The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Happy Valentine’s Day!
One of our favorite stories from the range is perfect for a day that celebrates love. Renowned wild horse photographer and friend of AWHC, Kimerlee Curyl tells it best:
“In Wyoming, I came across this gorgeous snow-white mare, very heavy in foal. I thought she could have that baby any second, she was so large and moving slow. A commotion erupted as the stallion attempted to chase off a band of young bachelors that had approached her. The other mares in her herd kept close to her as he fought with the challenging group. He successfully won his battle, and swiftly returned to her side, positioning himself perfectly so she could rest her head on him in the warm afternoon sun.”
Wild horses are very social and family-oriented, and the bonds between individuals are strong. This is why it’s so important to keep them wild, together with their families, where they belong.
Valentine’s Day is all about love — and we appreciate the love you have for our wild horses and burros and all you do to fight for their freedom and their families.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Meredith! May your day be filled with lots of love.
