The Bedouins (/ˈbɛdᵿ.ɪn/; Arabic: بَدَوِي badawī) are an Arab semi nomadic group, descended from nomads who have historically inhabited the Arabian and Syrian deserts. Their name means “desert dwellers” in Arabic language.
While many Bedouins have abandoned their nomadic and tribal traditions for modern urban lifestyle, they retain traditional Bedouin culture with concepts of belonging to ʿašāʾir, traditional music, poetry, dances (like Saas), and many other cultural practices.

Wild Mustangs on the run


 

Wild Mustangs on the run’ an equine painting by V.Kelly

Wild Mustangs painting
Wild Mustangs painting

 

This painting is dedicated to the wild mustangs of Nevada. Their plight was brought to my attention by my friend Shiloh, who calls them her precious souls. Sadly the severe drought this year has caused extra hardship for these great American icons.

They are an icon of the American West and a symbol of the country’s frontier history, but now hundreds of mustang horses face slaughter due to overpopulation.
Under existing laws the government pays ranchers to take in thousands of these ‘wild’ horses a year in order to keep population numbers down. Mustangs are not an indigenous species to America and are known to have an adverse affect on natural ecosystems.
The current system of managing these threats has been in place since 1971 but now rising feed costs has resulted in a growing number of American ranchers refusing to take on mustangs.

Glistening coats kissed by starry dew,adorning the Blue blood’s flight.
