The month of May brought us a great Mother's Day show in Prescott and for me a life changing trip to California to photograph the wild horses near the Inyo National Forest in the Mojave Desert. This high elevation herd of approximately 250 horses lives at about 8,000 - 11,000 feet in the summer and lower elevations during during the winter. I was lucky enough to spend 2 days in the middle of a herd of about 200 wild horses which consisted of approximately 20 bands (groups of 8 - 10 horses) in one area and saw but one person during the entire time. This is a remote location and the locals protect it fiercely as they understand that the privacy of the horses is imperative to their survival. I saw lots of young mothers and their babies, young males sparring with each other and they all seemed healthy and unstressed, which is quite honestly, something we don't see too often in nature. This was truly an experience of a lifetime.
