This morning we woke up to a storm warning, high winds and the chill of winter. The termperature has already dropped over ten degrees since lunchtime. Not that we ever really get winter in southern New Mexico, but we like to think we get cold...those of us who have lived in the midwest (Michigan) remember the icy winds and REAL cold and snow, but I'm trying to block that out of my memory!
A few months ago I photographed wild horses near Chama, NM at the Monero Mustang Sanctuary. The sanctuary depends on donations for hay purchases. They really DO get cold near the Colorado/New Mexico border and very deep snow. Sandi Claypool and her group are in need of monetary donations to keep these horses fat and sassy right into spring...
Please keep them and the horses in mind in the days to come. You can view their website and beautiful horses here Monero Mustang Sanctuary ~ they are keeping a part of our culture alive by preserving these magnificent horses.
I also have a gallery of Monero horse photos at My website. All proceeds from sales of prints and photo merchandise go directly to the sanctuary to purchase much needed winter supplies for these horses.
Donating would be a great holiday gift to yourself...kind of makes you feel warm all over.
