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!

Reservoir at Painters Flat

Reservoir at Painters Flat
The reservoir was full, the grass tall, flowers were blooming, birds were singing and we were excited to see some horses come in for a drink.

Water Buttercups
Looking out across the flat with our binoculars and lenses we guesstimated there were only 75-100 head of cattle but we could only see one dark horse. 

One Lone Horse
We could see him off in the distance coming toward the water hole, and he was limping, so we quickly moved further away from the water to be sure he would feel safe enough to get his drink.

  1. Does anyone know the status of the bay horse in the video? Did any organization tend to his medical needs or is he dead by now? It is obvious he was not going to be able to travel far with prey in the area and a wounded, possibly broken bone. I wish I was in a better place to help these animals. Horses saved my life as a child and I cannot do anything for them, except cry for their obvious pain and loss.
