Overview

The noble cause of animal welfare is highlighted in this true horse-rescue story. When the partnership for a well-respected sporthorse breeding program ended, one partner took his share of the horses and reestablished his successful breeding business in a new location. The other partner turned out the remaining horses on the 800-acre Yanci Ranch in Northern California and let them free-breed. Top-quality Appaloosas, Percherons and sporthorses immediately began producing offspring in a Wild West setting, resulting in hundreds of horses of all different sizes and colors, running free in the Coast Range foothills. The horses were semi-feral and lived off the land. Eventually there was a drought on the secluded ranch which resulted in a lack of pasture grass to support all the horses. The desperately hungry animals broke through the fences to find food. At that point, the plight of the hidden herd became evident, and some kind-hearted people stepped in to help. This compelling story reveals what happened behind the scenes at the remote property. The reader will get an inside look at an animal-rescue operation, and gain a deeper understanding about what it takes to help those in need.

Description
"A Land Filled With Horses" is a captivating true story that reveals the good in human nature. This book shares what happened when the partnership for a well-respected horse-breeding program ended. One partner took his share of the horses and reestablished his successful breeding business in a new location. The other partner turned out the remaining horses on the 800-acre Yanci Ranch in Northern California and let them free-breed. Top-quality Appaloosas, Percherons and sporthorses immediately began producing offspring in a Wild West setting, resulting in hundreds of horses of all different sizes and colors, running free in the Coast Range foothills. As the horses were living off the land, a severe drought harshly impacted the secluded ranch, and some kind-hearted people stepped in to help the herd. This book tells the amazing true story! The Yanci Ranch horses were semi-feral and struggled to survive the overcrowded conditions. Over the years, as the population of horses continued to increase, the landowners would send some of them to auctions. When the drought struck the ranch, the pasture grass drastically began to fade, reducing the food supply. The desperately hungry animals broke through the fences to find food. Throughout this book, readers will get an inside look at an animal-rescue operation, and gain a deeper understanding about the empowering experience of helping those in need. This is a must-read for those who love animals and appreciate a feel-good story.
