I get asked a lot what I think would happen to a domestic horse if it was turned loose with the wild horses. And my answer is, a few would make it and thrive, but most wouldn’t. As a farrier I get to see a lot of different conformations in horses and in my opinion we as humans have ruined most of them with selective breeding. A hundred years ago we used horses for work and bred them for traits that would keep them sound, durable, and able to handle the workloads asked of them. That required big bones and big feet. And after looking at lots of pictures of back in the day, they bred for big heads too. I could live without the big heads, but big bones and big feet are what help keep horses sound. Today horses are bred for color, popular genetics that have high potential resale value, breed discipline, and then conformation. And good feet are rarely in that equation. Wild horses tend to have good and durable feet. Allowing them to travel long distances in a days time to and from water holes and feeding grounds. The other thing I wonder about is a domestics ability to assimilate into a herd without getting the snot beat out of them. Especially a horse that has lived in a stall for most of his/her life. In the wild herds it’s a constant battle and daily activity to establish social structure. And the wild horses are always training for it. Domestics rarely get to socialize on that level. It would be like pitting an inexperienced boxer against Evander Holyfield…. In the picture two bachelor stallions sparring as friends and preparing for the day they will need those skills to acquire their own mares and protect them. . . .

• • • Love Love Love these 🥰 • • So I have a little dilemma 🤔 • I built these cubbies and I’m wondering if you’d use them more as an entry table or as a pair of end tables? They are larger than your average end table but definitely look good together!

Photo by Melissa Farlow @melissafarlow I Wild horses run free in the West, although more mustangs live in captivity. A Bureau of Land Management wild horse and burro specialist uses an air rifle to hit her mark darting a mare with PZP in an effort to control horse fertility in Utah’s Onaqui Mountains. Although wild horses have been federally protected since 1971, their management is controversial as the herds multiply and compete for a reduced number of allotted acres. The BLM offers $1,000 as incentive to adopt a wild, untrained horse to help reduce the agency’s costs for caring for them. @NatGeoImageCollection @thephotosociety #mustangs #wildhorses #wyoming #utah

Photo by Stephen Alvarez @salvarezphoto | Canyon-style pictographs overlook the San Rafael River in Emery County, Utah. A sweeping conservation bill passed by both the House and Senate designates nearly a quarter of Emery County as wilderness. The lands include artworks like these on the San Rafael Swell. This part of central Utah is one of the wildest areas of the American West—and wilderness designation will help keep it that way.

To get to Angel's Landing summit, the final step is the ridiculously steep and narrow Hogsback, where you have to use chains that are bolted into the stone to keep from sliding over the edge of the cliff. . 📆 November 14, 2018 . --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- . #usa #america #unitedstatesofamerica #utah #utahgram #visitutah #angelslanding #zionnationalpark #nps #nationalparkservice #national_park_photography #travel #wanderlust #worlderlust #instatravel #nature #beautifuldestinations #natgeotravel #iamatraveler #adventure #instapassport #hikingadventures #igtravel #worldcaptures #passionpassport #Landscapephotography #forumtraveller #forumsession #fsnovtogo #gotd_2404

TIME

Nearly a year has passed since Brent Taylor was killed in #afghanistan on his fourth combat deployment. A single gunshot took the father of her seven #children, the mayor of his wife Jennie's hometown and a decorated major in the #utah Army National Guard. In an instant, Jennie and her #family joined tens of thousands of others who have lost a loved one in combat, an unseen society that no one wants to join or ever fully identify with, writes W.J. Hennigan. Who envisions themselves a widow at 39 years old? How can you accept that you’ll never again see the man you built your life with? And how do you tell seven children their dad is dead? In this photograph, Caroline, the youngest Taylor, is at her grandmother's house in North Ogden, #utah, in September. Read more, and see more pictures, at the link in bio.

TIME

Jennie Taylor's adult life had been defined by her husband Brent’s involvement in #america’s forever wars, but she herself had been removed from it. Brent enlisted in the #utah National Guard in June 2003, three days after he proposed to her. In the years that followed, he was sent to bases around the country for training missions ahead of his tours in #iraq and #Afghanistan. He regularly missed holidays, anniversaries, birthdays and key milestones like their children’s first words and first steps, writes W.J. Hennigan. Jennie, a former schoolteacher, was responsible for their home life. While Brent was on the other side of the globe, her world in North Ogden was small. “I was always a side player in this wonderful man’s life and gave him constant support, but now it’s entirely up to me,” she says. “When he died, every future goal of mine died. I’m sure every feminist would hate me for saying that, but it’s true. Now I’m trying to find who I am and how I move on a path forward for my #family.” In this photograph, Jennie sits at Brent's grave on Sept. 18. Read more, and see more pictures, at the link in bio.
