Meet Maggie


Maggie is a fine boned petite burro with light coloring. She is shy but will approach you. She is sensitive and kind.

Maggie was born in 1996 on the range in the Centennial Herd Management Area in Kern County, California.

She was captured from her home range in 2001 when she was 5 years old and pregnant.
While at BLM’s Ridgecrest holding corrals, she gave birth to a furry little Jack (male burro) later named Poncho.

Maggie and Poncho were adopted and soon after, brought to Return to Freedom’s American Wild Horse Sanctuary in October 2001.

Maggie and Poncho have been able to remain together and have joined 25 other burros who explore the rolling oak-studded hills at the sanctuary. Maggie can always be found near her son Poncho.
