Just this last week, the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group shared a heartwarming story to their Instagram page. A new baby wild horse was found all alone and after some time, was successfully reunited with its mother. That beautiful story led us to round up some of the best and recent photos of wild horses in Arizona that are sure to make your day. 

Tonto National Forest is where these majestic creatures call home and thankfully, there are ways for you to spot and photograph them too.

If you're planning on going wildlife viewing, we recommend following these horse safety guidelines to ensure you have a fun and safe time. 

Currently, the wild horses are protected under the state of Arizona. 

Our first photo below is of the newborn foal that was found on the side of Fort McDowell road near Phoenix. It's possible that its mother was spooked and took off without the baby, the SRWHMG noted that "it is not uncommon for mares to run away right after the birthing process, if they are disturbed by something."

Without further ado, here are seven of the most recent photos of wild horses that have been spotted near Phoenix. 

This baby was born on the morning of Valentine's Day. How precious is that?

Just one day ago, a photographer caught this unique colored stallion on camera. You can see it pictured above with various shades of brown, black, and white. 

There's no love like a mamma and her baby. Look at that beautiful colored coat.

The towering Saguaro cactus in the background makes this picture stunning. 

Looks like the herd is in love with their newest addition.

These beauties are enjoying some good ol' horseplay.

There are many places to see the wild horses in Arizona including Saguaro Lake, along the Lower Salt River, and Tonto National Forest. 

If you want to see more baby foal pictures, we recommend checking the Salt River Wild Horse Management Groups Instagram for updates.
