    1. Haha! I had you in mind when I posted that bunny. The rabbit scene is going bonkers around here! Never seen anything like it. I keep wondering where the coyotes are and the Owls and...
      These horses came out of nowhere! They are new to me even though this is our main viewing road at the base of Green Mountain. The stallion has the most unique colored head! My pictures don't capture the true beauty of him.
      Happy New Year, Bernard.

  2. I'm wondering what herd those horses are, too! Gorgeous dark charcoal ones in there. Love all of it. Hope you're staying warm.

    1. Those black and charcoal boys are a new band...another new band!
      I'm hoping Chad will Flickr the boy with the distinct face design.
      There was one pretty grey horse with them, you would have loved him! His head is cut off on that picture above... ;( Dang it.
      It's so cold here.
      I'll be in the Nevada desert tomorrow, tho. I'm not bringing anything with wool in it! Lol
      Thanks for stopping by, Diana.

  3. just wonderful-- the perfect blend of wanting to stay in and wanting to go out, with good reasons for both!! I, too, was smitten with the dark horses. perhaps it's their lovely contrast with the snow. all of the critters look like they enjoyed your holiday with them. I know I did!!

    1. Oh yeah. Thankful for wood Stoves!
      It was very cold in the Big Horn Mountains but the sun was bright and warm when we hiked the creek.
      Made my day when mama moose and babe posed for us!
      Casper has piles upon piles of snow whereas the mountains had little. We brought snowshoes but couldn't use them. They always look good propped up against a woodpile tho. :)
      Dark beauties against white. Magical winter photo op.

    1. Beautiful you. My kind hearted sister of Prairie Hill.
      Hold all wild horses in your heart, won't you?

  6. The photos are stunning...I am certain that it is wickedly cold and maybe not as easy to appreciate all of it but when you sit back by the fire the beauty must emerge in full force...the animals look so much prettier when they are fluffy in the cold weather...happy 2016 xo

    1. For certain. Cold!
      But, I have to remind myself (daily) that if I want to be around the wildest of the wild animals, I have to put up with winter.
      That's all there is to it.
      I would simply die without wildlife around me.
      Thank you as always for the reminders and nudges you send my way.
