Black Moon is a strikingly beautiful Black Sulphur Springs stallion. Of all the horses found free ranging on the American range, the Sulphur Springs horses have the most similar DNA to the primitive Iberian Sorraia horses. True to his iberian descent this pure black horse looks like a Lusitano stallion. He is magnificent and 100% wild.
He was captured in February 2015 outsode of his home range in the Sulphur Springs Herd Management Area in Utah. Because of the drought, wild horses and burros, like all free ranging wildlife, are forced to wander across the boundries of their defined Herd Management Areas (HMAs) in search of water and food. In February 2015, 100 wild horses were removed from the range where they had been wandering into the road.
#5398, NOW Black Moon, is a 20 year old Black stallion, RTF made sure that this stallion who has spent his entire life in the Utah Mountain wilderness, would not end up falling through the cracks. He and a 15 year old Bay stallion (#5422), who we have now named Merlin, had no bids at all and faced an uncertain future, so we spoke up for them and had them brought to the sanctuary. We did geld the Bay stallion, now . He has a difficult time seeing and may be almost blind and depends on Black Moon alot.
Caring for senior horses costs an estimated $2600 per year which does not include Veterinary care. Horses at the sanctuary often live well into their thirties.
