These are since the Rodeo-Chedeski fire

Forest Service Road 51 Band


South out of Heber/Overgaard heading down Forest Service Road 51.
Nearly any evening in reasonable weather you can find feral horses grazing down that road.
Sometimes they are north near the population, within the first mile, but normally they are to be found further south near the intersection of the Forest Service Road 124. There is a tank in that area and they gather there!
Another mile south and into a large valley if you look closely there is a trail off to the east that goes to a very large tank. Just before sunset you can find horses there on occasion.
If you continue south they are likely to appear anywhere down to and including the Forest Service Road 300.

This litte Palomino is accustomed to people... seems like you could get out and pet her but I’m sure she would run...
