"Feature Friday – Opus

Howdy Folks,

Opus Moon was founded by Cindy and Bill Loos to celebrate the wild horses of America. Putting their musical and photography skills to use they have written and recorded several albums of beautiful, meaningful and moving songs, and taken thousands of stunning photographs of our noble wild horses. Proceeds from the sale of their songs and photographs go to support efforts to keep wild horses running free.

Opus Moon's efforts have been appreciated and noticed by many like minded individuals as noteworthy and eye opening, bringing attention to the plight of wild horses and burros at the hands of the BLM. One individual so moved was Joseph Piner, documentary film maker whose latest project the film, "Free Spirits – Saving America's Wild Horses" will be released this fall. So touched was he by their songs and efforts that he featured their music in his film.

Opus Moon owes its name to a late September evening when Cindy and Bill were settling into their campsite, after a day of searching for, and photographing the wild horses they'd come to know so well. A bright moon hung high overhead and the sounds of the open range night drifted into the campsite. So did the music of running wild horses. Opus is the coming together of artistic composition, and this night the artistry of the call of an owl, rustle of an evening breeze and wild horses running and nickering under that bright moon was truly artistic.
