Friends of a Legacy

Founded in April 2005, Friends of a Legacy (F.O.A.L.) is a non-profit grassroots organization committed to preserving and protecting the wild horse herd living in McCullough Peaks.


Find out how you can support FOAL's mission to preserve and protect Wyoming's McCullough Peaks wild horse herd.


The McCullough Peaks herd is made up of family "bands". By sponsoring a featured family, you can play an important role in their survival.

The PZP Solution

The key to wildlife population control isn't in culling out the existing population but in addressing its reproduction.

Horse of the Month

FOAL to celebrate 50th anniversary of federal protection of wild horses
Please join FOAL on July 2, 2021 for a special event: This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act that was passed on December…
Inspired by a massive roundup of wild horses in 2004, and questions concerning BLM management, a hard-working and dedicated board of directors founded FOAL in 2005 with the mission “to protect and preserve the wild horses of the McCullough Peaks”. The board obtained 501(c)3 status in 2006, was joined by a part-time director in 2011 and has remained strong throughout its 15+ years.

Visit the Peaks

The McMullough Peaks are located 12 to 27 miles east of Cody, Wyoming and encompass 120,412 acres of land. The best grazing is found south of the rugged peaks where the terrain turns into grass and sage covered prairie.
