Shannon and I arrived in Reno on Sunday morning, and have been having fun with family. We've also gotten some good looks at wild animals that roam my sister's neighborhood regularly- herds of wild horses!
The first day, they were on the hills in back of their property, so we walked up there. I was floored by how close they let me get. At one point, I was within fifty feet of the herd's stallion, and got some great pictures with my telephoto lens.
I love these next photos! The dark chestnut standing in the first photo is the herd's stallion.
This morning, my brother woke us up to see the herd on the road just below the house. They came up and said hello to my sister's horse Chance.
They came up even closer to the house, then took off further down the neighborhood. They obviously feel right at home here! I took these from the family room in the house, leaning out the window.
They are beautiful, majestic creatures. There were a couple of babies in this herd, and at least one mare who is close to foaling. Hopefully we'll see more of them while we are here!
