As many of you remember, I adopted BLM mustang, Remi, in 2008. She was part of the Grass Valley ‘Stang Gang consisting of Remi, Rojo and Sam.
When we moved to Paso Robles, the ‘Stang Gang was horribly unhappy – and I couldn’t blame them. There were no trees, no streams, no rocks… only sloped land. At one point, Remi looked at me with her ears hanging horizontally. I knew she was depressed.
So… I asked Skydog if she would take the ‘Stang Gang onto her lovely 9700 acre Sanctuary. She agreed. Sam passed away two years later… she is buried under a beautiful tree on the gorgeous, free acreage that was her home. Rojo still lives on Skydog Ranch in Oregon. Remi was moved to Skydog Malibu because she is older now and needs extra attention to keep her weight.
Today, Skydog sent a video of Remi with her two, older, best friends. Another trio of friends. So fitting. Full circle.
PS: I’ve seen this view… if the camera had turned to the right, you would have seen the PACIFIC OCEAN. Yes, Remi lives in Malibu, looking out over the water. Sigh. She landed well and she deserved it. She is a powerful, wonderful, lovely tempered, sweet mare.
