The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
In honor of Father’s Day, we’re celebrating wild stallions for their integral role in herds across the American West.
Male leaders of wild horse herds prepare younger horses for life on the range. They’re known as protectors of their herd, but they’re also nurturers. Stallions show great affection and patience with their young and teach foals how to be horses.
Every day, the American Wild Horse Campaign staff works to make sure these beautiful relationships are protected. This is our mission: to keep wild horses wild, and living with their families as nature intended.
The relationships between horses on the range are intricate, beautiful, and precious. With roundups looming this summer, everything they know is under threat.
Thank you for working with us to keep wild horses wild, and a very happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
