This is a photograph of a mustang after it was gathered in a BLM roundup. He has the good fortune to have been adopted and has great health. Not all of the adopted horses end up so lucky. This image hung recently in a juried art show down in Denver. I am committed to portraying the plight of the American mustang after they have been gathered. There are so many good photographers who are currently documenting the horses out on their ranges. The series, After the Gathering, is intended to educate and touch the hearts of many.
Last year we traveled to California to support Return to Freedom's (http://www.returntofreedom.org) annual fundraiser and met a lot of people dedicated to helping preserve the mustang and its god-given right to remain free. They have done an amazing job to provide a sanctuary to preserve the wild horses while educating people.
Check out http://www.freedomforwildhorses.com, where you can purchase really great articles of clothing. These are a really wonderful group of women who have watched the Nevada herds diminish. Their intention is to raise funds for the preservation of these amazing animals.
It is also my desire to help organizations dedicated to the preservation of our wild horses so I will donate part of the proceeds from this series in an effort to help.
