These Horses, This Place
I’ve been fortunate to visit several wild horse HMA’s in the west. Every area is special, and unique, as are the horses that live there. But my first love, will always be special to me. It seems like a lot of advocates, and photographers have that one HMA that is their very favorite place. Generally, it’s the one they live closest to. It’s the place were they have watched foals grow, kept track of all the different bands, and have favorite horses. We become part of the family.
5 years ago, I first visited these horses, in this place, the Onaqui. We live and travel full time in our RV, but we spend every spring, and fall here because that’s were we come to make the art we sell at shows in summer and winter. So this is definitely my family herd.
Catching up with old friends is always something special. Old Man is definitely a guy I like to see.
This buckskin is one of my favorite stallions, such a handsome guy.
But, really, I just love them all.
Watching them at the water hole, enjoying themselves and the life giving water, never gets old.
The sound and the feel of wild horses, in wild places, touches my very soul.
To see them run with abandon, and feel those thundering hooves in the ground excites all my senses. No matter how many times I’ve experienced it.
Just being their best wild selves.
Sunset. The colors of the landscape come alive.
The horses simply glow in the last light of day.
Wild Horses will forever and always hold a big place in my heart. When I can spend time listening to them eat, breath, and just exist, I’m in my happy place. When I can listen to the wind, and feel it wrap around me, my soul is content. My soul belongs to wild horses, and places.
