Spirit Horse Herd

"This picture is of my beloved Spirit Horse herd. 11 equines in total, these horses gallop boldly and graze freely on 100-acres of beautiful pasture in central Colorado at the base of the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range. These incredible and majestic horses are a daily source of inspiration to me. To this day it still takes my breath away when the take-off galloping together across the fields kicking up their heels. Words can not describe the way the earth feels under foot when they run by. Each member of the herd has their own unique, special and sometimes painful story. Most neglected, abandoned or mis-treated, they each now find peace and love within our sanctuary at Spirit Horse Ranch."
