Hello Friends & Virtual Travelers!
I have been photographing wild mustangs for about six years now. Mustangs are Wild! I see fights like this once in a while. Some are playful, some are territorial, some are over a filly or mare. This yearling says, “I’m out of here”!
They are familiar with me but I respect their space. Some will give you “The Look” and stand so still you would think they were a statue. They are watching you. I talk to them so they know my voice and I move slowly. They are so beautiful, even when they are beat up from a fight with scars, they still have that wild beauty.
These two are the same mustang’s fighting above but have come down on all fours to settle who’s boss!
Keeping an eye on the rest of the herd.
Young Stud is heading for a drink but looks at me first to make sure it’s safe.
Paint running to catch up with the herd.

Palamino and Mate were feeding along the Virginia Range outside of Dayton. The drought this year is making it difficult for them to find enough food and water.
This Appaloosa looking Mustang is one of the prettiest I’ve seen out near Clark.
Of course they are all beautiful but some just stand out more than others.
I found Micco just standing next to the road and had to pull over to capture his beauty. He was very frisky so I kept my distance. They are wild you know. He has an amazing mane on him!
His mane is so beautiful I decided to name him Blue.
Diamond is still a young filly.
