Lily Eskelsen García at @Netroots_Nation #NN14

I was fortunate to meet Lily when I went to the National Education Association for several years (two decades ago). I also knew her at ISEA events. She is an incredible advocate for children, parents and teachers.  She needs to be the Education Secretary - I don't mind being retired. This resonates with me. Listen to her message. The children and teachers are so lucky to have her voice for them.  Please listen.

Molly on Monday

B G says to say Rabbit Rabbit...

 Molly here,

Just some more pictures.  Lazy today Sunday and Monday.  B G says it is a holiday...what's a holiday?  He spent a lot of time taking care of me because we had rain and thunder and you know I don't like that.
 B G likes this one.. but he needs to have photoshop so he could get rid of the wires, etc...

 He cropped one so it was bigger (of course you could click on them and then they would be on a slide show.
 B G had the mowing done and I still have some flowers in the garden.

 I peek at the neighbors and watch them.
 Then it was really nice and B G had a popcorn party with me.

 He likes my tongue to hang out.. weird...
 Still hanging out in the couch... nice.

 Ms Cassie made B G take a picture of her because it is her birthday.  She was born in 1998 - Sweet 16 ..I shall allow her to sleep on B G's lap for a treat.
Thanks for stopping by - Woof!
 ( B G was looking on a comment that some person put on the blog.  He said to tell people that there is a policy in the First Page of the blog and if he doesn't like your comment he will delete it.  Nobody has to put up with you.  You don't have to read the blog.. B G said something about them and I won't say what he said but he didn't like them..)

For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of he body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
I Corinthians 12:12

O contending peoples and kindreds of the earth! Set your faces towards unity, and the the radiance of its light shine upon you. Gather ye together, and for the sake of God resolve to root out whatever is the source of contention amongst you. Then will the effulgence of the world's great Luminary envelop the whole earth, and its inhabitants become the citizens of one city and the occupants of one and the same throne.
Gleanings from the writings of Baha'ullah 111 

There are many religions back to God, like stepping stones on a path.

People who praise their own faith and belittle the faith of others solve no problems.

The Primal One, the Pure Light, without beginning, without end Throughout all the ages, He is One and the Same.

Let a man overcome anger by love, let him overcome evil by good, let him overcome the greedy by liberality, the liar by truth!

The Stallion and the Foal:
"Spanish Confrontacion" by Jimmy Gelhaar, http://www.JimmyG.us

While photographing in the McCullough Peaks Wild Horse Management Area in April 2008, we came upon one of the most unusual and dramatic situations I've seen since I began documenting the wild horses. My husband and I were told that there was possibly an abandoned foal in the company of a bachelor stallion known as "Chaco. Two of the more plausible reasons why this foal had been abandoned are that a visitor had gotten too close to a new mother who consequently abandoned the foal, or, that the mare foaled very close to the fence line (as seen in the photos) and the foal simply rolled under the fence where the mare was unable to reach it.

In any case, Chaco became this foal's guardian and he took this responsibility very seriously as evidenced when another bachelor stallion, "Chiricahua" came to investigate the pale Palomino-colored youngster. The images depict the longest and most fierce stallion battle I have ever witnessed. Were we about to watch this little foal get caught up in and probably trampled during this stallion confrontation? That was not an image I wanted to capture. (Maybe Chiricahua simply wanted the baby as a prize, like a mare. I don't know that his intentions were to actually hurt the foal, but he certainly gave his all vying for possession). As night fell, we knew we had to leave, but I was sick about it as I felt sure there would be no happy ending for this little baby.

When we returned to the HMA (Herd Management Area) in the morning with Tricia, the Wild Horse Specialist from the Cody BLM, we expected to find that the pretty little foal had not made it through the night (since no mare was nursing this baby). To our amazement, the foal was up and walking and still being tended to by Chaco. As we watched from a distance, Chaco coaxed the little foal until she was finally through a gate. I was told later that Chaco guided that foal all the way down a hill to its mother, Sierra - a mare in Olathe's band. Thanks to Chaco's efforts, the mare and baby (a filly named Little Medicine) are still together and doing well.

Note: I have a long lens, the images have been cropped and, as always, my husband was spotting for me. Please do not get too close to wild horses. During foaling season from March - mid July, it is imperative to keep your distance or a mare may abandon her foal. Please do not interfere or attempt to rescue a wild foal.

My new "Our Wild Horses II" DVD is completely instrumental and features the music of the highly acclaimed, international composer, Bruce Rowland (selections from the much loved "The Man From Snowy River" movie soundtrack and more), Jimmy Gelhaar and Donovan Johnson and Kevin Martinez of, "Prairie Desert Music." This DVD also comes packaged with a small reference booklet with thumbnail images that gives locations and any information known about each of the horses in the 374 photos. There is also another, different video clip posted on the "Our Wild Horses II" DVD page. Complete information and ordering options are at: http://www.NickolesPhotography.com

This video clip is not representative of the image quality of the actual DVD. This is one of 14 songs on the DVD.

As always, my DVD's are created in support of efforts to preserve our living legends - our wild horses.
