This one-eyed stallion wouldn't give up and neither did we.
Say hello to O.B.One (Obi-Wan), a stallion from the White Sands herd. O.B.One is an original member of the White Sands herd and once roamed the open spaces of the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.
When the U.S. ARMY and the State of New Mexico wanted all of the wild horses removed from the missile range, the ISPMB was there to oversee the safety of the wild horses. When the last of the White Sands herd was in danger of going to slaughter, the ISPMB was there to stop it. Read more at http://www.ispmb.org/WhiteSandsHerd.html
In 1999 the ISPMB saved the remaining White Sands herd, including O.B.One, and moved them to their South Dakota ranch. O.B.One was a free-spirited stallion among the White Sands herd; full of life and enjoying his new home on the ISPMB ranch.
For over 16 years, the one-eyed O.B.One was free to be among the herd and live a life of peace and safety; never to be rounded up again. He lost his left eye during a stallion fight but it has never slowed him down.
With old age and years of mock and real battles with other stallions, O.B.One started showing signs of slowing down. With his age estimated at 25 to 30 years old, the ISPMB kept a close eye on him, ensuring he was still an active and healthy member of the herd.
