In Memory of Freedom


Freedom was a palomino wild horse who lost his freedom when he was removed from his home rangeland by the Bureau of Lane Management.  He was adopted by the US Marine Corps and became a beloved ambassador representing America's wild horses as a Marine.  He spent his "retirement" years at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary and his memory lives on today thanks to your support!
