WILD HORSES - New Mexico

Pentax K10D with my Bigma

Jicarilla Wild Horse Territory

I originally found them with my binoculars and had to get a little closer to them than I wanted for my background photo. They were down by a creek and I had to get on a ridge to see any part of them.



A close up with the background photo. I was able to stalk closer to the next ridge for the close up shots.



A better look at the close up photo.



Getting ready to cross the creek.



Not to worry MOM I can make it.



TOTALLY WACKY roger

Thanks you Jim. I was pretty lucky on my trip to Reno. I found these on my way to Reno only about 40 miles from my place. I found more in two different places in Nevada probably 100 miles apart.

So lucky to have a country big enough to still have wild areas. Those photos will be valuable in later years to prove what the world once had.

Thanks for posting these - they are cute girls, aren't they? Since I've never seen a wild, free-roaming horse I'm really impressed. And knowing how willing horses are to leave at the slightest thing, it's amazing you got as close as you did.

ntngal thanks for the nice comment and for looking. Hunting Wild Horses is something I really enjoy. I was pretty luck I found these here in New Mexico and then I found some more at two different locations in Nevada.

Very nice series. Do you do all of your stalks on foot Roger? This must be a tremendous exercise program! Whatever the effort, those shots were worth it.
