↠ I crossed the Nevada border into the high desert plain north of Bishop, California. That’s when I saw them. This little family band weaving their way through the sage in the backcountry of the Sierras. Beautiful Pizona wild horses. I got out of my car and spent half an hour photographing them from afar. I left my hiking boots at home and I wanted so badly to track these horses, get closer to them, but Birkenstock sandals and brittle bushes don’t mix. What a lovely surprise seeing them on this golden morning. #wildhorses #wildhorsepc #wildmustangsforever #wildhorsesofinstagram #keepwildhorseswild #wildhorseswildplaces #wildhorsesofthewest #wildhorsesofnevada #wildhorsesofcalifornia #californiawildhorses #pizonawildhorses #pizona #sierrabackcountry

There were so many horses in the park this evening - at least 8 bands - this is just a few of them- Odin’s band and Bomber’s family. 6/26/18 for more pix like this see @wildhorsesahead #wildhorsesofnevada #mustangsofthevirginiarange #summerevening #wildmustangsforever #homemeansnevada at Washoe Lake State Park

I fell head over heels with this gorgeous liver chestnut stallion running off a younger rival - so much so that I edited this video to show 3 versions: the original, a close up and a slo-mo. Hope you enjoy the mashup - he’s gorgeous! The sound of him neighing in the Slo-mo is wild, he sounds like a mountain lion.

Caution: X-Rated so don’t show the children unless you want them to learn the facts of life (ie just because you like someone, they don’t necessarily like you in the same way.) This little guy - he can’t be more than a 2-yr old - which I guess is why the stallion hasn’t run him off, tries to mount a mare who is soooo not interested. She’s probably in heat but she sure doesn’t seem to care for either of her suitors • video by @wildhorsesahead • 6/6/18 #mustangsofthevirginiarange #wildhorses #makingbabies #nature_lovers #wildlifeplanet #raw_horses #nature_seekers #naturalnevada #wildhorsesvideo #wildhorsesofnevada #homeontherange #naturalselection #homemeansnevada at Washoe Valley, Nevada

Spot’s busy afternoon - This skewbald pinto is one of the few pinto stallions on this part of the range. Up til now he ‘s had only one mare - a lovely grey who I suspect is one of Amina’s offspring (all her babies go grey) and they have a lovely little spotted colt. As you can see at the end ◀️ of this sequence, he has added a black filly to his family. I do hope he’s homozygous for his color as it seems he may be. 5/28/18 • The Virginia Range • photos by @wildhorsesahead #wildhorsesofnevada #wildhorses #homeontherange #wildpintos #paintontherange #wildhorsepc #nevadawildlife #nevadawild #naturalnevada #wildnature #nature_shooters #nature_seekers #mustangsofthevirginiarange #homemeansnevada #wildlife_seekers #wildpferde #chevauxsauvages #caballossalvajes #raw_horses #horstagram at Washoe Valley, Nevada

These youngsters were right behind me while I was taking footage of the various bands in the hills. I didn’t even realize it until I heard one of them nicker, then I turned around and saw them all standing about 3 feet away.

As the sun played in and out of the clouds and the shadows lengthened I had to head back down - it wasn’t a trek I wanted to do in the dark! These pictures are a feeble attempt to do it justice. I had my Canon with me too so I’ll be interested to see how those turned out. I took hundreds of pics so more will be coming. 5/28/18 • The Virginia Range (which for some reason doesn’t come up as a location ?! So I’m using the catchall Nevada.

I hope you can zoom in - this was right after I’d crested the ridge of the second hill - all these horses were below me and I guess they wanted to reclaim high ground. You can hear wind and hoofbeats. I love high windy plateaus. 5/28/18 Video by @wildhorsesahead #wildhorses #wildhorsevideo #instahorses #wildhorsesofnevada #homeontherange #virginiarangemustangs #wildandfree #nevadawild #nevadawildlife #highdesert #wildhorsepc #wildlifevideo #wildlifeplanet #wildlife_seekers #wildpferd #chevauxsauvages #caballossalvajes #raw_horses #instagramhorses #nevadamagazine #spiritofthewest #homemeansnevada #mustangsofthevirginiarange #naturalnevada #nature_perfection at Nevada

5/27/18 • My first horse hunt without @chiquita_of_the_desert (She’s doing great btw) and it seemed sad without her - I ended up driving about 7 miles of bad dirt road in the western Virginia Range and nada. On my way back I did spot what appeared to be a band way off in the hills south of the track ◀️ to see it - no road so I got out and hiked. It took me about 40 minutes to get to the foot of the hills which is where I took the second picture. Then I started climbing. As I climbed I realized there was another valley between the horses and me so I cut toward a ridge on the right and... there were so many horses - probably about 70 scattered in bands around the hills. I spent a few hours up there just drinking it in. I could see clear to Reno when I looked north - it was breathtaking. I’ll be posting a video next, but first a shout-out to the band on the ridge who led me up to heaven.

Photos by @wildhorsesahead • This is Where it gets hard. I was sitting, just observing as I am want to do with new horses. Chiquita, my 12 lb Italian greyhound/chihuahua was sniffing rabbit trails behind me, when the stallion approached. He was keeping himself between me and his family as he should. But as he approached Chiquita must’ve thought he was coming too close. In just a flash she raced around from behind me, growling as she charged to the stallion. He didn’t shy away the way most horses do, instead he twirled and kicked low, and before I could even get to my feet Chiquita was sitting on the ground, howling in pain. She was so terrified that she bit me when I tried to see where she was hurt. I was able to lift her and saw that her rear right leg was broken. The stallion was just watching us. I carried her back to the car and we went to the emergency animal hospital. They were able to splint her and take X-rays (X-rays are posted on @chiquita_of_the_desert ) and yesterday she underwent surgery. It’s going to be a long recovery but she’s lucky to be alive. I fear her wild horse days are behind her. Obviously I don’t blame the stallion. He was just doing what he was supposed to do, protecting his family. This first picture was taken the moment before Chiquita charged him. 🐾❤️🐾 5/16/18 #blackstallion #wildhorses #wildhorsepc #raw_horses #wildhorsesofnevada #mustangsofthevirginiarange #mustangfamily #naturalnevada #wildlife_seekers #wildlifeplanet #raw_wildlife #wild_nature #wild_life #naturephotography #homemeansnevada at Washoe Valley, Nevada

The sounds of spring - mustangs munching on the fresh green grass, birds sending out their mating calls and you’ll have to imagine the scent of the desert blooms - the air is sweet and warm.

This shows the winner of the stand-off, the bay stallion and his young mare enjoying the lick while the less dominant stallion and his mares wait their turn. The pinto stallion and his harem are out of the shot, grazing nearby. I really wonder what’s in that soil that made it so appealing to these horses. I’ve seen horses in that gulch before but never noticed that they were licking and nibbling the soil. It seems to be just that one little spot. #mustangsofthevirginiarange #wildhorses #wildhorsesvideo #wildhorsesofnevada #homeontherange #homemeansnevada #wildlifevideo #naturevideo at Washoe Valley, Nevada

@wildhorsesahead

Here the Bay and the Pinto scuffle a bit, but the bay prevails and he and his young mare get the lick. It’s interesting to see the Pinto chase the young mare who belongs to his rival. He’s trying establish that space as his for his band. I’d bet money that mare is his daughter. The stallions settle things without any real violence. They did a little fighting before this which I mostly didn’t get on film because I was wisely scrambling to get out of their way - I was down in the gulch there with them and it wasn’t a safe place when they started in which is why this is shot from above • Video by @wildhorsesahead • 4/29/18 #wildhorsesvideo #wildhorsesofnevada #wildlifevideo #wildlifeplanet #naturalnevada #mustangsofthevirginiarange #homemeansnevada #wildstallions #nevadawildlife #widhorsepc at Washoe Valley, Nevada

Part 3: I love it when this happens - it’s the equine greeting line. One by one they check you out and then you’re in the club. I counted at least 30 adults and 3 foals, but many of the mares are pregnant so we’ll be seeing more babies soon. I know the Range is overcrowded, and hope Nevada can figure out something to save these wonderful beings • Video by @wildhorsesahead • 4/19/18. #mustangsofthevirginiarange #wildhorses #wildhorsepc #wildhorsesofnevada #highdesertwildlife #naturalnevada #justcowboyshit #wildhorsesvideo #wildhorsemovie #raw_horses #spiritofthewest #nevadamagazine #homeontherange #homemeansnevada

Every once in a great while there comes a day that’s just mustang magic. Today I decided on a whim to drive up to the Range - check out my new (to me) 4WD - yes!!! and see what I might find. I spotted some horses but they were way far away... so I parked and started hiking. What ensued was simply amazing. These first 3 pictures are of a small band - a pinto stallion, his very pretty grey mare, their tiny pinto foal and a 2-year old mare, a dark roan who will probably go grey. This first shot is right after the stallion spotted another pinto who is part of a bachelor band • photo by @wildhorsesahead • 4/29/18 #mustangsofthevirginiarange #mustangstallions #wildhorsesofnevada #nevadaskies #wildandfree #pintostallion #highdesertlife #highdesert #nevadawildlife #stormyday #desertofficial #offroad #wildhorsepc

Video by @wildhorsesahead • I haven’t seen Grey Mare and her band for a long time. I know there are people who have understandably mistaken her for a stallion because she seems to guide the herd, but there’s her little colt by her side and an even younger filly with the bay. The stallion (who I haven’t named - any suggestions?) has his hands full with this colt as you can see. Bet he turns in to a roan like his sister - who doesn’t look as much like a donkey anymore. I don’t know where the rest of the band has gone - there used to be a palomino mare and some others with this family but I guess another stallion split it up.

A band out by USA Patkway - this industrial park, the largest in the country (!) is home to the Tesla battery plant, a massive WalMart distribution center, PetSmart distribution center just to name a few. It crosses two counties and is in the center of the Virginia Range home to many bands of mustangs. You can see a building in the background of this photo. The horses have adapted and can be seen roaming all around the place & seem to be well liked by the tenants.

Photo by @wildhorsesahead . This was taken a few summers ago in the park by Little Washoe Lake. I haven’t been able to get out and take pictures lately due to a car accident so that’s why I’ve been doing things like my stallion portrait series. Now I thought I’d post some favorite color shots that share the feeling of what it’s like to be out among the mustangs which hopefully I will be able to do soon!

Stallions - Rocket • A beautiful golden bay stallion who lives with his small family in the Western part of the southern Virginia Range. I thought I’d close out this little series with a young stallion who is just starting out. He had two mares and one foal last summer. I’m hoping to find them again this spring and see how they’re doing. He sure knows how to strike a pose.

Stallions - Buck • I chose this picture of Buck because I first saw him in the snow, and often when I would bundle up and brave the elements I would be rewarded with an encounter with Buck’s band. This was taken on NYD 2012. Buck was a son of a great cremelo stallion who sired many buckskins and palominos. Buck’s offspring were all reflecting that cremelo gene, and he sired generations of palomino, buckskin and white foals. He was incredibly photogenic and always remained between me and his family. I looked for him many times in later years but have not seen him since 2012. He and his band might have been taken in a gather. What a great stallion.
