A wild cinnamon roan mare has come into heat and a stallion is showing extreme interest. He is seen here sniffing her hind quarters. The wild horses on Assateague National Wildlife Refuge are monitored and while allowed to roam and form family groups, they are allowed only one birth in their life. Rangers utilize birth control darts to prevent future pregnancies.
