A river story

A walk along the Salt River led me to a pack of wild horses. Currently, wild horses survive along the river - their future is in limbo. 

But I watched 'my' pack as their story unfolded. 
It started with a blue heron flying over us.
 I hope you will follow their story as I share it the in the next few days.
 The pack of horses was small - just six horses. The 'old gray', 'red dad', a small 'little guy' (you see him in the back/middle of the photo), a very 'pregnant mare', her 'mate', and at the far right - 'little guy's mom'.

 Pregnant mare with mate - and blue heron flying over.

My hour with the wild horses will continue...

The story is my story - please do NOT think it is the only truth.)

It's great to know these beauties are still around. Let's hope it stays that way (or am I speaking in ignorance of how hard they might have it?).
