From our May visit to the Palouse area. Juvenile ravens swooping and soaring, one after the other, between their nest along the cliff wall to the falls and back. They would fly by so closely you could hear the movement of their wings, and occasionally would do some pretty amazing acrobatic moves as well! Their remarkable variety of vocalizations echoed throughout the canyon and could be heard clearly over the competing roaring of the falls. ~
PART VII: REARING — LEVEL 5 “You’re a tough guy, but I’m a nightmare wrapped in the apocalypse.” ~James S.A. Corey
Said one stallion to the other! Here we are, rearing—the fifth level of agonistic behavior! The reason: To make your opponent believe you are bigger than him!
In the case of these two stallions, from the McCullough Peaks Herd Management area near Cody, Wyoming, the dark stallion on the right had a blast the evening of this image taking on no less than thirteen stallions. He would finish harassing one and then move on to another. Jamie, This Mustang Life, and I had a blast watching him and she started calling him a ‘little Pistol’, which then morphed to Pistolero.
Rearing is technically only a threat, but the body position indicates a more intense agonist interaction, and will allow the stallion to move into a stance for striking, boxing and dancing behaviors. Follow along this week for rearing images from across the range!
The McCullough Peaks Herd Management Area, located twenty miles east of Cody, Wyoming, is home to approximately the same number of wild horses as Theodore Roosevelt National Park, about 150 give or take and scattered across 110,000 acres of badlands and high desert. The land is steeped in history dating back millions of years and surrounded by fascinating stories from the locals who love the land and grew up there! So much rich and colorful history it has filled many books reciting stories of wild horse traps, burial sites, cowboys, cowgirls, history expeditions lead by women in 1896, yes….the history is endless!
Thanks for following along! Hope you had an awesome weekend in your part of the world and thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for singing the song of America’s wild horses by spreading and sharing their story! I still wonder how far along this country would be if it weren’t for the horse carrying the early settlers across that vast space of America many eons ago.

I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, that loneliness is my disease. I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, that you are the remedy. 🎶 Eu acredito, acredito, acredito, acredito, essa solidão é a minha doença. Eu acredito, acredito, acredito, acredito, que você é o remédio (Alesso - Remedy). #alesso#conormaynard#remedy#saopaulo#roadtrip
Woke up to find my rear tire had a bubble 700 miles from home and had to pivot last minute to get that taken care of. Then finally the smoky mountains opened up and we were able to visit the park this rainy, moody morning. The mountains made some killer models and as we were leaving to head back to Cherokee to find a hotel we had not planned for(we were supposed to be camping but the blue ridge parkway was closed down) we saw the entrance to the blue ridge parkway opened. We spontaneously hopped on it and drove to asheville to find a hotel for the night. Long story short, sometimes your day’s gonna suck, and sometimes if you make the best of it, it will work out. - cheers.
