I want to thank the author, Steven Long. As he indicated on the Howling Rigdge call in radio spot, he really learned all of this in short order – wild horse issues were not very well known to him. But like so many others of us, some of us not even “horse people”, but concerned about the turn of events during the last 8 to 10 years and what is being done to our western heritage. He did an excellent job, and I will be recommending this particular edition as I talk to people to try to gain their interest.
I am finding that most people are appalled by what is happneig to our Public Lands, even if they don’t especially care about horses, they are distraught that the lands are getting all fenced off and checkerboarded, but even more than that – “money talks”, especially in this economy, and this is not rocket science to understand what is going on, and people are concerned about this horrendous waste for NO GOOD REASON.
I hope they are joining in after I talk to them, I do try to follow up without being pushy.
googled horse websites and found this one called Mary Nash Horse Slaughter Website – she has all the data on all the political crap since way back and she quotes margret mead – Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed its the only thing that ever has and another quote by baba dioum – we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, we will understand only what we are taught
parents teach your children about our great american heritage – the wild horse
This article, from http://www.animallawcoalition.org, dated 10-3-09, talks about new discussions taking place in Nebraska re “unwanted horse problem.” Isn’t Nebraska where the BLM takes some of its Eastern-bound horses?
