    HOW DO WE SEND THIS TO OUR FRIENDS THAT ALSO WANT TO SIGN THE PETITION? I DON’T SEE ANYWHERE ON THE PAGE THAT TELLS HOW.
    I SEE A “TELL A FRIEND” CATAGORY AT THE TOP, BUT DOES THAT SEND THE PETITION?

  2. LOUIE COCROFT Says:

    SO, THERE ARE STILL THE ANTELOPE SLATED ROUND-UP AND THE McGAVIN PEAK SLATED ROUND-UP, BY THE FOREST SERVICE TO SEND COMMENTS TO–RIGHT?

  3. LOUIE COCROFT Says:

    AS I LOOK BACK THROUGH THE PAST COMMENTS, I SEE MORE AND MORE SIGNING ON.

    Such nonsense. If I had 670 THOUSAND acres to live on I’d do just fine I think.

    We know that the BLM will opt for the lower number of horses in this HMA.

    A lawyer friend of mine told me the other day when I was talking to him about this (he’s not exactly into horses but has read about our rallies. I was very impressed by this.)–and his comment was

    “I’ve really tried to see your point but my head is so far up my arse (insert the other word) that I just can’t.”

    I would say that about sums up the BLM.

    I read an article in the Fort Worth Star Tribune today on Madeline Pickens that said there are only 9000 plus wild horses in short term holding facilities. There was no place for comments but I did send an email with the corrections and since the Star is finally responding I directed him to TCF. Keep your fingers crossed.

    THIS IS WHAT OFTEN HAPPENS AND WHY ADOPTION IS NO SUCH A GOOD OPTION FOR THE HORSES OR BURROS:
    Mustang Stallion – Abandoned

    Date: 2010-01-14, 3:27PM

    This horse was abandoned by his owner of 6 years, when she had to move. I offered to help her out and board the horse, the asking price is the amount she owes for the care of the horse. I already have 2 horses, and my property isn’t big enough for 3 horses. He is not gelded, he needs work. His owner just kept him as a pet, and never had him trained. He is about 12 hands tall, Champagne Dun, brand on hip, saddled only once, good project for experienced horsemen only! Please email if you need more info. Thanks!!!

    The Mustang Rescue Ranch is having an open adpotion.. WE ARE A NON PROFIT RESCUE…we have 13 horses that we need to place NOW..

    This madness over the horses and do they or don’t they need to be forced off their range for all those unscientific reasons has just become a farce that the horses pay for in loss and we pay for with tax money. The disconnect between citicizens and this administration and compassion is staggering. There will be more great expanses of horseless range as the numbers dwindle to nothing. As the BLM biologist said last fall; “There is no place for wild horses in the ecology of the West.” BLM is seeing to that. mar

    i live in apple valley, calif and someone in penney saver had a wild horse to give away free

    on another note would like to write or email the prior adminstration – they are responsible more so for the crap the horses are suffering

    I have just purchase book “The Waste of The West” by Lynn Jacobs. This book is a classic for all wild horse advocates. I hope this author is still doing field work.

    I have sent several copies to friends across America. I have read and looked over the pictures and agreed with it’s author conclusions.

    I have concluded that the negative things they say about wild horses sound more like cattle grazing on the great western plains. I never knew cattle grazing was so distructive to all plants, animals small/large and even humans.

    I think they need to ship the cattle to the midwest and let the wild horses stay at home / out west. I am protesting wild horse gathers.
