But What Do They Eat
At long last Spring has Sprung! Wild horses are going wild for the little tufts of bunch grass that is popping up throughout the hillsides. They can’t get enough, and for good reason. Throughout the fall and winter, their diet is reduced to tumble weed and prickly, thorny dried up vegetation that any domestic horse would step over! The mustangs also help to keep down wildfires by eating the cheat grass that grows prolifically in the state of Nevada. As for water, seasonal creeks are meandering through the mountains and bringing life to the surrounding foliage.
Spring is a re-birth. Spring brings life to the landscape and renewed life for the wild horses that have survived on their own for a very long time! Their families keep them going. Now the landscape will help them to thrive so that we can enjoy seeing them as they grace the countryside.

Thankful for Wild Horses!
We continue to be thankful to be so lucky to see wild horses free-roaming out in the Virginia Range hills, canyons and valleys. We are also thankful for the many volunteers in the state of Nevada, and all the Western states, that work so hard to keep our American Mustang free! Thank you to the few political figures and members of Congress who truly support the wild horses. In most of the Western states, supporting wild horses is not politically correct. Although, the American people want to see horses remain wild and free. We are thankful to see stately stallions protecting their families. We are thankful to see colts play fighting with their cousins, and grateful to see magnificent mares nursing their young feisty foals.
One way to show our gratitude is to donate to one or more of the deserving non-profit advocate groups. Let ‘em Run Foundation, Wild Horse Preservation Fund and Wild Horse Preservation League are just a few small groups in Northern Nevada that work all year long to help the Virginia Range wild horses. Any amount is always greatly appreciated! Follow links on our website: http://www.RenoWildHorseTours.com. And click on the links on the right side of the home page to get more information about sponsoring a wild horse or how to donate.
Thank YOU for honoring and admiring the wild horses during your visit to Reno Nevada!

Our Pot of Gold – Our American Mustang (click on title)
“Somewhere Over the Rainbow, way up high
There is a land I heard of, in a lullaby
Somewhere Over the Rainbow, skies are blue
And the Dreams that you Dare to Dream, really do come True”
Somewhere Over a Summer Rainbow

We have noticed something about our visitors in the last four years. Families that want to observe the mustangs usually have animals, pets dogs or cats or both. Some are lucky enough to be horse owners. The people watch in wonder as they see family bands and bachelor bands grazing on a hillside or heading down to the watering hole. They always remark how beautiful they are.
They are not groomed or brushed; and the meager food they eat, has little nutritional value. Yet, the Mustang, in all their rugged beauty, inspires admirers from all who watch them. The young foals always bring a smile to our face. The interaction between the stallions raises eyebrows and our heart rate probably jumps a beat or two! It is such an honor when people from around the country return to Reno and want to see the wild horses again.
Watching wildlife, or even our domestic pets, bring us joy. There is something internally satisfying about our furry and feathered friends. But watching the horses, free roaming, and in their family bands is satisfying and a very special treat!
