Detailed Information:
When he surrendered at the Canadian/North Dakota border Sitting Bull's horses were confiscated and purchased by Marquis Medore, his land became Theodore National Park where the horses roamed free until it was fenced in and then the Park Service began to erradicate the Indian type horse by different methods, outbreeding, slaughter then selling them to public auctions.

One family took notice and began to purchase them at auction and the rest of the story is in the web site as well as a more detailed history.
