Wild horses frolic and fight in the Alberta snow
Photographer Rick Price snapped these shots near Rocky Mountain House
It's not easy to get close enough to get great shots of wild horses.
But Alberta photographer Rick Price has the knack.
Price got these shots over the last few weeks at his secret spot about 100 kilometres southwest of Rocky Mountain House, Alta.
It takes patience, though. "Sometimes after a few hours they will come over as close as 30 to 40 feet," Price told CBC News.
And some don't seem to have a care in the world.
Every few hours the horses get worked up and start to fight, Price says.
"It's very much like the entrance door to any self-respecting cowboy bar on an average Saturday night."
And then they kiss and make up.
"Many herds of wildies just never get used to people and they run away," Price said.
"These horses … are habituated to people, but always keep their distance and an eye on me. But they stick around."
