  1. Pam , Your photos are not only beautiful but extremely hard to capture…which even with a ZOOM lens, getting close to these beautiful horses ISN”T EASY! I thank you for sharing your beautiful photography and am proud to post! xoxoxtatiana

    Did someone say wild horses are starving???? He’s a handsome powerful hunk, and from the looks of it, never misses a meal! Here’s to wild and wonderful!

    How strange none of your pictures ever show any horses that are the least bit thin or sickly!!
    Loved the pictures of the roan colt – what a gorgeous boy.
    Hope hes still free out there.
    The sheer number of roundups is scary. Nothing seems to cause the BLM to back off.
    Do you think anything is actually going to come of Madeleine Pickens sanctuary???
    Do so appreciate your pictures & commentary.

    Thanks so much Tatiana. Your support means a lot to me. 🙂

    Thank you John. I appreciate your comment.

    And thank you Arlene. I hope he gets to stay in Salt Wells and manages to avoid capture.

    To wild and wonderful! Thanks Janet! 🙂

    Hi Maggie – in all honesty, if I saw a thin or sick horse, I would be the first one to say something. In the 6 years I’ve been photographing the wild horses, other than stallions during peak breeding season, an older or obviously sick horse, I’ve found only healthy, well-fed horses. And yes, I believe in Madeleine’s sanctuary and her efforts and think it will become a reality for some of our horses in holding. It’s not the total solution of course, but it’s not an easy situation to resolve. It will take many different thoughts and ideas but I know it could happen if the government would just consider the input.

    He is a massive boy does not look like he is starving . The wild horses look a lot better then the one’s some people have. Adopting is not bad.,But what happens when they get to there new homes people think it is so easy to break horses. Am a kind one and have patience. What about the one’s that don’t and there are a lot out there. then what happens to the horses. I see people all the time trying to do something nice and what a great thing to do . But them realize OMG what did i do. They stop trying most not all , I have had horse all my life and it is a hard job but i love it . the government is so wrong to do this As from your pictures everyone can see they look well lots of muscle and weight. Ride by some farm look at some of horses all you see is ribs because lack of nourishment and working out. I feel they should leave them alone and let mother nature do her job. And on another note is there going to be anything beautiful to see wild anymore. Well to the ones that do go I wish them homes with people who will make them apart of there herd and give them the right treatment and do not break there spirits .
