After more than two years away, a wild horse reunites with his girlfriend in this poignant moment. But none of this would have been possible without the support of Skydog Sanctuary, whose full-time work is to rescue mustangs.
In the animal world, wild horses (and a few other species) have lifetime companions, which is unique. That is why they have such a close bond as a family. That is, after all, why this reunion was so touching!
It was a breeze to get started on this joyful ending story. In the photograph, the gorgeous Phoenix — a wild stallion – is seen fleeing from a capture in dramatic fashion. The mustang returned after successfully emancipating himself to help his soulmate Ghost, who was still imprisoned there together with other wild horses.
The emotional photo was first published by American Wild Horse Campaign, and Clare Staples, CEO of Skydog Sanctuary, was surfing through Facebook when she came across it. It impacted the woman so much that she promised to do everything she could to reunite the two horses. However, this is a challenging mission!
Clare and her committed crew made an attempt to adopt both horses, but were unsuccessful. The woman stated, “They assured us that both Phoenix and his female partner would be released back into the wild, which we were thrilled about.” Nonetheless, the likelihood of their release is reducing by the day.
Phoenix remained imprisoned over a year later, and Ghost had vanished. Clare later realized that the mustang would not be released back into the wild. She applied for the stallion’s adoption at that time. Clare was unhappy that she was unable to reconcile Phoenix with his soulmate, despite her success.
When you are motivated to succeed and never give up, there is always a reward. This was something Clare was well aware of. So, after more than two years of hard work, she and her team have achieved the unthinkable. Phoenix and Ghost have finally reunited! After years apart, the reunion of the two gorgeous horses was understandably emotional. For additional information, watch the video below and let us know what you think.
