Theses are the “American War Horses”, descendants of the horses that carried US solders in early American and World Wars. Warrior (the first pictured below) is branded on his back left hind with US 1158. Through a collaborative effort these 4 Sheldon Mustangs were preserved and brought here from a holding facility in Colorado on August 20th.
Despite their difficult history of hardship and an 18 hour trek here, they arrived sound, calm and content. These are the qualities of freedom that inspire our SomaYoga: Freedom Series. We are honored to provide sanctuary for these majestic animals during the preparing of their permanent home. We are very excited to join the community of This Old Horse. Inc.
