These two takhi/Przewalski’s horses were part of a harem of eight that I watched and photographed for quite awhile at Hustai National Park last September. This “grooming” behavior is as much about social connection and relationship reinforcement as it is about any actual grooming. The harem stallion is on the right and one of his mares is on the left. I loved being able to paint them in such beautiful morning light.
