A Wild Mustang is a free-roaming horse of the North American west that first descended from horses brought to the Americas by the Spanish. Mustangs are often referred to as wild horses, but there is intense debate over terminology. Because they are descended from once-domesticated horses, they can be classified as feral horses. (From Wikipedia)
At present there are about 30,000 wild mustangs in the western United States.

Black stands well against the soft blurred background. The mustang looks very proud and seems to protect it's brown companion.

Nice photograph of that beautiful animal.
The blurred background enhances the subject.
Just sad that the lower line of stones cut the lower part of the legs. As photograph we often have to compose with what is offered ;o)
Have a nice week,

Nice use of a shallow dof to isolate and emphasize the fg black horses. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with plenty of breathing space. The cactus in the bg lets us know this is arid country. Natural looking color too. Tfs!

I like your photo not only for the chosen subject (I love horses!) but also for the way you decided to shoot these wonderful creatures. They really are beautiful and placed against interesting and contrasting background. Very nice light!

A very sharp and detailed capture of these "wild" horses. A very good background too. How far away were you here?

J'aime sa couleur noir, reluisante, le regard vers vous, sa position avec celle de l'autre cheval, tout bon cadrage et réalisation

The black horses are beautiful...almost looks mystical look great in warm light, nice how you got both of them in the shot on a beautiful natural setting. A little surprised perhaps seeing your lens but they make a nice change of a charming image but nothing nicer than seeing them running free. Well done shot, Congrats.
