Most of us enjoy some positive news to break up the monotony of all the negative malarky–don’t we? The following update from the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary offers a glimpse of what humans can do to help our animal relatives. In this case it’s Mustangs. It’s a labor of love to give wild animals the opportunity to live and thrive in a world which currently seems to be all about destroying nature in so many ways.

SANCTUARY OFFERS
SAFE HAVEN FOR STARVING MUSTANGS

Saturday was a busy day at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary.  For the past three weeks the Sanctuary has been host for several horses that were recently rescued by local authorities.  We allowed these horses time to rest and regain their strength before it was time for them to move onto new lives.

 

As part of our mission to provide freedom for unadoptable wild horses, we are devoted to giving unwanted horses a “quality of life”.  We are proud to have served as temporary hosts for these horses.

Truck and Trailers
Trucks and trailers lined up near the corrals in preparation to receive their precious cargo and take them to their new homes.

Time to load
After being sorted it was time to load the horses onto the trailers.  The horses seemed to know better things awaited them down the road.  Everyone loaded calmly and quietly in preparation for the ride to a better life.

Is hay served on this ride?

Down the road..
To new lives!  The owners anxiously wait as the trucks leave the Sanctuary.

Still Waiting
We have six horses still waiting for their turn to begin new lives.  This coming Saturday will be the day for them.  Some of their “horsey friends” have left them and they seem unsure of what to do or where to be.  We continue to provide clean water and hay as they grow stronger daily.  Soon they will be in the hands of caring new owners.

    Thanks for the Neil Young song! Such a nice way to start my day. I was musing about how horses have become casualties to our changing notions of time. For thousands of years, horses helped define and create “civilization”, but now…who has the time? I’m glad the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary does.
