An alert medicine hat foal inspires photographer John Stephen Hockensmith to recall the Navajo poem Navajo War God’s War Song, which ends with the lines:

I am wealthy, because of him.
Before me peaceful,
Behind me peaceful,
Under me peaceful,
Over me peaceful,
All around me peaceful —
Peaceful voice when he neighs.
I am everlasting and peaceful.
I stand for my horse.

Hockensmith’s stunning giclées and canvases tell the story of the Spanish Mustangs of the Great American West. Hockensmith has captured images from the rugged Rocky Mountains to the remote reaches of the Oklahoma grasslands that depict the lives of the horses that are the backbone of America’s equine legacy. With these photographs, you can enjoy tender moments between mares and foals and the aggressive determination of clashing stallions. The panorama of the Spanish Mustang existence is a feast for the eyes and heart of any equine art enthusiast.
