Kentucky’s free-roaming horses

Large group found on ridge top

These are a few more followup shots of our trip to eastern Ky. to see the free-roaming horses. The first photo was taken on an open area on one of the higher ridges. This group totaled about 50-55 horses with 4-5 mules mixed in and had 3-4 foals. The dominate female was a large ( 16+ hands) pinto mare which we had seen several times last year.  The mules appeared to be freshly turned loose, either that or someone decided to cut their manes ( I pulled a few manes last year to get the burr’s out).  Mules are always good for a laugh or two and these did not disappoint.

Something was funny

Pointed up= Attention, Point forward=watch out, Pointed sideways= Mules
