Mustang mare, colt, and stallion.
The colt (center) has the back stripe typical of the original Spanish herds. Possibly a throw-back…. or NOT.

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.
