Yesterday hubby and I drove out to the BLM corrals at Palomino Valley. Did you know that PV is the largest BLM holding facility in the country and will hold up to 2,000 horses? There weren't 2,000 there yesterday. We found out that the BLM roundup starts in July and runs through February to avoid the foaling season. The brands on the horses we saw yesteday looked fairly new and the horses didn't know what carrots were! They were wary of people, but curious. A LOT of bays there...no palominos at all. A few duns and grays, but mostly bays. One little filly nearly made contact with my hand, but not quite! She was very curious, however. It was a gorgeous day out there...thunderheads on the horizon and later that day, when we went up over I-80 at Truckee, we got some rain.
