Sulphur Springs Herd

Sulphur Springs HerdThe Sulphur Springs Herd at Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary is one of the few to be able to claim direct Spanish Heritage. The pure Sulphurs are of Spanish origin, based on phenotype and blood-typing. Many have distinctive dorsal and leg striping, and resemble the horses painted on cave walls dating back to 26,000 B.C.E., along with their Portuguese Sorraias, their Spanish cousins (Dr. Sponenberg, Virginia Tech).

These horses received their name for the area where they are found, the Sulphur Springs Herd Management Area in the Needle Mountain Range of Southwestern Utah. Return to Freedom has 2 family bands in our Sulphur Springs herd. One is lead by Chief, a magnificent dun stallion, the other by Bear, a stunning grulla stallion.
