In a Province that sets international standards for the iconic symbolism of the Wild West lives a small herd of wild horses. They call Alberta’s Rocky Mountain foothills home, sharing a piece of crown land with logging, oil and gas, and thousands of heads of cattle: three of the Provinces largest industries. While annual government round-ups see them sent to slaughter for foreign meat markets, science and advocates argue they are an endangered native species.
With only 750 wild horses remaining and a fate engulfed in controversy, this film embarks on a compelling journey and asks us: Is there a place in Canada’s future for a heritage animal from our past?
Told through a collective voice, Lost in the Wind includes interviews and information concerning all sides involved. From the professor who provides irrefutable proof of their ‘native’ status to the government…

Hello, I live in Arizona and I’m writing a book on a rescued horse who over the years has expressed experiencing quite the odyssey. I’ve researched his past and have uncovered most of his mysteries however, one mystery remains. He has an enormous scar under his belly…almost like a grenade went off…or a bull lifted him off his feet and tore him open in three directions. My horse also has cigarette burns on him. I’ve made a “reward” poster (attached) and I’m hoping someone in Nevada recognizes my horse. I can’t complete my book until I have the answer of how he came to be injured. His other scars point to horse tripping and/or rodeo. He also has a fractured neck (C3) and pelvis. He was stolen from an Indian reservation and fingers have pointed to a man named James “Jim” Anderson. This man has been described as “a man who isn’t very cordial to horses”. Another person told me, “If Jim stole your horse, you can bet your horse was BRUTALIZED.” I’m needing some publicity to get the word out…please see the attached Reward posture and if you think of anyway to help get the message out, I’d appreciate it. I live in Black Canyon City, Arizona. This horse is safe with me now but his story can help save other horses.
I forgot to mention, my horse experienced the brutality in the Winnemucca/Fallon/McDermitt, Nevada area back in 2005-2006. He lives with me in Arizona now. He’s from the Pauite-Shoshone Indian tribe and was rescued from the Canadian-owned feedlot auction in Fallon by Shirley Puga…bless her heart.
Honestkate – sure does sound like your horse has survived quite a life! Certainly tells us all just how horses are being treated. Hes so fortunate to have been rescued in the first place and to find a home with you. And he must be a tough little guy (maybe not little) or he wouldn’t have made it thru all that.
Odyssey is the word for it.
