The wind was ruffling their manes and tails and forelocks, but they – Hayden, indeed – were completely unruffled by our presence.
Hayden is not pictured in this lineup because he had started walking up the road to where I had stopped the Jeep.
From left: Tenaz (almost 3), Apollo (almost 2), Killian (!) (almost 2) and Aspen (probably 11+).
A couple of visits ago, Killian was not with mama Roja and her band (Storm’s band, which includes Gaia and her daughter, Cassidy Rain). I hoped he hooked up with the bachelor boys; he did! Aren’t they the picture of innocence in the pic above? Killian appears to be an “off” shade of bay because he will turn grey, like his sire, Seven.
And, because I can’t leave him out, and because he was posing so handsomely for my friend Nancy, who was lying on the ground to photograph him, Mister Hayden:
Love, love, love his heart-star. From the cutest baby to quite a handsome young mister, this Grey/Traveler son is filling out very well.
As you can tell, it was a pretty windy day. Rain is in the forecast; all dances, finger- and toe-crossing welcome!
Our friend Ann also was with us for a visit to the horses. We saw Shadow and her baby girl (and Seven and Puzzle) but from a very great distance.
I also want to give a shout to friends Sue and Roy, who also were visiting the horses. Roy was the first to spot last year’s first foal of the year AND named her: Mariah. What a gorgeous girl she is growing up to be.
