The Overlook

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Megan McMahon

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is home to about 170 wild mustangs against a backdrop of hills and colored rock. Spring is foaling time, but also a time of risk. There are cougars and coyotes in the park so foals must be up and ready to run soon after being born. The mare stays very close and guarded, but gradually allows foals to explore, socialize, and build survival skills. The foal here is 2-3 days old.

Location: Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Medora, North Dakota
