It seems that the personal politics of the mountain is raring its ugly head this year. I try to stay out of it and simply go for the love of the horses and to share them with those that choose to go with me. I’ve witnessed some things on the mountain and experienced first hand some unkind things done that I will not make public, those people know who they are, and if it involves a horse, I will go public and report them, but if it is something done to myself or my belongings, I will not be publicly naming the names of those involved. I forgive the first incident, but I will be watching.
The horses have helped me through many hard times over the last several years, and I owe it to them to stay in a peaceful and loving state when I am with them, and also to try to transfer that to my life when I am off the mountain.
Since 2009, everyone who has been fortunate to see these horses in person, have freely shared them with everyone. Most of us have our watermarks on them, some don’t. I for one, do not care if some wants to use my photos, as long as they do not crop the watermark off. But I have had a few cases of that, and I decided it was that the of image I post would not be big enough for anyone to reproduce for profit. After all, it is for the horses and sharing photos only gets the word out about this special herd, which is good, especially when we need to comment on their management.
Fortunately for all of us, there are still people out there that are willing to share for us all to see. Thank you to those people. I will be very glad when I am up there and can get photos myself, it won’t be long.
