Returning home from Colorado I saw the wild horses. This time there were as many as 50! My heart just leaps at seeing them. This time they were on the New Mexico side, right across what I would call a Pond at a rest stop.
I'm amazed at how healthy they all look. There were a few babies in the crowd, one of which was still nursing. He looks almost as tall as mom!
I'm so happy they are doing so well. I heard on the news that there is a project to round them up and provide birth control (it sounded like a shot) to keep the herd numbers down. They reported that the population doubles every four years. The Bureau of Land Management holds adoptions. To read more about that click here.
It's times like that that I wish I had a little piece of land.
