Miles and miles of nothing but rolling hills and wind and sagebrush.
Then I looked closely and noticed animals in the far distance. They were horses!! Groups of them. I noticed groups of them off and on as we drove for miles.
Now, who did they belong to? Ranch Boy joked that they were wild horses but I didn't think there were wild horses in Washington or that they would be so close to the freeway (not that they were close....but within sight distance.) Were they someone's herd just wintering on the range? How in the world would you ever round them up? How would you ever know if one was injured? There wasn't a house or ranch to be seen for miles and miles.
I loved it though, seeing those little groups of horses, maybe imagining that I had seen wild Mustangs on the prairie......
P.S. I just started Loretta on a new diet thanks to our knowledge friend over at Brown-Eyed Cowgirls. I will keep you posted on how she is doing in the next week.
