Shannon County Horses Subject of Photo Exhibit

Photographs of wild horses that live in and around Echo Bluff State Park in southern Missouri will be on display at Social on Patton in Springfield starting February 1, as reported yesterday by the Springfield News-Leader.

Dean Curtis, who visits the area five or six times a year, will be present to answer questions and talk about his experiences photographing the horses.

These animals have roamed freely in Shannon County for more than a century and have organized into four herds: Round Spring, Shawnee Creek, Broadfoot and Rocky Creek.

The Broadfoot and Rocky Creek horses are said to be the most elusive.
