Second Foal Loses Hooves Then Put Down

Breaking News: Horseback MagazineSecond Foal Loses Hooves Then Put Down Nevada BLM Action

BLM Report– 27 deaths to date

Foal laying down last week, put down over weekend- photo by Laura Leigh

By Steven Long

HOUSTON, (Horseback) – The federal Bureau of Land Management confirmed today that a second foal has died at their hands after losing its hooves possibly from being driven down a Nevada mountainside by a roaring helicopter.

“Apparently there has been one more foal that was euthanized because of hoof Sloughs,” BLM spokeswoman JoLynn Worley of the agency’s Winnemucca office toldHorseback Online.

The agency classifies the 1669 horses it has rounded up at the current Calico Mountain gather as “excess.”

Horseback has asked for the report of the BLM veterinarian who treated the foal. The foal died Saturday after two weeks of treatment. Worley has said she will post the report on the website when it becomes available.

Activist and videographer Laura Leigh noticed the foal laying down last week during a visit to the BLM hospital site. She had found the animal a caregiver outside of BLM control, however, it was too late.

According to a website set up for the current Calico roundup citing day to day progress on the capture of wild horses, the bureau acknowledges 27 deaths since the “gather” began on December 28th.

The BLM also admits that 20 to 30 mares have miscarried since late December.

Helicopter induced roundups have consistently resulted in wild horse deaths according to BLM statistics released late last year to Horseback Magazine.

In 2008, 45 percent of the roundups resulted in at least one fatality, and on one in Nevada, 27 horses died. The total number of deaths through injury or for other reasons totaled 126 animals that year.

The 2009 percentage of dead horses on BLM roundups is slightly worse at 46 percent resulting in at least one horse death. In July, a Wyoming gather proved fatal to 11 horses

Over the two years prior to the 2010 roundup season a total of 205 horses died at the agency’s hands

In BLM roundups, horses are often driven down miles of rocky slopes by a roaring helicopter. Such was the case in Wyoming this year when 11 horses died at Coconut Creek when 349 horses were caught.

Hope Springs Eternal  (A Eulogy)  By Laura Leigh

HOUSTON, (Horseback) – On January 22, 2010 I was given a tour of the Fallon holding facility after my observation days (Calico gather) had been cancelled by weather twice.

I had witnessed the gather on January 16, and met Gene Seidlitz (Winnemucca district manager) and Heather Emmons, both of the Bureau of Land Management. Both appeared to be very willing to accommodate and provide access in as transparent a manner as possible Gene spoke to me many times about the concept of finding areas for dialogue and co-operation. I had hoped to write an article based on that concept.

On January 22, Seidlitz and Lisa Ross, BLM public relations coordinator for Calico gather met me at the agency’s Fallon facility. John Neill is acting BLM manager at Fallon. I was given free access to photograph and ask questions. I was also allowed to videotape the “hospital” facility at Fallon. I soon saw a row of small pens near the entrance to the facility next to the area being built to process horses. The plywood for windbreaks was stacked but not installed.

The pens held mostly foals and a few mares. Each horse I saw demonstrated some form of lameness. Many had bandages on their legs. Of particular concern was a foal that would not rise when approached.. His eyes were glassy.

Over the next few days I made several attempts to gain information about that foal. I sent e-mails to Gene, Lisa, and John. I was told the foal was up the very next day and doing well. Information I found hard to believe because I did not think he would even make it through the night. I requested a vet report and was told I would have it as soon as one was available. I requested that the foal be released to me and I would facilitate his placement into a facility that could properly care for him. The request was denied, the BLM saying it was not needed.

I named him “Hope Springs Eternal.” I began to make inquiries to find a facility to bring him to. He would have a home.

Several more conversations with John Neill continued to assure me the foal was fine. John said he was busy and if I did not get the vet report to please call him again.

I called today. I was told the vet report is online. It’s not. He was euthanized Saturday because his hooves had begun to slough.

My emotions are many:

So much for a timely exchange of information. So much for the concept that the “guys on the ground” are any different than the guys in DC, something they want you to believe. So much for the idea that co-operation toward problem solving with the best interests of the horses at its heart will ever be a reality. So much for “ Hope Springs Eternal.”

The baby I saw on January 22 was in incredible pain to the point that, as a wild animal, he could hardly lift his head as a strange human, a potential predator, approached. All the others rose and limped away. This baby languished in that facility with no windbreak in agony. A baby that had a chance if the humans involved could have attempted to create an opportunity to work together. Releasing that foal would have cost the BLM nothing… and maybe created the sensation that somewhere in this madness a spirit of humanity could overcome this battle of obstinate adherence to outdated bureaucratic protocol. I had “Hope.”

Little spirit you are now free of this administration’s unwillingness to recognize your worth. “Hope Springs Eternal,” rest in peace. You are loved.

    If any one of us in the private sector intentionally ran our young horses so hard that their hooves seperated from bone, we’d be prosecuted for animal cruelty. The police show up at the door and arrest us for this kind of crime.

    The BLM can get away with this kind of behavior, at our taxpayer expense, with no legal consequences whatsoever — and they’re committing these crimes for the good of the horses. ??

    Does anyone have an update on legal action against the BLM, how it might include cruelty to animal charges?

    • Marilyn Wargo Says:

      Laura, it is like the aftermath of at a battlefield with the weak and wounded and dying. Please take care and remember there are many who know what you are doing and we appreciate it. Your candor in this eulogy cuts through to the needs and finds the short falls. Thanks, mar

    • Marilyn Wargo Says:

      Nora, From what I gather, the Cattoors have become the co dependent to the BLM and the BLM is the enabler to the Cattoors terrible and unchallenged contract. This relationship now goes back decades and is grounded in incompetence and greed. These people never attempted, and were never asked, to improve upon the deadly methods they use. The BLM has been unrepentant and protective of their favored contractor. In my opinion this deadly combination has much to do with how the roundups have escalated. Despite conflict of interest, Sue Cattoor has ‘testified’ to the humane use of helicopters in the roundup process. BLM is the broken machine we see at work now, unable to amend itself for the wrong done. So many bad choices become a work of pure denial. mar

      • Nora Morbeck Says:

        It’s an unhealthy relationship, that’s for sure.

        One of the big problems is that the consequences of the inhumane treatment/trauma aren’t dealt with by the BLM or the Cattoors. They don’t see how it surfaces later in these horses, or how dangerous it can be to work with traumatized animals. With a lot of patience and the right training methods, you can work past some of the reactivity that these horses have to things like plastic bags on whips, corral panels, trailers and so on. But how do you ever work through fear of “monsters” in the air? You can’t introduce horses to helicopters during training sessions to get them accustomed to these loud, scary objects hovering over them. There’s no way to re-teach or reassure them that they won’t be harmed by low flying aricraft.

        There’s nothing humane about terrifying animals. Sue Cattoor needs a new dictionary.

        NO ONE that can do anyhting to stop this is doing anything about this!!!!!!! I would be in jail for 1 instance of this kind of abuse, and it just keeps on happening w/absolutely NO ramifications; 2 babies dead after suffering god only knows how much pain and misery; how was this baby “euthanized?” was he shot to death, too?
        So, now we have 2 babies to hold in our hearts in our vigil tonite;
        How do these people keep straight faces as they say the same LIES over and over, do they think we aren’t noticing???

      • Marilyn Wargo Says:

        Yes, That people can stop this and have not is reprehensible. That the abuse is accepted for no damn good reason sets a new low for our government. That this is visible will come back and smack these killers in the chops. It will remain very visible abuse as long as we can keep up the campaign and our quest for justice. None of this is acceptable. We can and will win. Just you watch us BLM. mar

    I have no words, my heart is breaking!!! Run free “Hope Springs Eternal” you are in a place where you will never experience abuse or pain ever again and we will use your strength to keep up our fight to put these SOB’s where they belong.

  6. Ginger Leilani Chapin Says:

    I am angry, outraged, horrified to learn about the ignorance that the BLM operates its bureaucracy with.
    Why such indifference and downright stupidity within the BLM when it comes to BASIC, elementary horse care?
    Why so many unnecessary, agonizing deaths? Is there anyone at the BLM who can walk and chew gum at the same time?
    These nazi-style, bloody round-ups are costing the taxpayer into the billions of dollars in wasted money.
    As an American, Taxpayer, and educated voter, I am NOT accepting this crude mismanagement of our ecology.
    This is an environmental disaster at the Taxpayer expense.
    Leave the horses in the wild, where they are safe, healthy, happy, and are IMPORTANT to the natural diversity of the ecology. OUR WILD HORSES ARE INDIGENOUS TO THE NORTH AMERICAN CONTINENT!
    This is not an acceptable use of our tax dollars, and to boot, it is unethical, inhumane, and cruel.
    All Americans stand up and be a voice for these beautiful and sentient living beings. My God, we must write, email and call our own State Senators and demand accountability and ALL BLM round ups to stop.

    Hope Sprins Eternal? could that be Little Courage that I named last Fri night? after being sick for the better of a week because the BLM ran the feet off a little one.

    Now they’ve run the feet off a second foal.

    God help me but these people are such rear ends and the stuff that comes out of them.

      Hello; I just cannot believe the BLM leaves a sick colt lying out in the straw!

      a. where is the foal’s blanket ? b. where is the foal’s shelter from biting insects and flies ? c. where is the foal’s shelter from wind…rain…snow…sleet

      b. most importantly: WHERE IS THE FOAL’S FEED ? What is this Foal eating ? WHERE IS THIS FOAL’S IV NUTRITION; WHERE IS THIS FOALS PELLETS? Where is this foal’s water ? this foal’s hay; this foal’s hay cubes ?
      you can soak portion hay cube in water and put the cube in the foals mouth

      WHO THE IN GOD’S HOLY NAME IS FEEDING THIS FOAL ? IS THE BLM SAYING THEY LEAVE A FOAL OUTSIDE WITH NO SHELTER ; NO FOOD AND NO WATER ? no wonder the Foal cannot stand up ! this is bull crapola

    Today’s episode of ‘Ammo for Advocates’:
    In his widely publicized paddling-on-the-popo of the Advocates for their lack of reasoning skills, HRH Salazar extolled the virtuous Congress and it’s passing of the Wild Horse and Burro Act as the vessel of salvation for bringing the Wild Ones back from the brink of extinction.
    Silly boy…
    Velma Johnson lobbied for passage of the Act to stop the use of (this is a giggle, folks) AIRCRAFT IN THE HERDING OF MUSTANGS AND TO STOP THE PRACTICE OF ‘MUSTANGING’, i.e. ROUNDING UP ENTIRE HERDS, LOADING THEM INTO TRUCKS, TRANSPORTING THEM OVER LONG DISTANCES AND SELLING THEM TO SLAUGHTERHOUSES AND RENDERING PLANTS.
    Now, with the exception of directly selling Captives to slaughterhouses and rendering plants, somebody with a saner and more reasonable temperment than mine tell me, PLEASE – what the hell’s the difference??!

  9. morganjservices Says:

    Innocent life lost. Waste of potential resources. What for I ask? WHAT FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA? Why do you give billions more to a filthy and corrupt federal agency that cannot substantiate ONE piece of data for why they do what they do with taxpayer dollars? Could it be that you approve government sanctioned exploitation of taxpayers and their hard earned dollars? Could it be that the trail of corruption leads all the way to your OWN backdoor of the White house?

    Look at that baby lying there dying in the frozen dirt, dying, without a soul to offer aid. Those idiotic freaks are only around to spout digusting & sarcastic remarks when the advocates are filming or attempting to assist a down Mustang. Just watch. The BLM agent reports will be doctored up to tell a tall tale of how much care was given to this colt too, like the other, to make sure it survived. Do you see any bandages on his hooves in the photo? Do you see any bedding to provide comfort? Do you see ANY nourishment near this blessed creature who can no longer drag himself to food and water?

    They bute them every three or four days. That’s it. The claim is that the “trauma” for a wild animal to be separated would kill it.

    I offered … and offered… to take him.
    I called, called, e-mailed.
    I was told he was “fine.”

    I told them I wanted to see the vet report… over a week ago. Still no report.

    I’m sick over this… and all the other injured, displaced…

      I received a regular thank u and short note from Rep. Himes; saying: “after careful study Rep. Himes had decided to be a co-sponsor of the ROAM Act;

      then I wrote Mr. Himes via Representative Himes . gov @ “contact us: and today I received another letter from Rep. Himes saying he is listening to my comments etc. So this is why I think you and I and anyone should send this story about the poor precious Soul of a Foal being literally “left to perish;

      I think we should’ maybe this foal; and the downed mares can STOP THE BLM from another roundup ONCE THE PEOPLE AND GOV. SEE THIS PIX !

    Live grassroots conversation with the President online Feb 4th. Do you think we could get through with opening questions about DOI budget, domestic spending and then onto BLM—
    I personally spent time in my Republican small town handing out Obama literature, phone banking, etc and now we can’t get through to even an aide. I was put on hold and finally gave up the last time I called. Maybe the next step is to contact the Democratic National Committee and ask why the grassroots don’t matter anymore.

    • Laura Evans Says:

      This may be the exact story to use for this. The fact that Laura repeatedly offered to take him and they repeatedly turned her down. The fact that she has repeatedly asked for the vet report and still has not received it. It’s the complete lack of responsibility that the BLM has shown regarding the animals in their care all wrapped up in a nutshell. Their indifference towards what’s best for these animals and their flat out refusal to allow another option is all there, plain to see in this little baby. And they have cost him his life.

      • Anne Says:

        Yeah; that is blatant obvious cruelty to a Foal; no nourishment or shelter! SAD

    I go to that place of disgust, loss of hope and tears every single day of my life from the time that I wake up until the time i go to sleep when I have nightmares I spend a lot of time wondering if there is a God and if there is why he doesnt help so many of us who care. Unfortunately unless we stand up I think that the darker side is winning, I see that every day around me too, people just dont care anymore, they are more concerned about how they look to others, their personal appearances, their personal “happiness”, their drugs, everything artificial in their lives, even to the detriment of their own children and families. Corruption, Delinquency and evil are winning over at the moment and WE HAVE TO PUT A STOP TO IT. It is just not easy and we have to stay strong amongst ourselves. Just seeing the people who comment and care on this and a few other blogs and message boards restores some of my faith in the human race. Hang in there everyone, it is going to be another long day but we have some wonderfully strong and determined people on our side and they will show us the way we need to go and we will win!

I’m just trying to get as much info as possible before I send another e-mail to my Senators and the HSUS. Also, I just tried to access the veterinarian report on the BLM website for the first foal whose hooves sloughed off and was unable to…”the webpage cannot be found”. Interesting. It was available to read a day or two ago.

  16. true15 Says:

    Is there any reason that external vets could not be volunteering their efforts to save the animals? What about raising funds for vets to go and dedicate their times to assist the ones in need?

    • jan eaker Says:

      I don’t think the BLM would allow independent vets to come to the holding pens. It was difficult enough to get an independent humane observer there, when she was videoing the older mare that went down, BLM tried hard to get her to stop filming. They really don’t want the world to know what goes on at these places.

    • Karen L. Says:

      I would think that the HSUS could strong-arm the BLM into allowing Humane Society vets to “assist”. Private volunteer vets probably would not be allowed; once they saw the carnage they’d never stop talking.

  17. true15 Says:

    “timely exchange of information” are used as a mean to gain time and decide how to present the issue to the general public.
    In other words, instead of having an open discussion, time is being used to discuss PR ways to deal with the problem.

      Or… in “time” to have the desired effect.

    Here is the report on the first foal:

    January 22, 2010
    Black Rock East
    History and Report on Sloughed Hoof Foal

    This foal was received at the Indian Lakes contract holding facility from the Calico complex gather around 1/6/2010. He was feed and watered for a day and when noticed to be lame was removed from the general population and placed in a hospital pen with other lame horses. On 1/8/2010 this horse (and all others in the pen) were treated with phenylbutazone (a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) and penicillin (an antibiotic) for presumptive sole bruising and abscesses. No abscesses were noted at this time but there was some foot swelling suggesting hoof trauma. During the next 5 days the colt which was nine months old was fed and watered in the hospital pen and observed for body condition and lameness. He was retreated on 1/13/2010 with phenylbutazone and penicillin. Sole abscesses and potential hoof sloughs were noted. Both hind feet were flushed with betadine ( an antiseptic and bandaged with gauze, antibiotic ointment and tape. The colt was slightly improved after treatment but over the next couple of days spent more and more time lying down. On 1/18/2010 the 2 hind feet were examined again. Multiple hoof sloughs were noted and the foal was euthanized for humane reasons. The cause of these hoof abscesses/sloughs was most likely hoof trauma from the gather operations.

    • Laura Leigh Says:

      I’d like all you all to note the dates of “treatment.”
      1/8, 1/13, 1/18.
      If you had a lame horse (potential stress founder) is “ibuprofen” every five days the treatment plan you would follow if your vet gave it to you?
      You’d find a new vet.

    • morganjservices Says:

      Uh huh. I knew this report was coming. Take a look at the picture Mr. Vet R. Sanford. Do you see any signs of medical attention being administered? Does this look like a ‘hospital pen’ to you? How much were you paid, Mr. Vet, for this understated report?

      • Laura Leigh Says:

        This report is the first foal, not the one in my photo.

        I still have NOT received the report on him. I received this one as his “care” would have been the same. I am still waiting….
