Mustang Sanctuary ‘Steadfast’ in Assisting Wild horses

By Bob Silbernagel

This is from today's Horseplay section of The Daily Sentinel

Paintbrush, a four-year-old mustang recently removed from the Douglas Creek herd in Rio Blanco County, was nervous with a handful of strangers hanging about. So he moved closer to the person he’s coming to trust — Tracy Scott.
Not a bad move on his part, because Scott will definitely reward that trust, not just for Paintbrush but for other mustangs. Scott has a lifelong love of horses, especially wild horses. And she and her husband, Blaine, are developing a mustang sanctuary called Steadfast Steeds on land they own on Glade Park.
The facility, just west of the Glade Park Store on 16 1/2 Road, will have a grand opening on May 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be demonstrations with some of the half-dozen mustangs that now reside at Steadfast Steeds, talks about mustangs and their needs, information on Equine Facilitated Learning and Coaching and music.
