Check out this amazing story about one horse’s journey back to her family and the wild mustangs of the West in Sun Valley Magazine,
“Since as early as the 1930s, the US government has been rounding up horses in the American West for sale and slaughter. With hundreds of wild horses roaming the Idaho plains, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) near Challis has resorted to roundups every few years to keep populations under control. After being corralled, the horses are then shipped off, under federal law, to designated locations across the country—some are adopted, some sent to sanctuaries and many are sent to destinations unknown… Then, out of Southern California came new hope. And it came in the form of Neda DeMayo.”
