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.

I think he was a prototype of the P-51. Wonderful play of the shapes of the mustang and the mountains on the background. Excellent colors combination, thumbs up!

Fine candid of the Mustang roaming among the Joshua Trees and mountain backdrop.
It is difficult to conceive, that horses did not exist in the Americas until the Spanish and other Europeans brought them here. They seem natural in the vast west landscapes.
Thanks for sharing,

beautiful portrait of stunning animal. I love the picture shows the temper and character of this horse. He doesn't look intimidated by the camera but is posing very well. The settings add very much to the image. The plants of the scrub give us an idea of the environment of the mustang and the warm light makes the whole scenery even more appealing.
Thanks for sharing

this is a very fine portrait in splendid natural context. I like very much the warmth of the colours and the subtle tonal variations you've achieved. The mustang stands out marvelously, it seems to have lingered in front of your lens for a moment but it still looks dynamic. The blue tones at the top provide great contrast and sense of depth. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
