Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue; Lancaster, California

Robin and I drove down to Lancaster, California last Thursday afternoon, spent the night, and then drove out to Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue.  

We were met out at the ranch by Angel, Beth, Cheyenne, and Mark.  They were wonderful to us and made us feel very at home. 

Angel took us all around the smaller fenced in areas where we fed some of the horses the carrots that we had in our pockets.  The horses have a great sense of smell and came quite close to us because they knew we had some of their favorite food.  Robin ended up giving me her carrots, as the horses were getting a little to friendly for her comfort.  Angel had to keep shooing them away because they were getting a little to aggressive.  It was great fun.  I ended up having one of the horses nibbling on my coat pocket to the point where it got pretty wet.  After we were outside the fence I went ahead and gave the rest of the carrots I had stashed in my pockets to them.  I was very popular for a few minutes.

Then Beth and Cheyenne joined us and took us out to the 26 acres area where the horses had more room to run.  Mark was able to herd them over to where we were so that we could capture them galloping.  It is a beautiful sight, something neither one of us had ever seen.  God's creatures, great and small, are a wondrous sight to behold.  Here are some samples of what we saw.  A big thanks goes out to the folks at the Rescue for their hospitality and for saving so many of these awesome animals!
