Mustang of the Month to Sponsor
Charming Sierra from California! When you visit the Tourist band of mustangs, a pretty little black mare will more than likely break from the band and come greet you. "Hey, I like you!" Sierra will let you know. Sierra is a true wild mustang with an affectionate heart personality! This gentle girl is our March 2014 Mustang of the Month to Sponsor.
Big Heart in a Petite Mare
As a filly Sierra Nevada was rounded up by the BLM along the California/Nevada border. This was back in 2007. Sierra was lucky enough to be saved by Carol Poole of the Mustang and Burro Freedom Foundation. Sierra arrived at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in 2012 in the sixth year of her life. She found her forever home of freedom when she joined the other rescued mustangs in the Tourist band of horses. We dearly love her here at the Sanctuary and are so glad that her kind heart was saved by caring people.
Oh Those Different Personalities of the Horses!
Even when you're visiting for a short period of time, the almost 600 horses at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary will impress you with all their different personalities. Some of the mustangs are shy and wary, some are proud and aloof, and some act as if they don't even notice people. And then there are horses like Sierra! Sweet tempered and amiable, she embodies so much of what we love about horses.
Not Only Friendly But Free Again!
Come see Sierra in the winter with a gentle snow falling into the Ponderosa trees. She'll warm your heart in the cold. And you'll know that Sierra Nevada has found her true home. You can bet Sierra will be a most grateful mustang when you sponsor her. Come visit us and ask her!
