Meet the Cerbat herd that calls Return to Freedom home...
How the Cerbat Herd arrived at Return to Freedom
Ambrassador Amante (Fiery Lover), Return to Freedom’s representative from this particular strain of mustangs, was born free in the Cerbat Mountains. After wandering off his range in search of mares, he was captured and held in a government corral for three years before arriving at Return to Freedom in 2003. Amante is a handsome example of this rare strain of American wildlife. Upon recommendation from Dr. Sponenberg, advisor to the Sanctuary, Amante has been paired with some Sulphur Springs mares, who are closest to the Cerbat phenotype, to give him back a natural herd environment and to encourage the continuation of his line.
