that they've been saved from slaughter, let's find permanent
homes for our Virginia Range friends!
HOW WE STARTED
2001, wild horse enthusiasts rallied together to save “Two
Socks,” a stately bay stallion, when he was removed. As
his sire before him, “Two Socks” had roamed free in a
valley, just east of Dayton, Nevada, for over 20 years. With his
great temperament, gentle nature and excellent conformation, it was
a pleasure to see him though he never allowed anyone to touch him.
He was the epitome of the best in a wild horse. He not only threw
beautiful foals but ones that could survive and thrive in the wild.
Residents were horrified when he was captured, knowing a horse that
old, especially a stallion, would never find an adopter and, undoubtedly,
be sent to auction for slaughter. The Wild Horse Preservation League
was quickly formed to find an immediate care-giver for him locally.
Though this great horse has lost his freedom, he did not lose his
life. “Two Socks” is our “Poster Child,” and
the impetus for causing people to finally speak out, and be heard
on the plight of OUR wild horses.
Wild Horse Preservation League is always open to new ideas and voices
in the struggle to keep our wild horses free from slaughter and eventual
extinction. We do not wish to see them all put in a limited number
of sanctuaries. However, we need your help to keep their freedom
on OUR public lands.
