Wild horses

Our US Congress declared that "wild free-roaming horses … are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the west." The area of Flaming Gorge country in southwestern Wyoming is home to some 2,500 of these animals. With long flowing manes and tails and of many colors, bands of wild horses thrive in the grasslands and semi-desert scrublands of the area.

Originally re-introduced to North America by Spanish Explorers in the 1500's the herds today are also made of escaped and released horses from early ranchers, soldiers and native Americans.
