    First three are my mare. The last one is my gelding and it was only his 4th ride or so. I thought it was funny how relaxed and low his head was. lol

    What do they eat?? I don't see grass and assume they can't eat that sage???
    Are their snakes?? Is it hot and dry as it appears??
    Give me lush green grass up to the belly of a horse and no snakes

    I have a few of various horses. None of them are recent just because I don't currently have a smart phone. Some trail rides I would take the small digital and use that though!

    They eat grass! The grass on the desert isn't obvious when you look across the landscape, you have to look down on it. It grows in small bunches rather than individual blades and mostly grows under the sagebrush. That is why it takes 15 acres to run a pair ;) It only grows a couple inches tall, except the rye and crested wheat grasses, rye can grow a couple of feet tall, crested wheat maybe a foot. But the cows prefer that shorter softer feed. They will eat the taller tougher grass when they are out of the soft, short grasses or we will winter dry cows on those tall tough feeds with a liquid supplement.
    Cows and horses can eat sagebrush and survive on it, but they have to be pretty hungry to eat it.

    We do have snakes, mostly Bull snakes which are not poisonous. In the years that we have worked on this ranch I have seen very few Rattlesnakes. Last spring I had to go onto the neighbors to get some of our cows and as soon as I went through the gate I seen four Rattlesnakes. I am terrified of snakes but one thing I will say is that at least you can hear rattlers! When I lived in Texas I was so paranoid of the snakes there because I couldn't hear them. LOL!

    We are in a drought right now and it is scary dry and warm. In a normal year the snow would now start thawing but we have no snow, it has barely froze during the nights and we have been in 60's and 70's(F) during the days. It feels like June right now instead of March/April. We are hoping for a wet spring.

    Living out here is not for everybody. I prefer it over living in the trees or in town.
    It's not that bad...

    It's scarey dry and warm here as well in central Washington.... I'm just hoping for rain... it's been in the 50's and upwards for a month... fire season is seriously going to be bad, methinks. The grass in the sagebrush areas is already high... hoping for the best this year!

    This is for LJY. Just be aware, lol, that the pictures I've posted are from the east side of the mountains.. so, put a gray sky to them if you're thinking about Seattle. :)

    ~Reviving this thread because the subject is just as valid as ever -fuss if you want- :p I was going to make one but saw one existed.~
    I love to see everyone's between the ears riding pics and the unique views of what you all see!
    Finally got to go out on a trail/road ride the other day when it actually wasn't raining for once :cautious: First time out with Gunnar alone off our property, he was pretty great, can't wait to hit the trails with friends when I get my trailer home! KIMG3353.JPG

    Lol, I had forgotten about this thread, nice to see it again.

    This is my cheat one, getting a glimpse of the view from the safety of the mounting block, the day before my knee replacement.
