Dear Mustang Lovers,

As the first bona fide Triple Crown contender in a decade,  California Chrome, garnered more press for horses than any other in years.   Had he won the Belmont Stakes last Saturday, the media coverage would have continued for weeks, and also in future years during the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing. Nevertheless, California Chrome did succeed in focusing the media’s fickle attention on horses, even if it was only for a few weeks.

One media opening  Chrome created was on the CBS Sunday Morning program, the day after the “Big Race”, which featured a band of wild horses that I filmed in SW Nevada, near the California border. Although great to watch, unfortunately with the weekly Nature Segment there is no opportunity to tell a detailed story since the nature segment has no narration and is “all natural” by design. As we all know from watching the Story of Cloud, and other wild horse herds,  there is always life and death drama on the range and plenty of horse tales worth recounting.  Perhaps I’ll have a chance to share some of those in the future.

For now as per the palominos & more of the Red Rock Canyon herd, anyone can post pertinent detailed comments on the CBS News website (after creating an account) to generate a public discourse and hopefully to convince CBS News that there are many more wild horse and burro tales worth reporting than the track record of one particular thoroughbred.

Please enjoy a few minutes with this palomino-dominated band of wild horses that  I’ve gotten to know and photograph for more than 5 years … Then please give CBS Sunday Morning and their viewers some thoughts to ponder at:

  3. Thank you Carl Mrozak. I have watched many of your nature moments and every single one shows what it is like to spend some quiet time with nature and every single one is excellent. I was just wondering how our world would be different if these were shown every morning to our school children.

    • That is a really excellent idea. I’ll bet there are a lot of “city” kids who don’t even know that there are such things as wild horses. Right after saying the Pledge of Allegiance would be a good time to show nature videos showing the beauty and majesty of the environment and the living creatures in it. Maybe there should be some sort of program where schools/classes could adopt in place a wild horse or burro (maybe even a herd) and the BLM could use taxpayer money to provide video updates for the kids (I’m sure this could be accomplished quite easily with the millions spent on helicopters). Helps the horses and educational for the kids. Could be like an ongoing science project.

  4. Isn’t that something. I simply cannot imagine a world without them. It is a sin and a sacrilege what the Interior Dept. is continuing to allow to happen to our national treasure of wild horses. What is the concept of the so-called ‘New West’ anyway?

  5. I would like to see Carl’s work featured on many more networks, and in more time slots. Americans need to see and experience this treasure that belongs to them. Each and every one of our Wild Horses and Burros belong to each and every one of us.

    Here is another one of Carl’s videos. You get a good sense of the tranquility that is only found in Nature. We are all part of that and we must stay connected to it.

    This week’s moment in nature takes us close to the Colorado River, not far from Yuma, Ariz., to see wild burros.

  6. why can’ we use these beautiful video’s to show those that lie about how horses graze that it is not the horses that continue tare up the grass by the roots . all the people ( wildlife, eco-nuts ,, and the lying cattlemen , and the b.l.m.. ) that the horses are not the problem . and the need to change their perverbible minds about the subject. i pray people in power can see this . just think from the videos the babies that were shown are now in a corral or under saddle now . makes me sad that some are now lost forever over the borders . washngton d. c. needs to change.
