Oakley: The Tale of an Injured Mustang

FOAL is occasionally asked what happens to wild horses who become sick or injured on the range.  It is the responsibility of BLM field personnel, to determine if the horse can recuperate from injuries or sickness on its own, or if it needs to be humanely destroyed.  This is a photo story of Oakley, a bay mare born in 2010 that not only survived her injuries, but shows very little sign that anything ever happened!  (Photos courtesy of Eric Hill Photography)
