On a scorching, hot day two summers past, we came to our senses and put aside the usual farm chores, hopped in the truck heading south towards the Porcupine Hills. The scenery can be breathtaking in its own stark way. Not much in the way of trees but the beauty of the rolling hills and distant ranches make up for the lack of foliage. I got out of the truck to set up my camera to take in the undulating landscape spread out before the mountains when these two local busy bodies trotted up to the fence to check us out. I’m sure that in this remote landscape we were the only excitement they’d seen for days. In true equine fashion they scoped us out and decided that we were definitely worth getting a closer look at, for sure!
