From my recent road trip, Horse shoe Bend in Utah. This was just before a thunderstorm so I had a short amount of time to get the shot before the heaven’s opened and the rocks became very slippery.
I now have an Etsy store, check out my limited edition prints!
Thank you so much to my followers who entered the competition to win a print! I’m pleased to announce that through random selection, dearlybel-o-v-ed has won a print of her choice from www.mustangnic.com! Please stay tuned for future competitions and we will also be shortly opening our Etsy store.
You can see dearlybel-o-v-ed’s blog here, be sure to check it out!
Only one day left to enter the competition! See my blog for details or www.mustangnic.com
I’ve reviewed my process for offering prints.
Now, all of my images will only be run in limited editions. Each print will only be printed 50 times, then it will be retired forever and never printed again.
Each print is signed, numbered and dated by myself. They will also come with a Certificate of Authenticity and depending on the print will also have information on the specific Mustangs portrayed.
Prints will never be discounted or put on sale. This ensures that the price you pay for a print will be the lowest price it will ever be available for, and that over time it can only increase in value due to the collectible nature of each individual piece.
Not only will you be getting a rare piece of my work with every purchase, but 25% of all profits from shop items will be donated directly to the Cold Creek Mustangs, who are the subjects of my photography. Help keep these Mustangs in the wild and take a piece of their lives home with you.
See my store at www.mustangnic.com
I have never shared other’s images or videos yet, but this is too beautiful not to share with my lovely followers. Hundreds of wild Mustangs were saved from slaughter and given the freedom they deserve at Madeleine Pickens’s ‘Mustang Monument’. You can read more about this wonderful place here:

A few weeks ago I was involved in photographing a horse rescue in another town not that far out of Las Vegas.
These horses, all mares and foals were down to their last hour. They were due to get on a truck and be taken from Nevada to Canada for slaughter. However some local horse lovers were not about to let that happen. Despite only having definite homes for 5 horses, they took all 7. No horse was left behind. One of the two that was placed into foster care found her forever home the very next day, so there is only one horse left and that is a mare called Zoey.
Zoey has sight problems in one eye, but as far as I am aware this could be a fixable problem. She’s just never been given the chance to have it fixed. Zoey is a kind hearted, brave mare who now wants to have a special bond with someone in a forever home.
As well as this, Zoey has received no donations to date to help with her day to day care. I’m putting this out there in the hope that someone, anyone might be able to help. Even if it’s just a couple of dollars. Even a little bit can go a long way to helping this girl who very much deserves a second chance in life.
There is an account set up for Zoey at Shadow Mountain Feed, in Pahrump Nevada:
If anyone could donate anything for this very special mare then it would be appreciated not only by me and Zoey, but by her wonderful foster carers, and LEAN the Local Equine Assistance Network of Las Vegas.
If you’re interested in adopting Zoey, or any of the LEAN horses in Las Vegas then please contact LEAN http://www.allvegashorses.com/lean/lean
** Even if you can’t donate or offer a home to Zoey you can still help. Please reblog this, spread the word and help Zoey and horses like her. **

Getting organised now. My business cards have arrived and I now have greeting cards in stock which will be on my website soon.
Here is the next idea, a gift tag and stickers with purchases from my website. The gift card will be very thick and blank on one side for you to use. It will also double up as a lovely bookmark.
From my prints to the very boxes they come in, it will be art from my door to yours.
