Stunning Sable Island Stallions

Carol WalkerFeatured Artwork

Sable Island is a magical place. Located 100 miles from Halifax, Nova Scotia, it is a 42 km long sand island that is home to birds, grey seals and about 500 wild horses. The weather in the winter is very harsh, yet these wild horses thrive there, and they are free to roam with their families with no fear of interference by humans. Although I am captivated by all of the wild horses there, the stallions inspire me in a special way with their very long tangled and dreadlocked manes, their fierce pride and their gentle protectiveness with their mare and foals. I find that black and white is a dramatic way to highlight them within their environment.
