Namibian Horses by Cyril Ruoso (50) More files...
In the arid deserts of Namibia a band of feral horses has managed to survive since World War I. The descendants of these animals which supposedly escaped from farms and military cavalry stock manage to scrape out a life in the sandy landscape of the Namib Desert. Bands of the rare feral horses range up to twelve miles a day searching for water, forage and shelter. With an estimated population of under 200 individuals predation by hyenas, starvation and impacts with vehicles are a constant threat. Fortunately, the horses have their fans. Pressure from animal activists have stopped herd culling and ensured the animals have a consistent source of water year round and conservationists provide supplemental food as well. Cyril Ruoso travels with the herds to witness their grit, survival skills and social structures.
