West Desert, Utah, USA

Onaqui herd of wild mustangs (Equus ferus).
This was a very hot day in August of 2011 and it was getting late in the afternoon. I had a lot of luck for the first time with momma’s letting me get the closest to their foals than they ever had before. The foals were all very curious and one even sniffed my hand! The little palomino had been frolicking and kicking up his heels all day trying to get his momma and his friends to chase him and play with him. I think by the time I got this shot he was worn out.
