The Wild Horses of Düelman, Still Running Free

On my trip to Germany in May, I taught a workshop and was able to visit and photograph the last wild horse herd in Germany, the Düelman wild horses.

As the mares and foals ran togehter and turned, the different colors and textures of manes were striking. The code for ordering the image is: fineartcolor-364-ManyManes and it can be ordered here:

As the mares and foals were moved to another pasture on a foggy morning, they ran by me. The code for ordering the image is fineartcolor-368-DreamyRunand it can be purchased here:

All of these images can be ordered four different ways: as fine art prints suitable for framing, as gallery wrapped stretched canvases which are ready to hang, as prints on metal, or as prints on acrylic.

  1. My heart sank when I read that you photographed the last wild herd of horses in Germany. What the hell is wrong with humans, why can’t big land owners build viewing towers and charge a dollar or two for people to enjoy viewing the magnificent herds. I am working trying to save the 100,000 wild ones the U.S. government wants to slaughter mostly due to greed, the cattle industry wanting all the public lands, insensitivity, and ignorance. Horses are healers, and I know for a fact. I am sickened by all that is happening in the world.

      Hi Nina,
      It is the last herd in Germany but they are protected, allowed to live their lives on a huge Duke’s estate and they bring them in once a year to take some of the youngsters to train and sell, keeping the population stable. They are luckier than our wild horses here in the US.
