Montana was part of the July 1996 Bureau of Land Management round-up of wild horses in Nevada. The horses were rounded up to be sold at auction, and if they were not healthy, a worse fate awaited them. Annie and her friend stepped in to help bottle feed and care for the over 100 foals that had been brought in. They were all between only one and three days old. The babies had to be bottle-fed, round the clock, for the first weeks of their lives.
