A 6th grade class in Colorado Springs just sent a whole folder of letters to us to take to Washington next week. These letters are inspiring and remind us again that not saving these horses is not an option. We hope to have these up on our website soon, but here is just one for tonight:
Dear Mr. Ken Salizar,
I hope you will understand my request to pass the R.O.A.M. bill. Montana’s wild horses deserve the right to be free. They have lived in this area for generations, and it is the only home they have ever known. Please do not let what happened to the buffalo many years ago, happen to these beautiful animals. It is our duty as human beings to protect and preserve this habitat for them.
These horses need space to run, fresh green grass to feed on, but most of all to continue to be free. Please stop capturing them and putting them in cages. This is extremely cruel, and they don’t understand what is happening to them. Please listen to all the horse lovers of this country, and do the right thing. -Katerina, 6th grader
