Family is Everything, Onaqui Mountains, Utah, 2018
Keeping his mare and very young foal at a safe distance and away from the challenges that ensue while near the watering hole. The young, small family band quietly waits their turn to water. When your a lone stallion with only one mare and no lieutenant stallion you are wise about when you go in for water. As the years go on he will likely gain more mares and a larger family - safety in numbers. But this particular spring, with his very new foal I watched as he kept them tucked back away from the fray.
