The proud wild mustangs have had a hard time of it lately . But the tide may be turning, as Madeline Pickens, wife of Texas billionaire T. Boone Pickens, has just purchased a huge Nevada ranch with plans to turn it into a wild horse sanctuary.
The ranch, which is located outside of Elko, is 14,000 acres — more than enough room for even the most energetic horse to run all day long. The mustangs will also have access to over half a million acres of grazing on public land. Mrs. Pickens plans to relocate 1,000 mustangs to the property, and eventually hopes to host all 34,000 horses currently being held by the government.
This is truly a rescue effort. The majority of horses held by the government have been rounded up from the wild, but deemed too old or otherwise unadoptable — which means they were doomed to a life in the holding centers, far from the lands where they once ran free.
Horse Jewelry That Reflects Your Spirit
The best horse jewelry reflects your spirit. Inside every horsewoman is a spirit that longs to run wild and free, beyond any fences or barriers that life throws up. Nothing can stop the wild heart — it will triumph over any adversity and break through obstacles and challenges.
The right horse jewelry can remind you of that always. We’re fond of this 14K White Gold and Diamond Horsehead Pendant specifically because it captures that sense of wildness, of freedom, of the excitement of hooves thundering over open fields, running for the sheer joy of going as fast as one can. .57 carat weight of diamonds sparkle and shine — almost as brightly as the joy in your eyes when you’ve had the chance to watch wild mustangs free at last, returned to their natural home, running and playing and once again, living free!
