Red River Gorge

Spent the day hiking in the Red River Gorge with the family. Very wet from the big storm two days ago but still very pretty. The colors in the rocks seemed brighter from the bath but we missed the leaves.

Ky’s free-roaming Horses – Photography

These are a couple shots of free-roaming horses we found over the pass weekend. Both are young mares in pretty good shape. The one has the most unusal blaze face that I have seen and stayed very close to a bay stallion. The cold nights over the past several weeks have their winter coats come on.

Free- roaming Horses – Photography

We had found several small groups of Ky’s free-roaming horses when we first arrived in the area, but had been driving several miles back a dirt road when we found these two. A big bay stallion and a young mare that we had not seen before. On this trip we found about 60-70 horses with most of them new to us.  Google maps show 100’s of miles of dirt paths that lead into this area, most requiring a 4-wheeler.  I feel like we are only seeing the few horses that venture to the edge of the large area as we seldom see the same ones.
