Spirit, a mustang, was rescued by Hope Equine Rescue president, Dani Horton, years prior to starting the rescue. She was adopted out and eventually came back to Dani’s care. At that point, she decided to keep her in the care of the rescue as a permanent resident. Spirit enjoyed pasture life from that point on.
On April 15, 2014, Spirit and two other horses, were struck by lightning in their pasture.
