Review for Wild Love Preserve, Kingston, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I first went out to the Challis area in early October 2012 to photograph the wild horses in the Challis Herd Management Area about 3 weeks before the 2012 Roundup. The horses looked healthy and strong and breathtakingly gorgeous. The stallion of the band looked at me and snorted a little, but then settled in right away and granted us permission to be near. We didn't stay long so as not to bother them. We were ecstatic and grateful for the experience that I would interpret as something elevating and unworldly. We went back the next week and we were in love with the Challis wild horses.

We were very worried about our sanity in witnessing the BLM roundup, but we knew we had to do it for the horses. Enter the gifted Andrea Maki. Although the roundup was devastating and our hearts were broken as we wept, Andrea helped us stay calm by explaining the details and welcoming us with love and kindness into the Wild Love Preserve family. She gave us hope for the horses...and hope for human kind. Our lives have changed permanently because of Andrea and Wild Love Preserve and the amazing, forgiving and spiritual wild horses. Andrea IS Wild Love Preserve and she is giving her life in commitment to save our wild horses with a pilot program to show the whole country that every community can do this. WLP shows that we CAN save our own wild horses in our own backyard. My husband and I will do everything we can to help spread the word and contribute in every way we can for the rest of ours. xoxo -- all our love and thank you, thank you, thank you forever to WLP and their angel Andrea!
