RIP, Garnet Pasquale

Rest is not for one such as Garnet, a person her friends called a “warrior woman,” tireless in her efforts to protect mustangs, particularly in her home state of Nevada.

Garnet contacted me a few years ago to learn about documenting mustangs and about PZP. As mentor advocates had done for me, I passed that knowledge along to Garnet, and she developed tools to help form the Spring Mountain Alliance and offer solutions to protect their mustangs. “Paying it forward” gave me immense satisfaction.

Garnet’s friend Arlene said Garnet would give us nudges to keep us moving in the right direction. Coming up on the one-year anniversary of the passing of my mustang friend Pati Temple, I can vouch for the truth of that. These warriors still are in the fight.

Heaven is richer for these angels we’ve called friends, and for sweet girl Ryah, who joined them today.

Your nudges are felt.

While I didn’t personally know Garnet, I met her 3 years ago at the Equine Conference in Washington, D.C. She was a spitfire and obviously passionate about her beliefs. She will be missed by all wild horse advocates, but moreso by her friends and family in NV.

Who is Ryah?

Garnet will be greatly missed, indeed.

Ryah was a beloved four-legged friend of a dear friend who adopted one of our Spring Creek Basin mustangs.

Tears and hugs and RAIN on the Chinese New Year of the Horse’s beginning.

Thank God for the rain. Mud is welcome, welcome, welcome! Just a little, but such a relief.

Who is Ryah related to?

Sorry for the confusion. Ryah wasn’t from Spring Creek Basin.

You’ve said everything so beautifully TJ about Pati and the horses and your friend Garnet. I’m sorry not to have known Garnet, but am thankful for advocates like her.
