August 7th, 2014

The morning of the 7th found most of the horses down in the meadow across from the Little Ice Cave road.  There were a few new bands here that I didn’t get to see the night before very close. Boulder and Hernando are the two that come to mind, plus some bachelors.

For the most part it was peaceful, but as we wandered through the trees checking groups out we would hear commotion now and then.  When we got back tot he area that the bachelors were in, we found that it was them disturbing the quiet.  Lobo was at the center of it.  There was some minor jousing with Mica.  Jasper stepped in, and of course the action had to happen in the trees so that you could tell what was going on but not get pictures of it.

They did move into the opening eventually, and we saw some minor skirmishes with them.

The majority of the sparring took place between Lobo and Moorcroft.  I pulled my favorite shots out of the encounters to share.

  1. Thanks, Shawn! Fun shots of the boys sparring 🙂 But the Killian drama is getting really, REALLY bizarre.

    Is Lobo a bachelor now or was he just hanging out with the boys for a while?

  2. I think we will see Lobo become a bachelor soon. I think probably because he’ll want to. I also think that with the drama Bolder has found himself in with Echo, he’ll send Lobo packing soon. I’m surprised he hasn’t become aggressive towards him yet. Maybe he has and we just haven’t seen it. But I think Lobo will also want to leave and enjoy being a bachelor, unlike Echo who would rather stick around.
