A Land Filled With Horses: The Yanci Ranch
In this nonfiction book, “A Land Filled With Horses: The Yanci Ranch,” Robyn reveals a horse-rescue operation that took place on a secluded ranch in Northern California. Two men raised registered sporthorses on the remote, 800-acre ranch. But when they had a falling out, one partner left, while the other man allowed his share of spotted draft horses to run free and reproduce indiscriminately. It was estimated that 500 horses roamed freely on the ranch over a 17-year period. When a drought occurred, there was not enough pasture grass to support the herd and the animals broke through the fences in search of food. At that point, the plight of the horses became evident and caring people stepped in to rescue the semi-feral herd.
