“Boss Mare” was taken at the Dragoon Mountain Ranch in southeastern Arizona. It is a photograph of two Wilbur Cruce Spanish Barb Mares. In the background is the Dragoon Mountains. The Wilbur-Cruce horses are very rare and are considered endangered by the Livestock Conservancy. To learn more about the Spanish Barb Horses go to the Spanish Barb Horse Association website here.
Boss Mare received the 2011 Photo of the Year Award from the Livestock Conservancy! This image was also published in an article in the Arizona Daily Star newspaper. Check out my Etsy shop to purchase this image.
