Wild horses in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota along Interstate 94 on our way home from town today. Some people believe they are a "special breed" of horse that is supposed to have come from descendants of Sitting Bull's horses. Long time residents of the area around the park will tell you that these horses are actually the descendants of horses that wandered from nearby ranches over the years. Sometimes, ranch horses were purposely turned loose to join the bands of horses running in the park. This was not done by the Park Service. Regardless of their history, it is always exciting to see the "wild horses"! The population is maintained thru periodic round ups and now also thru some experiemental birthcontrol. The horses share their habitat and grass with deer, antelope, buffalo and elk.
I guess I thought that this was an ok "rule of thirds" photo with the sagebrush in the foreground, the horses and buttes as the middle and the sky as the top.
