Alert, yet quiet family in the Piceance-East Douglas HMA in Colorado. To me, it’s always a successful visit if the horses don’t feel pressure to run away. Even better when they eventually ignore me enough to observe their normal behavior. It’s truly a gift to be amongst the wild ones and share their beautiful territory. 11/2016

    And your pictures are a gift, Pam. Better than seeing them chased & rounded up & penned up! Thank you

    Beautiful photo Pam. In May of 2015 my husband and I visited the Salt River horses in the Tonto National Forest, AZ.All 3 days we were there we saw wild horses engaging in natural behavior without fear or anxiety. Horse families quietly munching by the river, 2 stallions engaging in a short fight in the river and 3 bachelor stallions cooling off in the river right in front of us. It was incredibly special to witness these beautiful scenes. It was a highlight of my life.

    That’s awesome Nanette. The wild horses are amazing to see in person. I went to Salt River several years ago, saw no horses, but got caught in quite the hail storm! Still a good time due to the people I was with. 🙂
