Lone Wild Horse in Evening Light

While on a scouting trip yesterday evening I came upon a lone horse feeding along the edge of the dunes. While most of the wild horses live in small family groups called “harems,” it’s not unusual for there to be a few animals living a solo life. Sometimes these are young stallions waiting to build their own harem. Other times they’re older or infirm animals living as outcasts. In this instance it is a relatively young and healthy mare named Charleigh. I hope you enjoy these images of this lovely horse in the warm light of the setting sun.
