Ky’s free-roaming Horses – Photography

These are a couple shots of free-roaming horses we found over the pass weekend. Both are young mares in pretty good shape. The one has the most unusal blaze face that I have seen and stayed very close to a bay stallion. The cold nights over the past several weeks have their winter coats come on.

Free- roaming Horses – Photography

We had found several small groups of Ky’s free-roaming horses when we first arrived in the area, but had been driving several miles back a dirt road when we found these two. A big bay stallion and a young mare that we had not seen before. On this trip we found about 60-70 horses with most of them new to us.  Google maps show 100’s of miles of dirt paths that lead into this area, most requiring a 4-wheeler.  I feel like we are only seeing the few horses that venture to the edge of the large area as we seldom see the same ones.
