I have sat here and listened to you and Mar express your disbelief at what is happening to “our” wild horses. I have visited the Pryor horse and have followed them ever since. They are indeed a reminder of all the things we should hold sacred.
What the heck is wrong with a government that is for the people and yet they would let a government office like the BLM just run rampant?
I own four horses of my own and I have to be honest in saying that I let them run their own lives and do not interfere in what they want to do.
They are healthy and happy and they love me. Because I live in Ohio I couldn’t share my life with a Pryor Mountain mustang, as much as I would like to. I am currently looking for another BLM horse that I can adopt just to let it run free with my other horses.
Absolutaly– there are great folks following the burros and please, burro folks: I am happy to link to blog posts etc– the intent is to save all america’s wild equids! The Mojave desert burros are about to be lost forever– they are treated even worse than the horses are by the BLM
Yep. That’s what I read. The very last herd of Mojave desert burros will be rounded up in a matter of weeks and they will be gone forever. Something has got to be done. It sickens me to the marrow of my bones that the BLM harrasses this little creatures just to corral & destroy. This innocent animals have caused no harm, no damage no foul.
Please tell me what links to start reviewing so I can get to work on using my voice for them.
