Friends of a Legacy (F.O.A.L.) was founded in April 2005 by four dedicated Cody, Wyoming residents commited to preserving and protecting the wild horse herd living in the McCullough Peaks.
In 2006 FOAL was granted non-profit 501(c)(3) status by the IRS and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the BLM for "...coordination and cooperation between the BLM and FOAL on opportunities for public education, to enhance the habitat for all creatures living within the McCullough Peaks Wild Horse HMA, and to assist the BLM in managing the wild horses in the McCullough Peaks herd."
Keeping these horses wild and free continues to be the mission of our ten dedicated board members and Executive Director, and we are thankful for the generous donations of our loyal support base which enable us to complete our projects.
Our mission: "To protect and preserve the wild horses of the McCullough Peaks".
- Provide the public with educational opportunities to learn about the wild mustangs and their habitat.
