This commission to benefit Nevada's wild horses focuses on a little pony named Rambles.
Rambles was born in April 2011 on the Virginia Range. She and her mother were photographed from early in life by Anne Hall.
In 2012 Hall discovered the body of Rambles mother, who reportedly
died after being chased through a barbwire fence by ATV riders. Her
front legs had been broken among other injuries. Rambles was not
seen again and presumed to have died until she was spotted by Hall in
an online auction stockyard photo. She'd been picked up by the Nevada
Department of Agriculture.
Rambles was purchased at auction for $20 and needed special and medical care. It was decided to bring her to Johnye and Steven Saylor who have the Judy project animal rescue at their ranch.
Johnye was able to put a halter on Rambles the first day of working with her. Months of work and care seemed to help. Rambles biggest issue was her hind quarters. She had trouble getting up on her own.
Eventually Rambles gave into her injuries and cold no longer get up even with on going help from the Saylors.
The vet was called and various treatments were tried. Nothing helped and Rambles was put to rest and buried on the ranch. Rambles now reside at the Rainbow Bridge in heaven and is healthy and happy reunited with her mother.
