Playful. Protective. Dignified. Elegant and affectionate. Certainly beautiful. Above all else, loyal.
These are the horses of Wyoming's famed Adobe Town herd, their stunning images caught in the wild by award-winning photographer Carol Walker. Especially remarkable are the snowcapped stallion that Walker thinks of as Bronze Warrior and his band of Appaloosa-marked mares and offspring. But their freedom was to be curtailed. In the fall of 2014, the Adobe Town horses were rounded up, their bands divided. Bronze Warrior and his sons were shipped to Colorado, their mares to a holding facility in Wyoming, and their young sent to Carson City, Nevada. Moved by the horse's strong family bonds in the wild, Walker joined with other advocates to intercede. This is the story captured in Walker's signature dramatic images of searching out, gathering together, and ultimately reuniting Bronze Warrior's extended family at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary. Galloping to Freedom: Reuniting the Adobe Town Appaloosas will engage your heart and forever change your view of America's wild horses. With a Foreward by Steven Israel, Member of Congress.
