The relaxing process on NUNKI began with some ear rubbing and a favorite, rubbing the inside of a hind leg.
Even in her lame state, she was willing to rest on the injured left front leg for the short time it took to get her relaxed

Frank Bell, a professional horse whisperer did the shot, Milanne (Mimi) Rehor, head of Arkwild, Inc. and the
Abaco Wild Horse Fund, worked on the relaxation. Photos taken from a video shot by cinematographer Chris Nielsen.
