Some photos from what should have been a fun trip.
The welcoming committee - "Moo!"
The boys settling in to their corral.
Ready for a blue moon ride:
Lovely, but I barely got to see it:
This was a pretty dawn picture but the colors just didn't come out well here:
I zoomed in on the above picture, and you can see the spot (but not the actual incident) where Tonka got hung in the fence the next morning, to the right of the black horse's butt. You might have to click to enlarge. The green gate there. His right front was stuck at the top, head was to the left, and all four feet in the air next to the gate, and kicking through the gate when he struggled, which thankfully he didn't do much. Horriffic. I'm so glad I'm starting to get some distance from the actual incident, and seeing my horse doing so well helps ease the horror.
Scout, being cute in the dawn light:
He still has such a babyish expression.
Blue, looking like a disreputable character. The dogs had a blast.
This was Tonka yesterday, head hanging in misery.
Doesn't look like much, does it?
It does look crooked, partially because of bad camera angle, but partially because he has crooked legs. It's not part of the injury. He has other scrapes and a small cut, but nothing major.
This is Tonka this morning, head hanging only because he is eating. He is much more perky, but still not quite himself. And there's his wonderful poop! I can't tell you how happy I was to see that.
This beautiful flower sprang forth from a pile of crap, all by itself with no help from me. Isn't the color just amazing? Isn't life just amazing?
