AN UPDATE ON OUR JULY BUCKET FUND HORSE, “READ”… WOW! Dreams really do come true!

I hesitated in writing this wonderful story only because it is so wonderful, all of you will probably think he doesn’t need our help anymore.

He does still need us because he just traveled over 800 miles …


Is that the most incredible news EVER for this boy?

His rescuer, Clare Staples, was able to negotiate his release into Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in South Dakota!

I doubt his fate could have been any more kind.

Thank you Clare Staples and Black Hills.  Wonderful.  Just wonderful.

Such a handsome and distinguished gelding.

Clare stated that Read still has a cough, but it is better.  Overall, he looks much, much better and his personalty is shining through – much more than when he was in the kill pen, of course.

He will still need special attention for a while.

But isn’t this just terrific?!!

He will always stand out in the herd at Black Hills.

Look at that mane!


Please let’s not forget that one woman paid for everything from bail and meds, to Coggins, quarantine and all transportation….  I’d sure like to tell her how much we appreciate her and help give back.

I think giving back to those that do so much, even a little bit, helps keep their energy moving forward.

Let’s show Clare our appreciation for what she has done for Read – and THANK YOU!
