"Wild" horses and potential prospect....*very pic heavy*

Okay, to save typing, the whole story can be seen here. This thread is mainly for the pictures to save folks from having to look through the entire long novel I wrote in the other thread LOL.

This is a herd of horses that has been running feral for many years. I basically have had my pick of them for years but never saw one that drew my eye until now. I was fortunate that they were all up by the tank when I drove out there as there is about 2.5 sections that they run on.

The one I am thinking of as a potential prospect (nothing specific, just a riding horse) is the brown filly with the 3 white stockings, blaze face, belly splash, and blue eye.

This is a part of the bigger herd (there is technically 3 total herds; this one, a smaller band with a stud and a couple of mares, and a bachelor herd). The rest of this herd was over a hill where I couldn't get any good pictures of them.

The brown filly with her mom, the bay. The black/brown that you see in some of the pictures is, I think, the bay mare's previous foal (likely a coming 2 year old)

The blaze face sorrel is the herd stud, you can see where the filly gets her coloring LOL.

Big sister (I think)

Momma...and it may not be as hard to get them caught as I thought. They were more curious than afraid when I got out of the truck. This picture of the mare is not zoomed in at all, she was about 5-6 feet from me at the time. Wouldn't let me come closer but didn't freak whenever I moved either. If the filly has the same temperament, then she might end up a keeper after all.

This one is zoomed in. Filly was more standoff-ish.

She appears to have a slight ewe neck, but once I got her going under saddle and working correctly, you'd likely never notice it.

The last of the pix....

Here was the other 2 fillies that were with this part of the herd. They were really curious and would sneak up really close behind me when I wasn't looking at them.

Anyway, that's all the pictures of that filly and the small section of her herd that hovered around the truck when I stopped. These next ones are of the other 2 small herds that were farther off in the distance.

Bachelor herd of 2 poor studs that can't seem to win any girls

Then the other small herd. The stud is on the left and the mares (perhaps one is still just a filly, 2-3 years old) are on the right

The stud, this horse is actually a chestnut with a very prominent dorsal stripe from countershading. I saw them a lot closer the other day when I was riding.

And the mare and filly, both of whom are also chestnut (just very dark) with dorsal stripes

She's really a decent looking filly. I see the ewe neck too but the important part looks pretty good, decent set of legs underneath her. Considering the questionable breeding practices, not too bad at all. Love that blue eye and the high whites, she's definitely got the chrome!

Soooo, when are you going to catch her? :)

My god that's a pretty little filly:). Have you decided yet?

LOL, I'm not really sure. I guesstimate her age at 3-4 months, would you agree? Probably the earliest round up would be a couple of months from now, latest would end up being next spring sometime.

Thanks, you guys , I thought she was cute...especially considering what she is.

I'd guess her around 4 months, she's pretty good sized - definitely big enough to wean if you wanted to. Poor mama looks like she was caught on foal heat and is baking another one :(

That is entirely possible too. I'm not sure if she's preggo again or if it may just be a combination of many foals over the years (have no idea on her age) and lack of ever seeing a tube of wormer. I sort of hope for the latter.

Omigoodness!! She is stunning. No wonder she caught your eye.
