Dry lightening starts fire near the WY14™ eco-pasture

From Anne Novak

Dry lightening started a fire near the WY14™, rescued wild horses, yesterday around 6:00 pm. The ranch owner and our volunteers with American Wild Horse Institute and Protect Mustangs were on site and ready with our evacuation plan if needed. We prayed through the night we would not need to evacuate but the trailers were hooked up and we were ready. Thank heavens we have a solid evacuation plan.

I don’t know if you know that I’ve been trained by the United States Pony Club (USPC) in Horse Management, assisted the Chief Judges as a Horse Management Judge at competitions so I have been well schooled in horse care, etc. Irma Novak who sits on our board is a USPC national champion in Horse Management. USPC is cavalry based so it’s all about being prepared, knowing what your doing and giving horses the best of care.

The WY14™ Herd were rescued back form the slaughterhouse yard by Mark Boone Junior and I in 2014. Right now they live on 300 acres of rented eco-pasture on a ranch run by professional equestrians in a very tight horse community. A lot of people have their eyes on the WY14™. We have volunteers living near the pasture. Please make a tax-deductible donation to keep them there. Board is due in 2 days! : https://www.gofundme.com/MustangPasture8-16 Thank you and Bless you!

Yesterday some of our members helped evacuate some mustangs in private care who wouldn’t load into the trailer. They helped other horses too. The whole valley was filled with firefighters and people helping neighbors and animals who needed to evacuate.

Right now there are more than 2,000 fire fighters working on the fire with air drops coming from the nearby airport. We are still on alert even though people are bringing their horses back into the community. . . It pays to be safe.

Here is a photo taken from the ranch last night.
