Satisfying another basic need. Note the Jeep tracks in the sand behind the horse - somebody had been through this puddle earlier in the day.

I like this picture of the horse's attitude while drinking. It's an appealing picture. I hope the jeep didn't damage the area.

@Don: There are many rutted jeep trails through the refuge, with pockets of developed lots with million-dollar mansions on them. And there are large swaths of completely untouched dune and woods available only to hikers and wildlife.

Such a tranquil moment that you've captured as if you've come upon this horse in the wild. But then I did note the tracks in the sand and though, "This isn't exactly a remote place."

They have all they need for a good life, with having us telling them how to live.

Il est beau ce cheval et j'aime bien ce cadrage avec cet arc de cercle du plan d'eau avec un côté dentelé comme sculpté par le passage des roues.
