I have always had a love for animals, but there’s something about wild horses that makes my soul soar. The telling curve of their ears. Inquisitive eyes. The contouring lines of their brawny stature; a beauty so intriguing it leaves me longing for more.
I have found heaven on Earth in the Pryor Mountains of Montana. My senses dilate on the mountain top meadows. The smell of Limber Pines. Mountain top rainbows after a summer rain. The splashing fun of the waterhole on a hot summer day. New born foals nap and romp in the soft cushion of Lupine. The sound of thundering hooves as battling stallions scream with fierce intimidation.
