Laurel Paulson-Pierce The Mustang Project has helped to save the lives of some of the wild horses who were cruelly removed from their home range by the U S Fish and Wildlife Service. Without the efforts of The Mustang Project these horses would have faced an uncertain future after their brutal roundup. Of the original herd of over 800 horses, at least 50 of them are able to enjoy the company of their families and herd-mates thanks to The Mustang Project. The rescue of these symbols of the wild west is not just a one-time thing. The need for the care and feeding of these horses continues every day! This organization deserves help and donations in order to continue to care for the Sheldon horses!!
