A fun few images for #WildHorseWednesday.
We were watching a small band of #horses at Sand Wash Basin as they drank from a watering hole. Along came a second stallion, apparently intent on trying to steal away a mare or two. The lead stallion was having no part of that and headed out to meet the challenger on the field of battle.
Heads down, they pounded the ground with their hooves. Wasting no time, the leader turned around and delivered a solid hit to the challenger, lifting it off its front legs and sending it back.
Realizing it wasn’t up to the task, the challenger gave up and the two combatants bowed their heads as if to honor each other’s efforts in battle. A pretty impressive scene and a showcase of the power of these amazing animals.
