THE HEART OF WILD EQUINE

“It is always a pleasure to have Robert Bauer contribute, from his heart, to Straight from the Horse’s Heart. Terry and I first met Robert in the Pryor Mountains during the much publicized roundup of Cloud and his herd on Labor Day weekend, 2009.

Many thanks to Robert and his insightful view of our much beleaguered, last remaining wild equine.” ~ R.T.
