The Wildhorse Herd
Our herd of horses are sacred, a gift from the Great Spirit. Through the ages horses have paid a terrible price for choosing to serve mankind. Yet serve they have with loyalty, affection and honor. Some day we will know and understand one another on a much higher level. Then their sacrifice will at last be rewarded.
Over the years we have noticed that there are a lot of “throw-away horses”. They have been discarded for a variety of reasons: no longer pretty enough, not good enough, not fast enough, not trained enough, too sore, too old and the list goes on. We have become a voice for the horse who has none in this disposable world. We have bought many, many horses who were destined for the “meat truck”, taken them home and loved them back to life. Like anyone recovering from a bad experience horses need lots of tender loving care, good nutrition – extra feed, plenty of rest and no pressure. Between us and the healing power of the herd we have rehabilitated lots of horses. Some we still have, if they did not fit our program some went to new owners but we know that given a chance for life horses will give all their heart to you.
The Wildhorse Herd is a diverse mix of breeds, colors, sizes and personalities. We have bought horses from all over Western Canada and the US, sometimes we have gone to buy one horse and bought 3 instead because we just could not leave the others behind – what we have seen should not be legal to do to horses. So yes, we are advocates for horses because they have No Voice and No Choice.
