The monsoon rains have caused the grass to turn green in many areas around Tucson, especially in the low-lying mesquite bosques (dense riparian woodlands of Velvet Mesquite trees) along the Tanque Verde Wash. The mesquite bosque can be seen in the distance behind this horse happily grazing in a green pasture.
As soon as the horses in this pasture saw me, they gave up on the fresh, green grass and came over to me hoping for a treat.
I didn't have anything for them, but they were quite interested in my camera, and they craned their necks over the fence trying to get a closer view of it. One of the horses sniffed the camera and then snorted suspiciously at it (luckily I had closed my lens cap so my lens wasn't sprayed), while another curious horse reached out with wriggling lips trying to put the camera in her mouth (which I didn't allow of course). When I got back into the car, the horses returned to contentedly grazing on the green grass.
