Selfie With a Wild Horse That Came Up To Snuggle

This WILD pony approached me and wanted head snuggles for about 40 amazing minutes, what a moment. After camping out with the Onaqui herd for a week, I earned their trust. Though I tried to walk away, the animal pursued and kept head snuggling me with affection. So I took a picture with it.
