Rachel Carson Reserve Horses

While visiting the reserve the morning before Christmas I made a few photographs of a stallion and his one mare. At the moment the herd is broken up into individual bands called harems. The harems consist of a stallion and a mare or two or three. There also may be a bachlor band around which would be made up of stallions that haven’t “collected” any mares. With the herd split into smaller groups it can make locating horses to photograph a little more challenging. Here’s a few shots from the morning.
