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.

    • The only protection that I know of…. The local people seem to keep an eye out for them…. but I wonder if some of the horses are taken and sold, as we go back looking for some of the young ones that my Grandkids like and seldom find them. We watched a truck pulling a horse trailer on one trip, when ask they claimed they where looking for a mare that had ran off from a local farm?????
