Valentine's Day is about celebrating love, and we need look no further than our magnificent wild horses to appreciate the true meaning of that word. Thank you to the amazing photographer, Kimerlee Curyl
for sharing this beautiful photograph and its story:
We all need someone to lean on. This gorgeous snow white mare, very heavy in foal, I thought she could have that baby any second she was so large and moving slow. The stallion, literally, had just finished chasing off a young group" of bachelors with the success an older, wiser stronger stallion does. He had his work cut out for him, and she really didn’t move a step, other mares in the band kept close to her as he fought with the challenging younger stallions. His battle was won and he returned to her side swiftly, positioned himself perfectly so she could rest her head in the warm afternoon sun. Thankfully, chivalry is not dead.
Your love for wild horses and burros inspires us everyday...Thank you for everything you do!
Happy Valentine's Day!
