I have been asked to provide a collection of photos for the Missoula, Montana airport. The manager of marketing and advertising at the airport was at my Rotary Club presentation about the Pryor Horses last fall. She recently contacted me and asked me if I would be interested. Of course I said yes. It was a good opportunity for a lot of people to learn about the Pryor Mountain Horses. It will be displayed in the airport in a place where all people can see the display, not just ticked passengers.
The PMWMC is providing information that will be available for everyone to look at. Thank you Lori!
I will have a thirty foot wall to fill. Below are the photos that I have chosen. All will be on canvas. I am grouping them in “2’s”. I have selected a variety of photos. My hope is it will give those that pass through the airport, a look into their life on the range. I think so many people do not even know that there are still wild horses. I hope I can raise that awareness and cause more people to become involved and realize the beauty that is just outside their back door.
Also, someone said to me today that they did not know that I sold my photos! Of course I do, but that is not why I am here. I am here for the horses and to provide information for everyone. But, a little gas money to go to the Pryors would be great! I take over 1,500 photos every time I go. So if anyone is interested in a particular horse, or photo, please contact me. My email is listed below.
First grouping and in the middle will be:

What an honor Sandy, congratulations! I can’t wait to go see it! Great choice of photos! 🙂
Thanks! I will let you know when it is up.
Congrats and good luck with the display!
Great Shots! I just finished designing a poster for Montana. Check it out: http://50statesdesignproject.wordpress.com/2012/05/31/41-massive-montana/
I think you need to add a Pryor Horse to it! 🙂
haha – good suggestion 🙂
Congratulations Sandy! And thanks to the airport director for giving you this opportunity to raise awareness about the horses with your wonderful work! It must give you a great feeling of accomplishment.
Thank you Linda!
I love the photos of Starman and Santa Fe (and Judith!) that you posted recently – any room to squeeze some of those in??
Thank you. I had a hard time choosing what photos. I wanted to show some action, but also the landscape and the horses personalities. I tried to choose the ones that I thought would give the best overall impression of the range and horses. After I hang them, if there is more room or looks like there should be more, I may order those to add! Thank you for the suggestion!
A lot of great photos here, and congratulations with the airport! 🙂
Thank you Norway! 🙂 That means a lot, coming from you, your photos are so amazing!
The photos that you’ve selected are just outstanding ! Makes me want to fly into Missoula just to see them on the wall. Congratulations!
Thank you Bella!

Sandy WOW not bad for a kid from New Buffalo. Picking the photo’s has to be tough, they are all so perfect at telling a story.

Thank you Nokota!
I am, of course, thrilled that you’re including that great one of Jackson,close up. He is soooo beautiful and such a great representative of the breed. I hope you get some video of the display when it’s up to share on here. It would be a thrill to see!
Thanks Linda! I will make sure I have photos posted when it is done. I’ll try and get some video as well!
