A beautiful picture from our horse advocate community by John Landers. Mirabel, the only Salt River foal this year, is learning to eat River eelgrass! Feel free to join this page if you want to see more beautiful pictures of their every day lives.

“Rough Life on the Salt River” Captured this sunset moment recently of baby Mirabel (who is less than two months old) never leaving her mothers side while standing in Salt River with water up to her neck for close to one hour. The expression on Maribel’s face tells the story of how rough life can be for a little horse growing up on the Salt River, Arizona USA. She is going to be one tough Salt River Mustang horse when she grows up. Hope you enjoy.
Photo was take from a safe distance of about 100 yards for the safety of myself and the horses.
