    I think it'd be cool to find mustangs grazing in my lawn. Your topic heading made me think of this pic...

    I still find it odd every now and then to walk by a window and just see a herd of horses out on the front lawn...

    Not too many real fences out here. Technically, our property is on 'open range'.

    There are some bands of estray horses that roam the neighborhood. Technically, wild horses are horses on blm land. Horses that nobody owns that hang out on private property and indian lands are 'estray'.

    The lady across the road used to feed them 3 times a day, until another neighbor got fed up and worked with the indians to round them up and take them off to market. I think she said they hauled off about 70 that time. So far I count about 2 bands of horses now with about a dozen horses per band.

    That's some serious firepower!

    It is kind of cool. Just have to keep aware when they are around. They are a little skittish around humans, but they wouldn't think twice about kicking in the head of a foolish little rambunctious labrador retriever

    brent, if I looked out my front window and had that view, forget the horseys, I dont think Id ever get anything done. That is an incredible view, a beautiful picture, the light snow coating, incredible man, just incredible, actually makes me feel good.

    I look out my front window - all I see is houses across the street, squirrels and those bloody crows.

    Every time I go outside and look at the view, I thank god for how fortunate I am for however brief a time I'm able to be here to see it. The wild life we have here is just an extra bonus!

    Now, I just need to get me fat but up the hills in back everyday. My preferred form of exercise, as the view from higher up is even better...

    And people ask me why I left New Jersey to move to Idaho.
