Wild horses in America date back to the Spanish Explorers. Add the Indians followed by the U.S. Army and finally pioneers and you have todays Wild or almost Wild Mustangs of the West. Because they live on government land the government spends millions thinning the herds every year. The cattle interests want the grazing rights and the horse lovers think horses arrived first. The French want the horses for meat and most Americans think they are native pets. In any case they are wild and beautiful. Some you can approach and ohters bolt and head over the next hill when they see you. In any case they are fun to photograph.
