The reality shows that despite the fact that there are many beautiful things in the world, nothing beats witnessing a wild horse in its natural habitat. Too few people ever get the chance to genuinely experience it. For those who run a horse sanctuary that specialised in protecting those mustangs, it’s not just a common sight; it’s also a situation where incredible things could happen.
Clare Staples, the founder and CEO of Skydog Sanctuary, took note of a picture that had been published on American Wildhorse Campaign. The pictures showed Ghost watching as Phoenix, a wild mustang, attempted to jump out of a catch pen. Phoenix was able to go out of the pen that day, but he was hesitant to go very far. He came back to keep an eye on his family. Staples claims that it is common for wild mustangs to form such strong bonds with their families.
After a few days, Staples found Phoenix and was getting ready to rescue him. Instead of being put in a pen, he was to be freed. Skydog Sanctuary is more than simply a place where wild horses can be rescued and treated; it also makes it possible for them to be returned to the wild. Staples reportedly paid a visit to the location where Ghost and Phoenix were being held captive, according to the Skydog Sanctuary website.
They heard that Phoenix and a male companion were being released into the wild when they encountered difficulty trying to adopt the family. When Staples frequently dropped by, Phoenix was there, but Ghost wasn’t. She learned that plans had changed and the stallions would not be released a year later. She thought the horse had probably been adopted at the time. She then put Phoenix up for adoption so that she could give him the freedom he so richly deserves.
Once the adoption was finalised, Phoenix went to the Skydog Ranch in Oregon. Phoenix didn’t seem uncomfortable in his new location, but it was clear that he missed Ghost. Staples kept searching, but nothing was discovered for over two years before something changed. As she said, “I found Ghost on the Internet Adoption and instantly bid on her to reunite her with Phoenix, almost two years after the roundup.
She ultimately prevailed in the bid and was able to reunite the two horses. In the end, it was a big success. They also celebrate Phoenix and Ghost’s reconciliation. The fact that they are now spending their days together and seem to have grown inseparable suggests that it has also greatly lifted Phoenix’s mood.
