Visions In The Paseo Scheduled
By Tourism Industry Partner
Oklahoma City, OK May 16, 2011: Wild horses or wild Mustangs are of great importance to our western heritage and our western lifestyle. To quote the Wild Horse and Burro Act of 1971, "wild horses and burros are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West; wild horses contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people; and that these wild horses and burros are fast disappearing from the American scene.” The dramatic events that took place many years ago are once again rearing their ugly head. The wild horse photos on display at Visions In the Paseo Art Gallery go beyond the typical image, they serve to document what is at stake, what we stand to lose if a management solution is not found for the wild mustangs. A portion of the proceeds on wild horse fine art prints will be donated to non-BLM sanctuaries and adoption facilities, for the preservation of our wild horses for future generations.
Tamara Gooch lives in Montana and specializes in Wild Horse Photography, Western Lifestyle Images as well as Landscape and Wildlife photography. Her images will forever be edged in your mind as they carry you to places you've never experienced and even some you have.
"What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected."
