The first of many photos I took whilst recently working in Lompac, CA at the amazing Return To Freedom wild horse sanctuary (a truly amazing place check http://www.returntofreedom.org/ for more information)

This is a portrait of Freedom the lead stallion of a small family band, quite one of the most magnificent horses I have ever seen.

Thanks for taking a look, as always all comments, clicks and critiques welcome.
