Self-Care Sunday

View this post on Instagram

This day of shooting #stories of #wildhorses was one of determination and endurance. I trekked to the #marshes and found great peace in the presence of these majestic beings. It was such a peaceful experience, I did not notice the ticks that joined me. They literally ajoined themselves to my skin. I discovered 6! Fortunately, I did not get 😷 and they did not stop my efforts to document. The existence #wild or feral #horse in America is often unknown. Through the lens, I promote #awareness to advocate on their behalf. Today, remember to continue embracing and #advocate on behalf of what you believe in – including yourself. #SelfcareSunday #caballo #pferde #raw_horses #horselovers #horsesofinstagram #cheval #fearlessliving #adventure #wildlife #photography #bbcearth #wildhorsepc #positivity #ponies #horsepower #mirrorimage #backroad_visions #cavallo #inspiration #motivation #success #goals 📷: @iamarliespeaks

Surviving Storms

View this post on Instagram

The hurricane season has come upon the Caribbean and North America with #hurricanedorian creating much devastation. The hurricane heavily impacted the #Bahamas and, thankfully, many are rallying to help. 👣 #Wildmustangs also had to weather the storm. Fortunately, with all the stories of destruction, there are also encouraging stories. The #wildhorses of the #outerbanks were able to keep their #buttstothewind and survive without any known losses and human intervention. In the midst of processing the destruction, it is good to have stories of #survival. The horses of the #outerbanksnc have a legacy that is 500 years old. Here's a link to their story: https://obxtoday.com/top-stories/butts-to-the-wind-works-outer-banks-wild-horses-appear-fine-after-hurricane/ This photograph is from a windy day, through our lens, on #AssateagueIsland as the #wildponies huddled together to manage the winds. #EyeoftheStorm is available for sale with a percentage of proceeds benefitting efforts to save and #rescue wild horses. #keepthemfree #Keepthemwild #horsepower #backroad_visions #horselovers #wildlifephotography #cheval #pferde #horsesofinstagram #cavalli #caballo #wildhorsepc #artadvocacy #fineartphotography #shots_of_animals #horseworld #natgeowild #iamarliespeaks

As #GrandparentsDay ends and we process the destruction of #HurricaneDorian, the #wildhorses of the #outerbanksnc provide a feel good story of survival. Their legacy is one of 500 years of survival.

Many of our grandparents have stories of survival and we are their legacy.
