Yesterday I chaperoned a seventh grade field trip to the Denver Zoo.
Each member of our group was encouraged to choose an animal to visit. I cheated and picked three. The first was the Somali Wild Ass.The second were the Grevy's zebras.
We arrived at feeding time so they weren't interested in posing for photos...
Still, I managed to get a few nice detail shots.
I love the way those stripes wrap around the bottom of the jaw. So cute!
I think this is the droopy little colt featured in last year's zoo post. He's bigger now...but his mane is still a mess!
Of course my third choice was the Mongolian Wild Horses. These are my favorite zoo ponies, largely because I know some of their names. This is the stallion Bartaar...
and this is the venerable boss mare, Bernia.
I believe this dark faced mare is Yisun...
She's very pretty, whoever she is. I love her zig zag mane!
I don't always enjoy middle school field trips, but this one was fun. So glad I went!
