Jicarilla Wild Horses

I was on a ranch road short cut to get back into the forest when I spotted these guys & gals. I looked like they were grazing towards the road so I went up a ridge and parked by the fence to wait. I got lucky about 1 1/2 cups of coffee later they showed up. I made a note to go back in the early spring cuz it looks like some babies are on the way.

I was surprised they got this close to the ranchers fence.



With a close up



Enjoy

I agree with Tim. Very nice. They certainly seem tame for being wild ones. And, looks like there are definitely some little ones on the way.

I was surprised they were so calm normally they are off and running as soon as anything gets around them. I have spent many days never getting close enough to get a picture.
