Wild Horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park

We arrived at Roosevelt National Park on a drizzly rainy day.
Turns out that is an optimal day to see wildlife.

Almost immediately we saw this small band of feral horses.

 This smaller filly looked like a yearling and subsequently went over to the gray mare & nursed.

Hidden off by himself was this white stallion.

We saw these two off in the distance

And spotted another band of horses farther along the loop.

The next day, we went back and only saw this pair.
I really enjoyed seeing the wild horses.
The ranger told me there are 146 horses in the park.
Although they are referred to as wild,
technically, they are domestic horses that are feral.
