Our Spirit horse
She came to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in 2013 after a Native American ceremony held on our sacred lands each year. 'Friend' was one of four Spirit horses. "Friend" as a Spirit horse represents the four Lakota virtues of generosity, courage, fortitude, and wisdom. "Friend" spends much of her time near Velcro, last month's Mustang of the Month and a fellow Spirit horse.
Living in paradise
This is it!! Paradise for any mustang, the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary!! Our June Mustang of the Month stands proud and free in a land of grassy plains and gorgeous scenery with canyons and towering hills. "Friend" is at home here with her three Spirit horse companions.
As beautiful as the land
"Friend" is a Curly mustang, that special breed of horse revered by Native Americans. Her beautiful curling mane and forelock reminds of us of the beautiful land she now calls home. You can see the grassy plains in her eyes and the curling canyons of the Black Hills Horse Sanctuary in her elegant curls.
A "Friend" indeed!
Yes, she has that lovely Curly mustang disposition. Her joy in her surroundings is as infectious as is her heart large enough to enjoy all humans and horses alike for their friendship. You'll have a hard time resisting her charming Curly personality. But, why resist? Better to indulge yourself in her love.
'Friend" needs you as a special friend!
"Imagine "Friend" NOT living proud and free. It's not something we want to think about. And your help keeping the Native American Spirit horse proud and free is essential to "Friend's" well-being.
As you know, your generosity keeps the Black Hills Wild Horse sanctuary a paradise for horses needing a land of their own. Won't you please be "Friend's" special friend and sponsor her? All of us together can keep the Spirit of the horse proud and free!
