Friends who have been battling a series of really bad fires that forced evacuations from homes in central Colorado — near Westcliffe, Colorado — have been sending me pictures of what has been going on as I have some land in the Rockies near them.
The picture above is of a beautiful, young, wild Arabian horse that is just hanging out in a meadow next to and around my property. I’m guessing it was displaced in the fires.
I don’t know horses at all — but this one looks to me like quite a great creature. I hope she does well and continues to like our neighborhood.
