Beautiful mustangs, and great photos capturing them:)
Thank you Inger. 🙂
stunning creatures & photos!
Thank you for visiting and commenting Cindy! 🙂
Can totally relate to the hard work getting those shots – but very rewarding as they are great!
Yes I felt the stakes were pretty high and exercised caution in my approach. Thanks a lot. 🙂
Thanks Barbara. 🙂
Great shots. They seem to be excited to have their first photo shoot 🙂
They were excited but I think they get photographed quite a bit. Thanks for stopping in and commenting. 🙂
What beautiful horses indeed. Lovely pictures, and lucky you for finding them!
Thank you. Yes I felt very fortunate to be among them. 🙂
I had heard of the Kiger mustangs but didn’t know much about them. Just finished reading a quick summary on Wikipedia and was intrigued to find out that they are the main remaining descendants of the original 14th century Spanish horses but weren’t discovered in the West until 1977. I suspected that they were somewhat insular from the common coat coloring and markings, but had no idea they went back that far! Nice photos–thanks for posting!
Thanks Alli. They are interesting and beautiful. It is incredible that they were able to stay isolated for so long and preserve the bloodline. Glad you like the photos. 🙂
Wow, those are some fantastic shots! The horses are so beautiful and majestic- almost as if they wanted you to photograph them. 🙂 Well done.
Thanks so much ponymad! They really are some of the prettiest horses I have ever seen. Very photogenic. 🙂
They really are gorgeous, great color and conformation. Glad you were safe in their presence and not trampled over.
Ha ha, not much chance of being trampled but certainly a good chance of missing the opportunity to get good close photos. Thanks for stopping in and commenting. 🙂
The Kiger Mustangs are very beautiful, and your portrait of them are exquisite .
Thank you Maria, they really are special horses and it is hard to take a bad photo of them. 🙂
I find it very interesting that they are all pretty much the same color. Truly wild – back to thier roots. Looking at them seethes such primal expression, truly delightful.
Thanks so much. Yes they were wonderful to watch and the uniformity of color is something that you don’t see in the feral horse bands.
You are welcome, it actually gave me an idea for a post on my blog as well.
Absolutely stunning series and what a beautiful subject! Perfect as usual!
Thanks for visiting and leaving such a kind comment Cynthia. Happy you liked the Kiger’s. 🙂
