This place is wonderful and it is very obvious the people who own this genuinely care about the horses.

This is a very awesome Wild Horse Sanctuary to go to. Both my hubby and I loved being so close to these horses... Since I was not able to get in the wagon, due to being in a wheelchair, we were able to go in the ATV. We will be coming back and taking another tour. Thank you Oldham family for doing this and saving these precious animals!
