Abaco Barbs



I can't contain my excitement about an upcoming shoot I have planned. I am headed to the Bahamas in 2 weeks and I am working out the details for spending some time filming the Abaco Barbs. They are the most endangered breed of horse on the planet. The most current information I have read, says there are only 8 left. There is a group called Arkwild that is working toward the preservation and protection of the breed. They are just beautiful horses with an amazing past. I am not sure what I will do with my project, but with all the horse programming and websites, I think it will be easy to find some outlets for it. They do have some cool horse items on the Arkwild site at very reasonable prices. The money goes toward supporting these horses and Arkwild is working to buy a sonogram machine to help monitor the current breeding program. Lets cross our fingers for a couple new Abacos this Spring.
