These photos were taken the day after the rainbow photos. What a difference a day makes! Under all that glorious snow is a lot of mud. It’s good moisture for the soil, but the slop makes it difficult to get around. Here at the sanctuary, our mustangs are in a few different bands. The horses […]
This blog post and the next feature photos that were taken on consecutive days … and show that Ma Nature is our most influential neighbor here in Disappointment Valley. 🙂 In the photo above, Gideon’s band enjoys grazing in the wet pasture after a morning of rain. A fabulous rainbow finds the horses as “the […]
It’s hard to get mustangs to pose – even when they’re in front of a glorious background. Those are the La Sal Mountains in Utah, and they’re covered with fresh snow from the last snowstorm. The dun mare in the photos is Jif (to clarify, she’s a “peanut-butter dun” – I’m not making that up). […]
The big mare band grazes on top of a hill on the sanctuary, as seen from the rimrocks that rise above the eastern edge of the ranch. In the farther distance are our neighbors’ cattle, grazing a BLM allotment north of the ranch.
Disappointment Valley finally got rain! And to top off that wondrous relief, Mother Nature graced us with the most gorgeous double rainbow. AND Gideon’s band was close at hand to enable the filling of a memory card worth of photos! From left to right: Two Boots, Ember, Smudge, Gideon and Johnnie.

Running around in their herds, full of piss and vinegar, and acting like you’d expect a wild mustang should. Plus all of […]

New baby born this morning in the high desert out at the mustang sanctuary !! Mama came in pregnant almost 8 months ago. This little lady is quite a looker!! The pics don’t show it, but there is quite a ruckus amongst the herd – as everyone seems to want to protect the little filly […]

They were born just before the BLM round up last year. All were reunited at the sanctuary a few months ago. See the pictures below ! True […]
