Faith is a wild Mustang that was being kept in a pen at the Oregon BLM, Bureau of Land Managment, after a wild horse round up. Matt Livengood, a
naturalhorsemanship trainer and winner of the 2017 Reno Extreme Mustang Makover gladly took the challange to take this horse for 100 days, train her, compete with other trainers and their horses with the goal of making her avaiable for adoption. I met her two days after she arrived at Matt and Alaynes ranch in southern Idaho and I fully expected her to compete next month. She's a smart and beautiful mare but because of the trauma that I believe she endured in the round up, giving birth (we think) in the pens and then having her baby taken from her, her progress has been slower than the prior Mustangs Matt trained. 
Since I found out that she's not going to compete and I've been a part of her process to become adoptable I want to keep her from going back to the BLM horse pens and give her a good life outside of that reality. 
The Funds to keep her in Idaho will pay for her training, housing, feed, vetenary bills, and basic tack. This will pay fully for her care,  give her the chance at being trained by a natural horsemanship trainer that likes working with mustangs, and give her the best chance at having her adopted. We all want whats best for Faith. 

I've fallen in love with her and relate closly to her life experiences. My bond with Faith has grown and every time I see her she reminds me that I too have to have faith in my own process. Horses give so many of us the ability to grow in all the best human ways and she has done this for me and others that know her.
There was a time that my relationship to a mare named May helped me to save my life and I want to return the favor with Faith.
She deserves to have a happy and healthy life and share her beauty with others, not in a pen. 
 I'm an author, and have written a book about the profound healing nature of horses and know first hand about the transformative gift they give.
Help us to give Faith a home for the next year with great loving care. This also helps humans to understand and educate us about the story of the Wild Horses in our country. Horses give hope to humans through equine partnerships. Faith will need the funds within the next few months. I will pay them directly to her trainer and ranch

as we recive them. I thank you, Faith thanks you and the community and friends of the Sweet Pepper Ranch thank you!

We have raised 475.00 and thats a blessing, Thank you! Faith is ready to be adopted by anyone who meets the criteria of the BLM. It's a 1 year process. She is now willing to be haltered and that was the last piece to her gentling process. These funds will allow her to stay at the ranch in the care of her trainer and pay for all of her needs for a full year at our goal. If you or anyone you know is interested in adopting her contact me please. Being with a wild Mustang is nothing short of supernatural and touches me at my core. She has brought out the most tender and compassionate qualities of myself and she will in you too. God Bless and Happy New Year!
Please share Faiths story and thanks you
