Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Young stallion of the Triple B appears to have just come from a fracas; he’s missing a big patch of hide from his neck (other side). It’s that time of year; when the studs that are old enough to leave the family are driven out, forced to find other companions. This fellow will probably join up with other bachelors until he’s able to win a mare — or several – of his own. That usually doesn’t happen until he reaches full maturity, around the age of six or seven years.

Great Basin Life exists … between … high desert expanses and majestic mountain wilderness.

Daily, I watch the winds of change sweeping away what remains of our western culture and heritage, and the land that has produced them.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.

    What a handsome lad though! I’m sure he won’t be alone for long!

  • Thank you, Mrs. Mel. There is plenty of competition for mates. Typically, a stallion won’t find his power until the age of six or later. This boy is probably about three.
