Montana's last wild Mustangs still roam in 2016. His mane and mind remains wild and free, still in this day and age. This wild horse differs from domestic ones mainly because he is bred for survival in the wild countrysides, with thicker, more powerful legs and a more compact build represent part of the Old West.This black wild stallion horse is south of Billings, Montana, and amoung the Pryor Mountain wild horses. Montanas only large herd of free-roaming wild horses. This is a perfect example of the herds diverse terrain. Exploring the Pryor Mountains high meadows filled with wild flowers down through rugged juniper-covered foothills to colorful low desert-like badlands that border the green fields of Crooked Creek Valley. Steep canyons, and isolated grassy plateaus. The wild horses of the Pryor Mountains are Montanas only wild horse herd. The Pryor Mountain horses are considered unique. There are no paint or pinto markings, but many of the horses have stars or blazes on their faces and occasional white stockings. The Pryor horses retain unusual colors (dun, grulla, blue roan and sabino) and unusual markings such as dorsal stripes down their backs, wither stripes and zebra stripes on their legs. These are legacies of their ancient Spanish ancestors. Wild horses inspire us as symbols of freedom. My images of wild horses galloping across the high plains appeal to this spirit of the horse.
