The mustangs of Sand Wash Basin, located in Northwestern Colorado, are a herd of wild horses whose lineage includes Andalusian horses lost by the Spanish explorers in the 16th century.  The photograph shows a band of these magnificent horses running during a late afternoon Summer storm.

The Sand Wash Basin herd management is part of the bureau of Land Management and is one of the largest areas devoted to preserving mustangs in the West.  Due to the area’s remoteness, the herds of Sand Wash Basin have been able to maintain their blood lines over centuries and are a unique piece of living history.
