The Purple Sage Riders 4-H club is taming and gentling a young BLM open-range mustang colt, which will be put on the auction block next month. The Valley of Plenty Quilters club stepped up to help provide for the care and feeding of the mustang during its training period with a check for $300.

Monies received by the sale of the mustang will go to sustain the 4-H group in its many projects. In presenting the check the Quilters said that “benefits of the program go to helping the wild mustangs and the young people in learning to deal with wild horses, and the whole community in having great young people.”
