This is a second image of one of the ambassador stallions, Chief, and his mares shot at Return to Freedom, a wild horse sanctaury, located in Lompoc, California, U.S. This image was shot mid afternoon in May 2009.

Chief is an absolutely handsome and magnifcent stallion! Chief and his mares were running around their living area….they were very wary of us 4 leggeds with cameras! The view of them running around us was a truly beautiful sight to behold….feet were flying, hooves thundering over the ground, manes were flowing, and noses snorting….such beautiful, stunning and captivating freedom of movement!
