After a trip to the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area and experiencing the thrill of seeing horses in the wild, we realized there may be others who wish to observe unbound Mustangs. So armed with our cameras, binoculars, maps and 4WD we will venture into these wild and rugged places. Within these electronic pages we will share what is out there… Where The Wild Horses Are… living life naturally. Exploring also some of the places they come to be when removed from these management areas.

The posts contain many photos, click on them to enlarge for more clarity, but please do not copy or reproduce without permission. email us. Thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoy the trip!

Bay Stallion and Mule from Painters Flat

The coolest thing ever, when we got home Saturday night I found the following email in my inbox! It is from Linda Hay and she has been watching and photographing the wild horses at Twin Peaks for the last 30 years with her family. I am so honored she chose to share some of her pictures with us.


"Hello..I met you today...(wildhorse roundup) and I have looking at your have done a wonderful job...I laughed when I saw your pictures of the mule and the stallion....I bet this is the same guys.  We found them winter of the southwestern part of Painters Flat...I am so sure this is the same group...
I enjoyed visiting with you.
