Wild Horses At The Crossing Stained Glass by Joseph Hautman
Wild Horses in America by Joseph Hautman stained glass artwork. Early man wiped out the progenitors of today's horses in North America but not before the small ancestral grazer had escaped across the Bering Land Bridge to Asia to proliferate and evolve through the centuries. Today, there are groups of wild horses in various parts of North America, from the ponies of Chincoteague Island to the wild mustangs in the canyons of Wyoming and Nevada. Congress passed the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act in 1971 to protect these horses, declaring them living symbols of the historic and pioneering spirit of the West.
