March 16, 2008 – Burnt Timber

I spent a lot of time on the 16th looking through a spotting scope at the distant horses in the area where I’d previously seen Two Boots and Duke. I did see them, and they still had the members of Looking Glass’ family. I also saw Tecumseh in the area with his family; it had been a long time since I’d seen them though I’d heard from other people who had seen them later in the summer. Lakota, Baja, and White Cloud were also visible in the area.

As for looking at distant Sykes Ridge horses, I’ve also seen a number of them, like Morning Star, Bolder, Mescalero, and Littlefoot. In about the past month, I’ve actually seen most of of the families – All but about four or five families by my records. I’ve also seen a number of the bachelors.

The only wildlife photograph I really took that day was of some deer. I saw quite a number of them throughout these past days. I also saw some sheep tracks near the flats, though I never got to actually see the sheep.


While on the flats, I also saw something else, which I was not surprised to see. Someone had been on the flats in an SUV and had followed the offroad tracks of those four wheelers. This wouldn’t seem like such an honest mistake if this vehicle hadn’t followed the tracks right over the road closed barrier.

Off roading

The season is bringing in lots of excitement – Interesting interchange, increasing recreation, and I would guess that there will be new foals appearing in the next few weeks. I’ll be gone for the next ten days as well. I apologize for the lack of updates I’ve had in March, but I will be happy to see what I can find when I return to share here.

Also – I’m not purposefully neglecting any unreplied-to comments. I will work on getting answers to them posted and/or sent to posters when I get back. Thanks!

  1. Good to see all the photos of the furry winter horses. Thanks again for doing the work finding them for the rest of us. Wish I lived closer so I could keep tabs on them for myself, but I WILL get there again sometime to once again “feel the magic”.

    Later. Linda D.
