Greetings From The Desert! • • 📷 Photo captured August 6, 2021 • • It’s been amazing to see all the green growth since the recent monsoon rains (and yes, we’d still love more rain, please!) • • Yesterday I encountered this band, grazing their way through a desert area that’s farther from the river. • • The wilds know where to find forage when it’s available, and contrary to some local folklore, the wilds clearly don’t reject Mother Nature’s bounty “once they’ve tasted alfalfa hay”. • • Without the supplemental hay feeding provided by @srwhmg for the past year (with the approval of the AZDA) — funded by public donations and carried out by kind-hearted volunteers — some of the horses might not have made it through our historic drought. • • And while we’ve had some encouraging rains in past weeks, we have no guarantee they’ll continue. Monsoon seasons are unpredictable. • • But for now, we can take joy in the sight of our beloved wilds grazing this monsoon’s green gifts, and hope that Mother Nature will continue to be kind to the Tonto. • • Hope this postcard finds you and your loved ones safe and well. ❤️🐴🌱🌧😷
