    Hi Pam,
    Happy New Year to you from Idaho. I read with deep interest of your blog, and your beautiful photography.
    You and I share a small piece of sad history. Gypsy, my wild mustang, and El Mariachi were featured on the same page in the Alliance, Nebraska Times-Herald newspaper in January of 2008.
    My husband and I were moving in 2007, and needed to find homes for our 3 domesticated horses and Gypsy. Gyspy trusted us, and was very much a part of our family, but she had a hard time with other people. For this reason, Mike and I searched for a refuge for her to run free in a protected area. Very much like your story.
    We found out about 3-Strikes Ranch, and verified its reputation through the BLM connections. We were so happy with the correspondences from Jason, and the few pictures he sent attesting to Gypsy’s well-being.
    Then the unimaginable happened in 2009. Even though we sent Jerry Fitch, Habitat for Horses, the freeze brand number on Gypsy, and I scanned every picture that was taken of this horrific ordeal, I have not heard back. I am struggling to find closure. I can only imagine that the sheer numbers of surviving horses who needed to be taken care of by incredible volunteers took up countless hours and expenses, and that is as it should be.
    I am so happy for you that El Mariachi survived. I wish he could talk to us and tell us of Gypsy’s fate.

    Warm regards,
    Colleen

    Hi Colleen – thank you for your note. I’m so very sorry to hear about Gypsy. I don’t even know what to tell you about how to find the closure. I’m sure you’ve checked most of the rescues that the horses were sent to? I know there’s a Facebook page for the 3-Strikes survivors, but I’m not sure of the exact title of the group. (I, because it was necessary to begin to move forward, had to put the 3-Strikes ordeal behind me). I wish there was something I could do for you. It was a terrible experience for people and animals alike. I send you healing thoughts and prayers.

    P.S. We lost El Mariachi in July of last year – I miss him every single day.
