I've been spending some time photographing the Salt River wild horses this Spring and have to say that both have touched me in a way that I have never expected. My days have been spent hiking the river, camping and driving for hours with no luck, and then when I am all packed up and ready to go home, I round a corner and a band of horses appears before me. It's like Christmas...or the grown up version anyway...
If you have ever spent any time with wild horses, I think you would agree that they have a magic about them that makes you want to protect them. There is a beauty and sadness together that is unmistakable.
