For better or for worse the Mustang population has been increasing in many areas of Nevada and across the west. Over the last few years I have seen several herds of Mustangs near my home in Washoe Valley, NV. I found this small band this morning feeding on small bunches of grass growing in between the sage. The horses were practically tame and they almost walked up to me, which makes me think that they are used to getting feed from people.

The hard part of photographing Mustangs is trying to make it so that they don’t look just like any other horse. Framing the horses with the landscape in mind was my goal this morning and I was happy to capture them with Slide Mountain in the background.
