    This story is about a little pony named Rambles, and the commission to help Nevada's wild horses. Rambles was born in April 2011 on the Virginia Range, and her mother was photographed with her by Anne Hall. Sadly, Rambles' mother died in 2012 after being chased through a barbwire fence by ATV riders, leaving Rambles alone. She was not seen again until a photo of her was spotted in an online auction stockyard. She had been picked up by the Nevada Department of Agriculture.

    Rambles was purchased at the auction for $20, and because she needed special medical care, she was taken to Johnye and Steven Saylor's ranch, where they run the Judy Project Animal Rescue. Johnye was able to put a halter on Rambles on the first day of working with her, but it took months of care and attention to see any significant improvement. Rambles' biggest issue was her hindquarters, and she had trouble getting up on her own.

     Sadly, Rambles eventually gave in to her injuries and was no longer able to get up even with the ongoing help from the Saylor’s. The vet was called, and various treatments were tried, but nothing helped. Rambles was put to rest and buried on the ranch. Now, Rambles resides at the Rainbow Bridge in heaven, healthy and happy, reunited with her mother.
