FOAL Fundraiser Supports Wild Mustang Herd
Written by Andrew-Rossi on September 8, 2017
Living symbols of the American West, the McCullough Peaks mustangs roam wild and free on public lands east of Cody.
The sustainable herd is supported by a local, non-profit advocacy group, Friends of a Legacy, which is hosting its annual fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 9. The Fourth Mustang Rendezvous will take place from 5-8 p.m.
FOAL’s executive director, Marion Morrison, says that their organization exists to give a voice to the animals, and to assist the Bureau of Land Management by focusing specifically on the wild horse herd.
FOAL, in collaboration with the Bureau of Land Management, implements a fertility-control program to manage the herd size and also pursues projects to improve the range, among other projects that benefit all wildlife.
The event will include a dinner catered by Janet Stewart, music by the Willwood Gypsies, and a silent auction of items, including a stay at a dude ranch and “experience packages.”
