How many of us have used the phrase “Wild horses couldn’t make me—”? H. Alan Day, author of The Horse Lover: A Cowboy’s Quest to Save the Wild Mustang, spoke to SaddleBrooke Sunrise Rotary about starting the first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary in the United States. Hearing his story, many of those in the audience concluded that his journey was a two-way street. The wild mustangs didn’t make him do anything except devote his time, energy and love toward 1500 horses who needed a home.

As a long time cattle rancher, he never thought he would be working with 1500 wild horses. The cowboy and the beasts shared a four-year journey filled with adventures. His co-author, Lynn Wiese Sneyd, shared some of her adventures, working with a free-spirited cowboy and trying to bridge the worlds of publishing and ranching.

Day and Sneyd’s book is available in bookstores and amazon.com.
