Wild Horses of Alberta

The area west of Sundre is home to many small herds of Wild Horses. They travel in small groups of five to ten or more animals led by a stallion and his lead mare. I spent Christmas Day of 2013 traveling through this area and spotted several herds. It had been a cold winter so far and the horses were digging through the deep snow looking for grass to feed on. Despite this most look to be in good condition. What a great way to spend the day.
