Almost 2 months ago we found this horse with a halter on out west in wild horse country. Where did he come from and why was he here? We checked with AEP, RCMP and LIS to determine if someone had reported a lost horse. There was nothing reported on their files. When we first saw him we could only see his left side before he ran off with his new wildie buddy.
When we next saw him we were shocked to see that he had the wild horse freeze brand on his right hip. All horses that we rescue are freeze branded before leaving to go to their new homes. We did not post this then as we did not want him unduly chased or harassed. Over the next few weeks, we made attempts to find him and approach him. The stallion he was with, however, would flee when he saw us.
Good news! On Sunday, November 24th, a team of dedicated WHOAS volunteers was able to catch him up and return him to his rightful owner. He is now safe and enjoying his nice green hay.
