Mustang love

OK, most people know my feelings about invasive species. Basically if God/Mother Nature wanted them in Kansas they’d already been in Kansas long ago. Other than that they don’t belong here and need to leave.

But I have two exceptions – ringneck pheasants and wild horses. While I’ve  enjoyed a lot of pheasants last week was my first time experiencing wild horses. Below is one of a few hundred photos I got to take last Friday.

I got lucky and got to spend the morning amid some herds of wild horses being kept in the Flint Hills. Friend/reporter/photographer Beccy Tanner is planning a feature on wild horses in Kansas in Sunday’s coming Wichita Eagle.
