We’re not saying good bye! In fact we refuse to say good bye to this iconic and rare historic band of wild horses that once roamed freely across America’s public range-lands. Wild for Life Foundation (WFLF) is instead saying hello and welcome to our family. It’s a new beginning and a fresh lease on life for over 100 imperiled Mustangs.
More than 140 Mustangs recently lost their freedom and their homes on the open range-lands in New Mexico and were in grave danger of going to slaughter, for the second time in their lives. This special herd of wild horses had come to be known as the Monero Mustangs, direct descendents of America’s most
It’s been a long hard road for this herd of imperiled Mustangs that had already been through so much. Many of them first lost their freedom and their families when they were chased down by BLM helicopters and ATV’s – the trauma and physical suffering caused by these brutal roundups is virtually unspeakable. The survivors were provided sanctuary under the charter of the Monero Mustangs, a federally registered 501c3 charity founded for the purpose of preserving their unique blood lines and heritage, by Sandi Claypool and her late mother Ila Bromberg.
This rare herd lived peacefully for years on a 5,000 acre ranch in New Mexico where many people from around the world were able to experience their majesty through the Monero Mustang’s successful eco-tourism and conservation program. Many of the herd members appeared in WFLF’s award winning movie, Saving America’s Horses which was partially filmed on location at the Monero Mustangs sanctuary in 2009. Filmmaker, Katia Louise recalls. “It was an honor to witness and film these magnificent living legends thriving in harmony with nature, complimenting the environment and gracing our world with their beauty.”
Just recently the Monero Mustangs had sadly lost their safe sanctuary home due to conflicting specialMonero Mustang founder, Sandi Claypool says, “We hit rock bottom and there was no hope in site. But then I got a call from Katia Louise at the Wild For Life Foundation. She was the only person that stepped up to help. If it wasn’t for Katia and the Wild for Life Foundation, our entire herd would have been brutally butchered alive for their meat.”
“Thanks to the many kind and generous donations from caring horse lovers who have come together in“But this rescue mission is not yet complete,” says Katia. “It has taken several months to save and restore over 125 of these majestic herd members to new safe haven natural habitat homes, including over 45 rare Spanish Mustangs and several new born foals which are continuing to arrive at our California sanctuary facilities.”
These incoming wild horses are the last of the renowned Monero Mustangs. They are the rare breed, direct and undiluted descendants of the El Rito Spanish horses brought to the Americas by Juan de Onate in and around 1598. With your continued support, WFLF will be able provide them with the security of a new forever safe and natural habitat where they will never be at risk of roundup or slaughter again.
As the remaining number of Wild Horses in the U.S. nears extinction, education and appreciation through the protection and observation of Wild Horses in sanctuary becomes tantamount to their survival as a species. America’s Wild Horses cannot be reproduced once they are gone.
WFLF relies 100% on tax deductible donations to do this lifesaving work. “Time of the essence. We’re down to the very last family band of this majestic herd who will soon be united with their family members in California. Plus six mares and their 3-4 month old foals are now awaiting transport from Equine Voices in Arizona where they had been allowed to build strength for the rest of their journey to their new home under WFLF’s wild horse sanctuary program.”
These Monero Spanish Mustangs are being placed into WFLF’s fully equipped equestrian ranch in Temecula, CA with a large multi-acre open space natural habitat and full rehab facilities. It's a transitional facility for incoming Mustangs under Wild For Life Foundation's Wild Horse sanctuary expansion project.
