Marlin will be featuring his most recent collection of photographs of the Kiger Mustangs. These beautiful mustangs are the oldest horses in North America--brought to our country over 400 years ago by the Spanish. Their story is as compelling as the images that Marlin has captured. Come pay witness to an American Legend.
The story of the Kiger Mustangs:
The band of twenty-seven horses discovered by the BLM(bureau of land management) in the Beatys Butte wilderness of eastern Oregon in 1977 was the last group to be found that are so true to type -- the last of the Spanish "special forces horses" that had come to the Americas in the 1600s. When the BLM moved the herd to two management areas -- Kiger Creek and Riddle Mountain -- where they could be protected and developed, they insured short-term that the Kigers would survive. Now there are precious few of these unique, pure and top class examples of the Spanish origin horses left. There are less than 200 in the wild in the BLM areas. Maybe twice that number that are viable breeders, pure and top class, exist in captivity (excluding the geldings). These horses are endangered by situation if not by government designation.

"I began photography in earnest in early 2012. Taking photos had never been a struggle for me; I love trying to capture the beauty in a spontaneous moment. The fear of sharing them with the rest of the world was a struggle so I decided, every day for a consecutive 365 days, I would contribute something new. I started working initially with just my iPhone. I progressed in my photography and shifted to my first DSLR. Now 2 years later it has become a significant focus in my life and I hope to continue to share my adventures and the moments I encounter with the rest of the world."
