Wild Horses!

We had a great time seeing the wild Mustangs in the West Desert this weekend.

While the horses were somewhat elusive, we took some time to visit the old target site where the “Enola Gay” practiced during WWII.   There remains an old observation tower standing and one crumbled as well as the target itself with visible target lines, bomb craters & fragments.

The horses could be seen in small bands, and it was interesting to see how the stallions defended their band of mares.  We avoided getting too close, as we don’t want to harass the beautiful animals, but through binoculars you could clearly see their bulging scarred muscles.
