Shady Spot

Little "Spot" was orphaned shortly after being welcomed to this world. He was adopted by a trusty 30-something gelding named Bud who showed him the ropes of being a horse. And he was handfed by his proud owners, Doug and Ruth Ann Wood, at the DRW Ranch in Castle Rock, Colorado. I caught him shading himself on a bright early spring day under this spreading oak tree.
