CAMERA CRITTERS

Today we drove from Yellowstone National Park to The Grand Teton National Park.  After dropping off our bags at the hotel we went for a ride to explore the surrounding area, and came across these beautiful horses.  
  

Four young ladies had gotten out of a car at the parking spot we stopped at, and we noticed that a horse was following the girls as they walked along the fence, actually trying to touch them gently with his nose.  At first just one horse, and then another joined him.  





A very interesting thing happened after the girls left.  They started to play, running at a fast trot and kicking their heels at each other briefly, and then this.


After nuzzling each other for a minute or so....



they walked slowly back to their herd.

Try a trail ride while you are enjoying this country. I love riding, even an easy one.

The horses are beautiful, Denise! What a nice story. The horse must have thought he/she knew the girls. Awesome photos. I loved the Tetons! Have a great day!
