Wednesday, I decided to head up past Sundre to see the wild horses. I went with my grandkids and my daughter Clare. We made an adventure out of it. Packed a lunch and what we thought was everything. Clare packed one for the boys but forgot about the rest of us...lol…The boys were excited to see some wild horses. They watched out the windows to see who would be the first to spot them. When they did they were jumping in their seats yelling “Over there! Over there! Do you see them! Do you see them!”. We found a few and even came across ones that had new foals at their side this was exciting for the boys too.
The weather was not as nice as I would have liked. But, it still turned out to be a nice day with a bit of a chilly wind. The boys sat at the back of the truck, eating their lunch, with a blanket to stay warm. Clare did cartwheels. Now don’t ask me why. But, she figured this would keep her warm and the boys got a laugh out of it.
Ok, the real reason that we went out was I had to try out my new lens, a 100mm - 600mm. I’m still learning how to use this new toy of mine. I managed to get a few pictures of the wild horses. They were out by the road side down though the coulees, up on the hill sides. The mares kept their babies close to them and would not bring them out for anyone to get a closer look. This new lens worked out pretty good. The horses sure looked a little rough for wear, coming out of the winter. Looks like food was scarce for them. The grass still hasn’t really come in so it’s very slim pickings for them.
