Amazing!!!! Wild Horses Respond to Native American Drums

This is an amazing story which shows you how horses, even wild ones, are loyal to the end.  It is simply amazing to see how the horses interact with us and are our friends.  

We are all connected on this earth.  The horses were attracted by the beating of drums to the rhythm of the earth and hearts of the students.

Horses are AMAZING creatures!!  So what I want to know is,  why America wants to slaughter our incredible horses and friends!!!!!!!!  ~Declan

This week at Discovery News you can read about how horses remain loyal to their human friends. Jill Starr, the president and founder of Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue in Lancaster, California, whom I interviewed for the feature, shared a wonderful story with me, that I'd like to share with you now.
Starr works to save American mustangs and domestic horses from abuse, neglect and slaughter.

Her organization now includes Red Horse Nation, which helps Native American youths by enabling them to connect with the rescued horses through direct contact, teaching and more. During one program, student participants were allowed to select a specific wild horse for "gentling," meaning they could assist in taming and training that animal.
One sunny afternoon, when they had finished their tasks, the students and a few elders within their group brought a tribal drum to the site, much to the surprise of the instructors and staff.
"It seemed to just be a spontaneous happening," Starr told me.
The students sat around the instrument and began to chant and drum.
"When this happened, the horses followed the drums and, mesmerized, made a semi-circle around the students," Starr said. "Most of the kids were so involved in the drumming that they didn't notice, even though the horses had gathered just 12 to 20 feet away. It was so moving that many of us watching were crying."
Below is the only photo taken of that moment, just as the horses began to gather.
