A headstrong stallion among wild ponies during the pony swim

Had a great vantage point to watch the wild ponies of Chincoteague Island swim across the water, an amazing main event done every year. As we were watching, we kept hearing a very noisy horse and noticed this strong stallion getting into fights with a few of the other horses. I captured a photo of him along with several of the others he had been horsing around with, so-to-speak. He was such an animated creature and his personality really stood out.
