Nevada Adventures

Mustangs From Lockwood Nevada Wood Print featuring the photograph 41. Lockwood Mustangs by Maria Jansson

I never get tired of looking at wild horses. It gets my adrenaline pumping every time. Even the most serene, quiet poses of wild horses grazing gets me really excited. I’m trying to share the experience with you through my photos, because it really means something to me.

I have a birthday coming up later this week, and I’m going to spend my birthday weekend photographing wild horses. That is, if I can find them. I know of many places where they possibly could be, but after all they are wild, so you never know. Either way, I am really excited!!

The photo in today’s post is a wood print on maple tree, featuring a beautiful mustang family rounded up in Lockwood (10 miles East of Reno,) by the Nevada Department of Agriculture, in the fall of 2013. They wandered around on local highways, and had to be rescued for their own good. These photos are from when they were moved from a temporary foster home outside Reno, to a forever home, an early, cold morning, in January 2015. They are now living at a sanctuary. After this weekend I’m hoping to bring you photos of horses living happily in the wild πŸ™‚

I hope you’re having an amazing week!

  2. Very nice shot. Wild ponies run the moor near where I live (I’m an American transplanted to Cornwall)–the descendants, people say, of Gypsy ponies and the ponies that were once used in the mines, which were turned loose when they were no longer needed. They’re gorgeous.

  3. Have a very happy birthday! I really enjoy the photos of wild horses. The horses I photograph are all domesticated and most of them are high performance horses. So it is a treat for me to see your photos.
