Beautiful, Wild and Free
Today couldn't have been a more perfect day.
The weather gifted us with temperatures in the 70's, beckoning us to come out and play.
Justin, Sasha and I were happy to take a drive and bask in the change of scenery that lay ahead.
We decided to take a drive up to Indian Springs where we knew the wild horses roamed.
We've been to this area many times before but we have never been lucky enough to glimpse the beauty of the wild horses until today.
Yes, today was our lucky day.
It was an amazing sight to see and I was in awe.
Of course, it wasn't anything like what you see in the movies where the wild horses are running as fast as they can, their manes flowing backward against the wind, muscles bulging powerfully as their legs carry them at full speed.
No, it wasn't quite that dramatic but still, it was awesome.
The horses are travelling to a higher level where there's a creek.
It was fascinating to watch them because even though they weren't running,
it was amazing to see how quickly they get from one area to another.
This little baby horse was a fiesty one. He was very curious about Sasha.
I think he mistook her for a coyote or something because at one point the baby made a movement as if he was going to stomp his feet on her.
The little white baby in the background never took his eyes off of me.
We were able to get pretty close to the horses.
Apparently, someone has been dropping hay off for them to eat and so even though they were a little sketchy around us, they still didn't run away.
I edited this photo and I really love it.
This is on higher ground where there's a creek and a spring.
Here's your sign!
Just in case you were wondering where we were today.
I hope you enjoyed the beautiful, wild and free horses that I captured for you today.
