Capture: West Desert, Utah, USA

This is my favorite wild stallion. He is from the Onauqi herd of wild mustangs (Equus ferus) who roam free in the West Desert area of Utah. When I took this picture in August of 2011 he was the leader of the pack and everyone treated him like he was a rock star. He is sexy and he knows it. ;)

    Gorgeous image of this big guy Kelly!!!

  • Thanks Kent. I have a soft spot for Tyson even if he did eat Butterscotch’s ear. ;)
    He’s one of my favorites not just because he is stunning, but because he has such a powerful presence about him. He seems bigger than life to me.

    That is a beautiful horse Kellith! Awesome photo!

  • Thank you very much, Thomas! This mustang stole my heart. He is one of my very favorite. He is the most gorgeous blue color in the sun and I am doing my best to make sure his true color comes through. He also has amazing bleached blond looking highlights at the ends of his mane and tail. He’s simply magnificent. :)
