And wild horses roam. I saw these horses in a field next to our neighborhood. I stopped and took their picture.

More wild horse pictures

One day, I saw two groups of wild horses, standing in this big field, beside our houses. I stopped my car and walked over to the field to look at all the wonderful horses. There was the group of brown horses, standing on one side of the field. Their brown leader stallion was standing there, watching over them.

The black stallion was the leader of the heard of all colors. His heard was bigger. Every once in a while the black horse would charge over to the brown leader and they would circle each other and snort and stomp their feet and look at each other. Then the black one would move away and stand there and watch the other one.

The horses of all colors, brown, white, and black and cream color, all walked over to the fence to look at me.

These two colts were playing. They would jump and run circles around each other. They were so cute.

The black stallion walked up and looked at me once.

He looked all dusty up close. They all walked away from the fence and went over to the middle of the field. They are so beautiful and wonderful. The BLM are rounding them up. Go here to sign a petiton to stop them from being sold to slaughter houses.

Sign the petition here. I did.

They are so beautiful.

 

Brown horses

A new group of horses came onto my street today. They were all brown. There were 12 of them. Some of them were marked on their hip S4. I don’t know why they were marked. The other groups of horses I have seen were all colors. They just eat grass and sometimes lay down in yards. They walk right by people and do not bother them.

 

Horses calling each other

This morning, I went outside because I was telling my husband that the people next door had bags tied onto their trees.  They have not moved in yet, they ripped up the carpet and rolled it up and put it in the garage. They are putting down a wood floor.

I guess they hung bags in their trees to scare the horses. I then saw 2 horses and two baby horses come around the corner. I ran into my house and got a carrot. They walked by me and the older horses didn’t stop. The two baby horses came over and ate the carrot as I broke off pieces and threw it to them. They they went to join their mothers and walked around the corner.

I didn’t see them but they were making whinny noises to the other group of horses. This big group of horses came around the corner and was calling to the other horses. Then the baby horses come running around the corner, making whinning noises and running to the big group.  They found their family. It was so cute. One ran up and ran in the middle of the group, making lots of noise. They were rubbing noses.

They stopped and ate some grass nextdoor and walked on down the street. I didn’t stay out and watch them anymore today.
