A beautiful horse in beautiful country for #WildHorseWednesday.
Going back to last May and my wife and mine’s impromptu trip to the Sand Wash Basin Herd Management Area. We spend two days on the dusty, windswept terrain, admiring these magnificent animals and left wanting even more time.
The horses are believed to have been around since Spanish explorers, possibly including Francisco de Coronado, left them behind or lost them during their expeditions in the mid to late 1500s. The horses have thrived on the dry, high desert in the centuries since and Sand Wash Basin has as many as 700 of them today.
