Stallions Fighting, South Dakota

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

Two stallions fight at a wild horse conservation center in South Dakota. It's an equine echo of an ongoing struggle across the western United States, where mustangs compete for space with ranching and energy development.
