Wild Horses of Cold Creek, Nevada

By glazzaro  
Nevada is the Silver State, but could also be called the Wild Horse and Burro State since about half of the nationís wild horses and wild burros free-roam on public lands primarily managed by the Bureau of Land Management, Nevada. The places where most of the wild horses and burros are found are identified as herd management areas, or HMAs. They move with the seasons seeking food and water so they will be found in different parts of the HMAs
throughout the year.r

Every year I travel to Las Vegas Nevada for the annual Gartner data center conference. Since learning of the existance of wild horses in Cold Creek Nevada, I now go to the conference a couple of days early so I have some time to photograph the wild horses and burros.

At 6,500 feet youíll find snow covered mountain peaks in Cold Creek, depending on the time of year it could be heavy or very sparse. Cold Creek gets its name from the cold spring water that runs thru the valley and feeds into three ponds located there. It was at one of these ponds I was able to photograph some extremely beautiful animals!

I believe here both horses and burros. And look at their thick coats of fur!X

Great photo. Those conferences must be very interesting, but not as much as your photos.
