Our Jeep Wrangler swarmed by wild horses!
 
I posted this video in the JK section earlier this winter when I filmed it, but I just watched it again and it reminded me what a cool experience it was, so I had to repost it in the on the trail section. Enjoy :popcorn:

That's hilarious!! They're trying to eat it. They must think it's a giant carrot.

That is too funny! My wife and I took an ATV ride on Black Mountain KY, and we encountered this one horse--- But wow, you got invaded! lolHorse on Black Mountain KY ATV Trails - YouTube

The Jeep was probably covered in salt from the wintery roads. To them it was a giant salt lick on wheels.

That's a good idea to gather some wild horses up!

wonder if they were range animals.. not really totally wild. It looks like besides the salt they are used to getting fed by truck. We had a horse rescue years ago and received 36 wild horses from BLM to take care of. Those horses wouldn't come near anyone.. unless we were in a truck, then they knew it was feed time.. :)

Amazing animals.. I love them but will never ride them due to the fact I know too many people hurt/killed by them.

Incredible video!

I stumbled into a herd once, years ago, in the dark. They didn't wanna nibble on my pickup though, they ran LoL! And my camera sucked at night shots, so all I got were pictures of dust clouds in the headlights.

I've heard that the wild horses in Alberta aren't as skittish as they are in the states.

They could be, but can't really know. The Ghost River area is quite big, and there are only a handful of very scattered ranches. Where we were, the closest thing within a 15 mile radius was only a remote addiction recovery center in the middle of the woods. They could have been only half wild, but I know there are wild ones in that general area, because every now and then I hear on the news that a douche bag shot one of them for "fun" :( . There are people working hard to keep the heards wild and thriving, so there is the chance that they come out in the winter and leave some salt cubes for them. We'll never know :)

A little bit south of that, in the Waiparous OHV area

Figured I'd ask since I was in that area a number of years ago. About as close as I ever got to the mountain region :)
