Demure

As anyone who has been to Graduate School can attest, the Grad life is a busy one! I’d love to be able to post a weekly blog post, but to keep these posts more on the manageable side I thought I’d throw in some short horse profiles. I know lots of people have done profiles on the horses, so I will likely focus on my own experiences with these individual horses.

Of course, even just choosing one horse to focus on is tough! I picked Demure to start, because I’ve always found myself drawn to her. Not to mention, she seems to love to pose for me!

Demure was one of the first horses I “met” on my initial trip up the mountain. I was thrilled-and took tons of photos of her-wondering if I would get another chance to photograph her. As it turns out, that wasn’t a problem! But no harm done-I love those early photos.

Demure may not be “flashy,” but I think she is a stunning mare.

Demure’s has been in Horizon’s band since Spring 2015. This year I noticed her showing preference towards satellite stallion Fiesta, much to Horizon’s chagrin!¬†Demure seems to really like Fiesta, and I found myself hoping the two of them could pair off. However, Fiesta did not appear interested in creating a disruption in the group.

Demure only has one living offspring on the mountain. Though he started off on the small side, Mandan is growing into an impressive colt, and I have high hopes¬†for him as Demure, and Santa Fe’s, only wild offspring.
