The Assateague Wild Horses

The wild horses environment starts at the Assateague Barrier Island in the State of Maryland and journey's as far as Chincoteague's Toms Cove, Virginia.

The habitat of these beautiful animals includes forest areas, beaches, wetlands.

The horses feed on native flora and take opportunity to graze the grass verges of the National Park roads.

These horses are feral animals. Decendants of domestic horses that have reverted to a wild state.

They endure extreme conditions of summer heat to cold winter storms.

The Assateague horses are very much photographed for their color and beauty by many Park visitors.

My photographs are of horse profiles. Herds roaming near the forest edge.

Welcome to my exhibit.
