"THROUGH HIS MANE AND TAIL THE HIGH WIND SINGS." - William Shakespeare
The locals call him “Zorro” and he roams free in the Pine Nut mountains in Nevada.
Many moons ago, on a Mother's Day, my husband gifted me with a trip to the mountains to search for wild horses. It became a tradition and now every year we choose a different range to visit on that special day. It was also the beginning of my passion for wild horse photography.
This image was captured during my very first encounter with a wild stallion - an encounter that would change our lives forever.
A PERFECT LANDSCAPE
"Zorro" and his band graze in the Fish Springs range.
The Fish Springs range - part of the Pine Nut mountains of Nevada - is the home of wild stallion "Zorro" and about 100 other wild horses. It is specially beautiful during late Spring, Fall and Winter seasons, when you get the added benefit of enjoying watching the wild ponies with the snow capped mountains in the background.
