Freedom Restored

Video from 2012 showing the return of wild horses to Stone Cabin HMA.  Their crime?  They entered the country by birth.

The Stone Cabin Greys are noted for their change in color from black or bay when young, to grey, to white or almost white in adulthood.

The first wild horse gather was carried out at this HMA in 1975, under the watchful eye of Velma Johnston.  Helicopters and motor vehicles were not allowed at the time but were authorized a year later by the Federal Land Policy and Management Act.  Johnston died in 1977.
