Artist's Description

The wild horse bands that roam the western United States are a national treasure. They are as important to us and the heritage we espouse as the mighty elk or Buffalo. They are wild and free with a spirit that incorporates all of the elements in nature that humans love. They tend to stay in “families” and can often be seem year after year with the group intact. For the lucky few that are graced with a view of these majestic animals they are stopped in their tracks and mesmerized at the sight.

To see a new “mom” and her foal in this environment was a special moment for me. I am not a horse expert but this “child” must have been only a week or two old and the mom was very protective of him. I thought at first the foal was going to come over toward me as I gently eased my camera to the tripod. But then a soft murmur from mom and the foal tucked back to her side. The Stallion of this little group was standing in the rear and never took his eyes off of me.. A watchful father and a loving mom!.. How wonderful is nature in its simple complexity!.Some thing as simple as this can literally take your breath away and bring a grown man to the edge of tears. I love this nature!.
