Hangin’ with the Herd- Wild Horses, Happy Places
Time spent with wild horses, is never wasted time. I make the time to see the Onaqui wild horses of Utah as often as I possibly can. They were my first wild horses, and therefore hold a special place in my heart. Plus, it’s so much fun to catch up on old friends, watch young foals grow up into beautiful adults, and basically just hang with the herd.
Charger is one of my favorite stallions, and he has a beautiful family too.
This mare, Princess, is in Chargers band. This year she had a cute little cremello filly, that I call Cream Puff. She was about a day old in this photo.
This is her 2 weeks later. They grow so fast!
This little colt caught my eye because he was just so happy to be here.
I had to name him Greyson, and he seems to dance to his own tune.
Catching up with the Old Guy is always nice too.
For me, it’s always an artistic journey visiting with the wild horses. I love the personalities, the gestures, and just simply the way they are.
Wild horses and art just go hand in hand. I am always adding new images to my website, Mary Hone Photography.
And through my art I am able to open up dialogue about the wild horses, and all the challenges they are facing right now. If the government has their way, the wild horses will be only a memory in the very near future.
My very favorite thing about visiting the wild horses is the tranquility, the peace, and the whole feel of being near them. I love nothing more than being alone with them, hearing them munch grass, or watching them rest.
I hope you enjoy these videos of Hangin’ with the Herd.
