This is a moving moment when a wild horse reunites with his girlfriend after more than two years later.
But without the wonderful staff at Skydog Sanctuary, whose full-time work is the rescue of mustangs, none of this would have been possible.
Animals seldom have lifetime companions, but wild horses (and a few other species) do. This is why they are so closely connected to one another.
This reunion was quite emotional for a reason, after all!
The snapshot was the starting point for this happy ending story.
The photo shows a beautiful Phoenix (wild stallion) that dramatically escapes catch.
After he managed to escape, the mustang returned impressively to help his soulmate Ghost trapped there along with other wild horses
The dramatic image was initially published by the American Wild Horse Campaign, and Clare Staples, CEO of Skydog Sanctuary, discovered it while reading through Facebook.
The woman was so moved by what she saw that she pledged to make every effort to put the two horses back together. Yet the task is rather challenging!
Clare and her devoted team initially tried to adopt both horses, but failed. “They let us know that both Phoenix and his companion will eventually be returned to the wild, which is what we were pleased with,” the woman wrote.
“I want to give him back the freedom he wanted so badly on the day he was captured,” she told THE DODO. “I was always looking for his mare and I never saw her. We opened the aisle and he ran out… I always had the impression that there was a bit of a loss for him…”
