Mrs. Pickens declared, "We will never turn an animal down." Mrs. Pickens breeds racehorses and she is a lifelong animal lover. She intends to open the refuge to the public, to let them experience the frontier life, living in cabins or teepees. “You shouldn’t be coming to this country to see Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck...We are more than that. We are a country that was formed on horseback and we should enjoy it, not slaughter it.”
God bless you Madeleine Pickens, even more.
