Teresa has come to know and love the herd of wild horses that live 45 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, in the Spring Mountains, near Cold Creek, Nevada. "Heart", who is pictured laying down for a nap, has become her favorite stallion and he has literally stole her heart.
Cold Creek is located within the 275,575 acres of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Wheeler Pass Herd Management. The Cold Creek Herd is one is one of the final remaining wild horse herds near Las Vegas. The herd is made up of descendants of 1800s horse trade escapees and horses abandoned by Native Americans, Las Vegas settlers, and ranchers and prospectors in the area that moved to the Spring Mountains. BLM currently estimates a smaller population of 47-66 wild horses in the HMA. (information from Wikipedia)
The wild mustang's numbers have been depleted due to the recent roundups the BLM has enforced.
