I will never forget the moments I shared with this baby horse and his mother. It was a gloomy day on a lonely highway in Colorado, on my way to Great Sand Dunes National Park, I think. On my right I saw a ranch full of horses grazing out in a field. I slowed down, parked on the shoulder and decided to see if I could photograph a few of them from afar. After about 15 minutes, a family of horses slowly started walking toward me. It took them another 10-15 minutes, but they eventually came right up to the barbed wire fence separating them from the highway. The little colt stuck right by his mother the entire time, except for when I took this photo. For some reason he lagged behind her a few feet, then trotted back to her side. Luckily I was able to capture this photo of him catching back up with his mom.
