White beauty

A little dirty, a little dishevelled but still beautiful. White horse in a field – London, UK

The horse has evolved over the past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi-toed creature into the large, single-toed animal of today. Humans began to domesticate horses around 4000 BC, and their domestication is believed to have been widespread by 3000 BC. [photo by glynester]

Wild Pair

Wild pair of mustangs at McCullough Peaks Wild Horse Management Area outside of Cody, Wyoming. I took the wild mustang tour with Ken Martin. Wow! What an amazing experience! We traveled out into the open prairie lands with views of the mountains in the distance and got within 100 yards of a large herd of wild horses. Ken has been watching these horses for 15+ years and knows them all by name and personality. What a treat to see magnificent animals in their natural surroundings — living symbols of the American West.

Now a little known fact . . . The name ‘mustang’ has been derived from the Spanish word ‘mustengo’, meaning ‘ownerless beast’ or ‘stray horse’. These Mustang horses are also called wild horses and are known for their intelligence and independent spirit. [photo by juli-s-pix]
