We found the first band on the north end of Davis Mountain. There were eleven head. They had split off the ninety head that we have been keeping track of all summer.

Back down on the flats we found about fifty head. The cold wind kept us from having too much fun as we sneaked trough the band. It was so cold they didn't have any interest in fighting.

I don't often see a mare with her ears laid back.

Fifteen miles down the country we found Ol One ear and about fifty head out in the flats. There was a two foot deep gully full of grease wood that they were living off from. Mighty slim picking.

The Old Man himself. Sure was happy to find him again.

Pretty energetic for such a young sprout.

Back in the warm truck we speculated where the twins might be. The were not where we found them last week. We drove up the country and over the ridge, glassed the flats and found five head of dark colored mustangs and two creamellos. Too far away to get to today,, but it made me smile just to know where they are.

Have you seen the crooked legged colt lately? Wondering how he's wintering.

Wonderful, as usual.

I worry about their 'slim pickins'. Will they move on to better forage?
So far they seem to be in pretty good rig...

That one bay colt is pretty young for this time of year, isn't he? :cry:

These are the two. Both right front ankle problems. They don't seem to be limited much. They get around OK.

How's things down on Hall Creek ?

The make a total of three that were born late in the fall. I blame it onto the birth control shots that their mothers were blessed with,, thanks to the Humane Society. But what do I know?

I think you may know more about those mustangs than anyone who goes there hit-and-miss. So I'll take your word for it.... :D

It's dry. We need some storm before long or I'll be gathering out earlier than I'd like. Those colts will make it. Look better than I thought they would. Good to hear from you. Have a good Christmas.
