In the wind-tossed plains of Lantry, South Dakota, two wild mustangs playfully kick and cavort. Descended from Spanish horses brought in by Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century, mustangs represent a tenuous link to America’s frontier past. Researchers estimate the U.S. was once home to more than two million mustangs; today there are fewer than 50,000.

野马,南达科塔,2004

微风轻拂过南达科塔Lantry的草原,两匹野马在玩笑式地踢打、腾跃。继承自16世纪西班牙征服者带来的西班牙马,野马与美国西部开拓史有着某种细微联系。研究者估计,美国曾经分布着超过两百万匹野马;如今只剩下不到五万匹。
