Well, I think this is very timely…
Yesterday, when I revealed this month’s Bucket Fund Story – the “Train to Sustain” project to sponsor a pilot program to help adopt-out captive Mustangs, many of you were totally on board… and several of you were irate.
Basically, the irate people felt that we should be putting our money towards keeping the Mustangs in the wild, not training them.
Well, I agree mostly. I think we should totally do whatever we can for the captive Mustangs and YES I’d love to see them in the wild only.
Sadly, and in my humble opinion only, the captured Mustangs are probably not all going to ever be released back into the wild…as much as we’d like that. Or at least, not for a while.
HOWEVER, SOMETIMES IT DOES HAPPEN!!!!!
BANDIT’S HAPPY ENDING!
Today I found this wonderful email in my inbox which outlined exactly that – a return to freedom – for one lucky wild band. One of OUR Bucket Fund recipients!
Here is the original Bucket Fund story of Bandit and his herd of 8 who had been baited into a trap and caught. The Horse and Man Group raised the money to bail them out of the feedlot. The townspeople of Stagecoach erected a paddock and the rest… as they say… will be history.
HERE’S THE STORY:
The group that arranged this release of Bandit’s Band with DreamCatcher Sanctuary is the same group as our Bucket Fund for this month who are promoting the pilot program to train the trainable Mustangs and adopt them out.
They really do hold the Mustangs in their hearts.
