"I have always had a passion for both photography
and wildlife since grade school. These pictures were taken during a recent
trip to South Dakota. The wild mustangs in these photographs -Mesteno-
as the Spanish called them, were taken on a 13,000 acre sanctuary in Hot
Springs, South Dakota. I recently learned that in the year 1900, more
than 2 million wilde horses roamed the west. As of 2004, less than 32,000
remain; they have been hunted for sport or hunted and sold for human consumption
in the U.S. and the foreign market. Twenty-two thousand wild horses are
now in government holding pens awaiting their fates. This is why wild
horse sanctuaries are important.
Donations from the sales of these pictures will be sent to The Wild Mustang Sanctuary, Hot Springs, South Dakota.
