I have done it!
I’m not a virgin anymore.
The hoof you see below belongs to a scared feral Mustang stallion roaming the Nevada desert. I’ve got it on video too. It is kind of an “interesting” feeling finding your self standing in the middle of a herd of feral Mustang stallions that “correct” each other with markings and sounds frequently when something does not suit them. I did pick the stallions on purpose since they don’t have anything as long as you are not threatening there females. Of course I always positioned my self so that I had the stallion between myself and the mares and foals.
Cold Creek is a interesting place to study things like grazing habits (as long as you keep away from where and when they feed them alf-alfa) since the Mustangs are pretty used to people and they don’t run away as soon as they see you as they do further north in Nevada.
I wanted to see exactly what, how and how much they grazed and I wanted real close up shots (I do have some very detailed videos now).
Green grass? – No way.
Grass? – Well, maybe.
Plants that crunch? – Oh, yes.
