He is my inspiration and my hero. When I look at Red Feather in this photo, I think of the old Indian Chief in the television commercial, who is standing on the side of the highway with a tear running down his cheek...and I know he is wondering why man is destroying his beautiful land that he once called home.
Our Great Creator gave us all this beautiful land we called home and provided all of the good things for us to eat and drink...now man in all of his greed continues to take it all away.
How many huge houses can they build on the sands and beaches, why do they come and see our land and think it is beautiful and then take away all of the beauty with great towering buildings from ocean to bay.
Many moons ago we were free, one with our lands, now we watch as man takes away our freedom and our kind...one by one ...
*Red Feather is a very proud stallion, that lived in the wild on the beaches of Virginia/North Carolina until March 2004, when he was captured and placed on our rescue farm in Virginia Beach. He had three babies hit and killed by vehicles in the Sandbridge community, one mare had a baby born dead after the mare was hit by a vehicle.
He would not stay in the North Carolina/Currituck Wild Horse Sanctuary and continued to roam through False Cape State Park, Back Bay Wildlife Refuge and the Sandbridge Community of Virginia until his herd had to be removed from the wild.
Red Feather and his four mares continue to live on our rescue farm in Virginia Beach until a wild horse preserve can be created for him and his herd.
Red Feather was one of the most magnificent stallions and a fearless fighter...one time he was seen biting the ear off of another bay stallion who was no match for him...
