|The Joy of Being|
Yesterday the stars aligned and I was lucky enough to be out on the range when our senior Sorraia stallion, Altamiro decided to put on a spectacular show - and I had my camera!
So far none of the other "wild" horses living at Ravensyerie have taken to chasing birds as a form of exercise and enjoyment, but Altamiro, now ten years old, continues to demonstrate his "joy of being" by leaving the herd to go look for adventure among the birds across the preserve. He doesn't always chase birds that happen to be resting or feeding on the open grasslands, but when he does, it is a definite thrill to see. Always makes my day, and I hope it makes yours, too!
I'm sharing some still images I've extracted from the video. The video footage I captured is now up on YouTube here: Just Be
I will also try to embed the video within this journal entry, but if it appears cramped into space and not displaying properly, please click the Just Be link and go to YouTube directly.
