It wasn't long after passing the lake and ranch turn-offs that I spotted something moving amongst the desert brush on the left side of the road. HORSES! I pulled over as quickly as I was able to and spent then next 15 minutes or so leap-frogging them, waiting for them to stop moving long enough for me to get some good pictures. When they did stop, though, they were mostly hidden in the brush so I wasn't able to get any real good shots. That's okay, though, because it was great to just have been able to see them. There were two foals who're probably less than 4 months old and one who was 14 to 16 months old. I don't know if I've seen this band before. At first I thought maybe it was the ones I saw where I was able to get pretty close to, but that group had 2 grays and one foal and this group had 1 gray and two foals. hahaha.
Last night we had a storm blow through and it's still raining some this morning and I've heard some thunder. The temperature, though, has been real nice and would've been a good morning to go looking for the horses if it wasn't storming. It's only supposed to be 98 today, which is nice, but I'm sure the humidity will make it gross outside. I hate being hot and sticky. hahaha. But it's the middle of August and I know the super hot temperatures are slowly on their way out and once it cools down I'll probably go hunting more often. We shall see, though, how often I end up going since I always end up disappointed when I don't get to see them and I don't want to take it for granted that I can see them "whenever I want" since I know it's not true.
Have a good Wednesday!
