After a trip to the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area and experiencing the thrill of seeing horses in the wild, we realized there may be others who wish to observe unbound Mustangs. So armed with our cameras, binoculars, maps and 4WD we will venture into these wild and rugged places. Within these electronic pages we will share what is out there… Where The Wild Horses Are… living life naturally. Exploring also some of the places they come to be when removed from these management areas.

Another Beautiful Day at Twin Peaks HMA

July 31, 2010 ~ Today's plan was to find Painters Flat as the Ranger had showed us on our map. On our way we stopped at the water toughs to see if the herd we saw the day before was there. They were not there but a beautiful buckskin came over the hill.

We left so he could get a drink out of a small puddle from the troughs overflow which was the only water on this side of the fence. He was upset and paced back and forth at the gate that was closed to the trough.
Cows coming up to find water.

Both are hind legs.
Horse carcass found only 50 feet from roadway just South of Big Spring, on the South East side of Observation Peak. There was also a sheep carcass alongside the road just before this.

 Lots of sheep! (on the way in)
Healthy water full of life. Many small Rainbow trout.
And they share!

Shepherd dog guarding his flock behind him. (on the way out)
On the way back to camp for lunch we saw the White Stallions band on the hillside resting.
The Chestnut and his band  were close by under the Juniper just to the left.
