On the morning of the 3rd day, I got up around 5:30 again. The best light of the day is between 5:30 -8:30 am in the summer on the mountain. The first horse that I saw was Starman. He was close by.
At the age of 23 he seems to be doing pretty well. He is a little thin, but it does not seem to be stopping him. I saw him several times this trip and most were miles from where I had seen him last. He really gets around. When I saw him in May he was challenging Santa Fe for Judith. You can read about that post by clicking STARMAN I saw him briefly challenge Santa Fe on my first day here this trip.
Since he lost his band (Rosarita and Isadora) in the winter of 2011, he has been a lone almost every time that I have seen him. This trip I saw him briefly with Prince.
I saw another band a short distance away and started walking towards them. It was Morning Star and his band. I have never been this close to Morning Star. Usually I see him from a distance and have never been able to get good photos of him and his band, so this was really exciting!
Kaycee was nearby with her new filly. Jackson’s band had moved on. She waited until her filly woke up and then went to join them.
