The November Reprieve

The November Reprieve


Kit, Kat and Patricia.  These three mares were the first of several horses to arrive at the Sanctuary in November, desperatley in need of freedom. 


All BLM horses, all  from the BLM Incentive Program in which an adopter received $1000 for each mustang. Sadly, when the ink was dry on the BLM title these horses were hauled to a feedlot with a final destination of slaughter if not rescued.


But, "saved by the bell" with a last minute reprieve, they will live out their lives in the freedom we promise here at the Sanctuary.
