Wild Horses in Wyoming a Tourist Attraction, But Problems Lurk

Ken Martin has made a job out of showing the some 200 wild horses of the McCullough Peaks wild horse range in Wyoming to tourists, many who say seeing the horses in the wild is the "highlight" of their vacations.

An article at Dailylocal.com talks about the horses and the lives they lead. The herd has been linked back to bloodlines from 16th Century Conquistadors.

The 110,000-acre refuge is not an easy place to live, with harsh temperatures, mountain lions, and competition from other animals, including cattle, for grazing and water.
