FUNDRAISER for ISPMB (Intern. Soc. for the protection of mustang and burro)

On April 14th we were invited to haul COPPERSMITH TAG #900 to Estes Park, Colorado to participate in a Fundraiser for the OLDEST Wild Horse sanctuary in the country. Founded by WIILD HORSE ANNIE and now in the hands of KAREN SUSSMAN, ISPMB' 400 horses on 700 acres are located in the middle of the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in Lantry,SD. This event was organized by renouned Wildlife Photographer WELDON LEE and his wife LORI. 50some participants gathered and listened to compassionate stories of WILD HORSE encounters, communication, history and rescue.  A substantial amount of money was raised to support the extensive and ever-growing Hay costs.
Karen Sussman detailed her heritage Herds, but also eluded to the fact that numbers in the sanctuary needed to be controlled and that some of the horses were for sale.

Topics, like adoption, Bait-trapping etc were raised and the question session brought some interesting details. Mostly though the public gathered to adore and touch and relate to the glorious life mustang outside the gathering. COPPERSMITH TAG 2011 Extreme Mustang from the Ft. COLLINS MUSTANG MAKEOVER. The weather was harsh and wintery and the drive home a little questionable. Patricia Burge and my little dog Shawnee made it home safe.
