We have a favorite spot to go camping in the Arizona mountains near Heber. Twice while we were there we caught a glimpse of a feral horse. At first we thought he wandered away from one of the many horse campers that are in the area. When we first saw him I went down to one of the horse camps and asked if they were missing a horse. They told me he was wild and lives year round there. Many have tried to round him up but he escapes.
It snows a lot in the winter and the summers can be dry for weeks at a time until the monsoons arrive. It makes us wonder how he survives, but he does, year after year, as we have seen him on 2 annual trips.
He has a very long mane and tail of course. He would just walk by our camp and not get too close, it was rare to get these pics.
