On Wednesday the rainy weather seemed to follow me as I was driving up to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary. I was hoping that the rain would not prevent the release of the Adobe Town horses into their new big pasture.
When I arrived, I found out from Susan Watt, the Director that she had come up with a new plan. Instead of having to get the horses into trailers and move them up to the Rescue pasture, she was going to release them into the Paint pasture, which is just outside the gate of their corral. This new plan would be much easier on the foals and the older horses as well. They would be able to come out at their own pace, they had already met most of the horses over the fence, and Susan was going to leave the gate open so they could retreat to their corral for security if they needed to. I of course could not imagine that they would want to go back to their corral once they had tasted freedom, but once again Susan was absolutely right.
