The Story Behind The Wild Horses of Shannon County Missouri
For the last 100 years, a herd of wild horses has been roaming the ancient and rugged landscape in Shannon County, Missouri near a small town nestled in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways near Eminence.
Wild Horses represent America's history and they made it possible to explore this great land. Never believe they are safe from being taken from us because we have history confirming otherwise.
The wild horses of Shannon County Missouri are living symbols of our country’s history and pioneering spirit. Anyone who has had the privilege of watching them graze freely and calmly understands what majestic animals these wild horses truly are.
It is hard to fathom that thousands of our wild horses across America have died at the hands of the federal agency entrusted to protect them.
Letting the death toll of America’s wild horses continue to rise is simply not an option. I am on a mission to do everything that I can to protect the wild horses, but I can't do it alone. Awareness is key to getting the right people involved and this is a role that I can perform with great pleasure. Much like Ansel Adams and other photographers that came before us, they helped legislators and key people see the beauty that needed to be protected. I hope my photographs will help influence the long-term protection and conservation of America's wild horses.
