe it was just the way she was standing. She is a very striking mare. She will be a challenge to someone.

Can I be your friend, huh? Aren't the color patterns different. Some very unusual face markings on some of them.

This is a yearling gelding having a romp. He is a very nice boy.
'We had an inch or so of snow this AM and then it turned to rain so again there is mud when it was beginning to dry up some. Oh well, I guess it is still February. I am so ready to find buttercups blooming. It probably won't happen too soon though.
Last night I had to go to the ER because I was seeing double and kind of odd feeling. It passed though and they did two CT scans and xrays. They found nothing and sent me home about 2 AM. I am tired today but OK. I just think I got too tired. I hate not knowing why something happens though and Bob gets so scared.
So its early to bed tonight and a new day tomorrow. I will post more pictures tomorrow.


  1. Those are beautiful face markings! Keep posting those pics.

    I can't believe you were in the ER. I hope you're feeling better now.

  2. I think you need to take some time and breathe. Sounds like your signal to slow down a bit.

  3. Hope you feel better - and thanks for the lovely pics!

  4. yes and sister says it's time to think instead of just doing what you WANT when you WANT to do it.. Pace yourself and relax. We don't want to find you in a ditch and we want you around to ride horses and play with horses and have fun for many years! Sister loves you!

  5. Wise words Sharon!
    Lovely pics, espescially the one with the 'face markings'. Thnx for sharing them.

  6. I'm glad you got to feeling better but that's not good when they can't tell you why you're sick. Worrisome. Take it easy!

    See you at the meeting tonight!

  7. Great pictures, all of them. But that cowboy - I always wanted to marry a cowboy. After 45 years of marriage I don't think my husband is going to turn into one. :) blessings, marlene
