This is a great website – lots of information. Thank you to everyone involved with the WHOAS for the work you are doing to protect and manage the wild horse herds of Alberta. It must be a big commitment but, no doubt, very rewarding as well.
I am a pensioner living in England. I have always loved horses but unfortunately never been able to own one. I discovered your FB page by accident and now follow it avidly to get news of the wild horses. I admire your work so much and support your excellent mission statement 100%. I hope you will be able to continue your vital work-for many years to come.
For a little over twenty years I was blessed to roam around Alberta witnessing the lives of many wild horses being free. I’m relieved and grateful to learn there are people contributing to the well being of them. May you all continue to prosper in your mission. Take care.
