Limited Edition of 950 | Artist Proof 95
With tail streaming behind, a proud mare leaps through the sagebrush—embodying the wild spirit of the American West. These herds of wild horses, galloping across the arid plain, are descendants of the horses brought to the New World by the Spanish Conquistadors and have roamed the western United States for centuries. Although Congress passed the Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burro Act in 1971 to protect and manage the horses on public lands, the acreage has continued to be reduced, resulting in too little resources to support the wild horse population and thousands have been rounded up and held in holding pens instead of roaming free. As ranchers call for the use of public land for livestock grazing, further diminishing public lands for the horses—the future of these beautiful, wild horses remains in jeopardy.
