In Memory – “Greasewood” of Sand Wash Basin
January 12, 2012
I just read on Facebook that the big band stallion Greasewood from Sand Wash Basin was euthanized on 1/10/12. I’d seen some disturbing images taken by Nancy who writes the Sand Wash Basin Wild Horses Blog and I wondered how he was ever going to recover from such an injury. I also read that The BLM took his body to the Vet for examination where a 15 inch piece of barbed wire was found twisted around his leg. Such a tragedy.
There is now an effort being made to gather folks for a clean up week at the HMA in hopes that something like this won’t happen to any of the other wild creatures in the Basin. At least there may be something good to come from the loss.
In memory, photos of Greasewood from August, 2011.
The family he leaves behind without a protector…
Beauty and heart. You’ll be missed big guy.
