|This land makes my heart go pitter-patter!|
|She actually made me mad wandering like this..|
Allowing Saige to explore on her own as long as she was within my sights, I angled my way up towards those horses. Whenever the stallion looked like he was about to turn his herd away and down the opposite side of the hill, I'd stop and rest a while in the grass and watch them. I also took the time to root myself. I observed the vegetation, and took pictures to find names of flowers later.
|Ever watchful bay stallion|
Snapping off picture after picture roused Saige and she pointed and chattered about the horses.

|They usually aren't browsers, but when grazing forage is low..|

As we neared the place where we sat with the bay stallion and his band, we came upon them again. They seemed less afraid of us this time and did not move away from the road as we drove passed. I was able to catch some photographs much closer than I have been able to with the limited zoom of my lens. It was a great way to say goodbye as we hit the highway. And indeed, Saige's little voice chanted, "Bye-bye horsies, bye-bye horsies!"
