Grazing Wild Mustang

Grazing Wild Mustang, Monument Valley, Utah
There are many pockets of the United States where you can still see wild horses, mustangs, whatever you want to call them, roaming free — both in the east and out west. This guy was grazing near Monument Valley National Tribal Park in southern Utah.

    Don’t they travel in herds? Was he all alone? I know you love the exotic cats and the lemurs and other non-American types, but I think there is nothing so beautiful as the majestic horse! Beautiful image, Sean.

      Hey Mom, there were quite a few other mustangs strewn about the landscape grazing. It was very late in the day so they were all kind of winding down. Earlier in the day, I saw them running in larger groups, also with several foals and colts.

    The rock formation appears to be two fingers in the peace sign position.
