This is my last post about the Salt river wild horses until next winter. To say I was sad to leave this wonderful area is an understatement. Between the horses, the birds, and just the general beauty of the area, I was enthralled to say the least. I miss it already. We met new friends, spent time with old friends, and had a great time on every visit there.
I knew we were down to the wire on leaving this last trip, and I really wanted to capture the horses in the river in the evening. So on our last evening there, we met our new friends at the river and had a magical time. The light is amazing in Arizona at sunset anyway, add to that a river, and horses….well you get the idea.
Oh, and the reflections. Not just in the river, but the river on the horses.
I was obsessed with the reflections on the horses, so amazing.
Wild foals like to play too, and it’s one of my favorite things to watch. Once they get a little bit older, and feel more comfortable being away from mom, not too far mind you, the foals in a band like to run around and play with each other, especially those that are close in age.
These two fillies are besties, and so dang cute. I showed you photos of Little Miss Cutie in previous posts. The first time we saw her was in December and it’s crazy how fast she has grown. On one of my last days with the Salt River horses I watched these two running and having so much fun.
The Salt River horses are lucky, in that they have a beautiful river to call home. Ample water and a place to cool down on hot days, it’s a big part of their lives.
This little filly was only a couple of days old, I showed you photos of her in this post, when she made her first river trip. We just happened to be at the river one afternoon when we saw her little band near the rivers edge.
