The MSSPA was privileged to have coverage of the Neglected 20 herd and the Maine Three’s return to the wild documented by News Center Maine. Former 207 anchor Peggy Keyser and Emmy-winning photojournalist Kirk Cratty spent several days at the farm over the course of a year to tell the story of these rescued horses. Watch the journey full circle, from the 20 horses arriving at the farm on July 14, 2021, to the release of the Maine Three mustangs back into the wild at Skydog Sanctuary in Oregon on June 20, 2022.


Thank you for supporting rescued horses. We truly could not do it without YOU!
