Woman reunites with horse

When everyone was too busy and said they could not save the wild horse, Miko, an avid wildlife enthusiast, Emma, decided to help him. He was in a holding area for wild horses. The government officials had rounded them up and were holding them.

Soon, a ranch decided to adopt Miko and Emma went there to help them. First, she tried to touch Miko, but he was terrified of her. So she stood there quietly, and finally, the horse became curious and tried to get closer.

When she got back to the ranch next week, his ears perked up a bit, showing he wanted to interact. After that, Emma checked on Miko every week. Finally, after a few visits, he let her touch him. That was a big day for him.

However, when Emma visited him one day and could not find him anywhere, she asked the ranch owner where he was. She found out they had sold him because he was too much work. No one knew where he went.

Miko was gone. 2 years later, Emma got an email from a friend. The email had a Craigslist ad for a horse. The horse looked skinny; his hair was dull, and he had eyes wide with fear. But he had a white brand that Emma would recognize anywhere. It was Miko.

She immediately responded to the ad and drove 12 hours, one way, to California to get Miko. She had no idea if Miko would remember her, but Miko put his head right on her chest when he saw Emma. Emma drove him to his new home. The wild horse got so scared at the new house that he ran in circles. When Emma touched him, he would shake out of fear. The kind woman tried multiple trainers to help, but Miko would act out towards them.

So, she decided to train Miko on her own. They worked together every day for two years, and one day Miko allowed her to put a saddle on him. The duo now spends days exploring trails and beaches. The horse was tamed but happy. He was always glued to Emma and followed her everywhere.
