Artist's Description

Little did I know when I created this artwork, that it would become a memorial tribute to the three horses shown, and to the thousands of wild horses being removed from their native homes on the Nevada high desert ranges; even while tens of thousands more languish for years on end, in holding facilities throughout the west and midwest.

This small family group was taken from their native home in early February, 2011, during the infamous
Antelope Complex WHMA wild horse removal project along with more than one thousand others.

The loss of these horses from the American landscape is a tragedy of enormous proportion, and once accomplished, can never be undone.
