The McCullough Peak Wild Horse management (HMA) is a preservation and protection area for these beautiful mustang’s.
The McCullough Peaks is located 12 to 27 miles east of Cody, Wyoming.
So if you happen to be in the area or feel like taking a trip, I highly recommend you go see them. They are truly something you will sit and watch or in my case photograph them for hours.
These wild horeses are believed to be descendants of Buffalo Bill’s horses from his Wild West Show. If so, then that just adds to there history of the old west.
The horse photographed above, his name happens to be Brook Rose or Sage. I think I prefer the name Sage, because of his coloring. He blends right in with his surroundings.
He also seems to be the only horse out there with his unique coloring.
If you take a close look, he is covered in old and new battle scarres.
One this particular day that I was there, they were pretty calm. I didn’t see any major scuffles, just a couple of nippers.
Most of them had finished eating, so they decided it was nape time.
Most of the wild horses on this preserve seemed to be black, white, brown, solid or mixed in color. All but Sage, either way all were beautiful!
This pony happens to be Oreo, he is also another favorite!
Family sticks together, they must be. Because the three of them sure look a like.
Not only is there the young but the old as well. This guy happens to have big hump on his neck, poor guy must get a sore neck at the end of the day.
There’s always time for a good back scratch!
I had a wonderful day watching and photographing these wild beauties. Even though it was a very windy, cool Wyoming day, there was a peacefulness being around them.
If you’re a horse lover, photographer or just a nature lover. Visiting the Wild Mustang’s is a must to do!
