Meet the Sheldon Herd

Gila Herd

In 2000, Return to Freedom collaborated with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to relocate more than 50 wild horses in their intact family herds from the the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge, a 575,000-acre wilderness in the northeast corner of Nye County, Nevada. The horses are descendants of draft horses who worked hard to develop ranchos in Nevada’s Great Basin and cavalry horses raised in that region during the 1920s and 1930s.
