Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary
From her early days as a foal to now as an adult, Medicine Hattie goes back and forth across the Cheyenne River to the wild side of the Sanctuary. Her band is made up of her daughter who is a roany black with a large blaze, Annie, Hope, several other wild mares with their daughters and a gelding.
Since the time I wrote about Medicine Hattie in an article for Highlights for Children, the white mare with medicine hat markings has been a favorite of children who come here expecting to see her. Hattie has a way of never staying long in one place. One afternoon she will be grazing quietly beside the tourist road, the next morning she will be miles away, blending with the clouds on the highest ridge top, and those who planned their vacation around coming to see the mare will go away disappointed. She is as restless and unpredictable as the Spring breeze. And then, quite suddenly, there she is again, as though she had not been away.
