THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!
Billings Residents pulled through for these older horses, who should never have left the range, but are now back in their family bands. Conquistador is back with his black mare, Cavelitta; Shane with Moshi and Mystery; Bo with Sierra, Grumpy, Sand (BJ Star), Chalupa and their filly-foal; Trigger with Mae West and Evita…. and we also got Floyd who was so harassed the day he was captured. All 15 horses are now on a 3000 acre ranch at the base of their mountains. We had six trailers pulled by wonderful supporters, new and old friends alike, transport the horses to this beautiful ranch. The horses are in large pens and paddocks in their family groups for now and will be turned out soon.
Rain found a wonderful home in Virginia, Arrow has a great adopter and is in Colorado for training, Image and Ember will stay together and live on a beautiful farm in Ohio with someone who has known them their whole lives, Sax is in Colorado too with an amazing home, Sage came to Colorado too and is in a great place, Fettucine and Summer went to good homes I am hoping. Many other horses have wonderful people watching over them.
It is devestating not to have these horses in the wild with their families– nothing we can provide them is quite the same. Still, this is what we can do to repair some of the damage. Thank you to all– I wish you could see Conquistador with his mare, the light is returning to his golden eyes. It was dark when we arrived so no photos of that night, just a half moon in the sky and some very happy and very tired wild horses displaced from their home but back together.
Now we are in Washington DC to bring our cause to the Capitol! Call your senators!
