    protests may work. will draw attention, hopefully. protests worked in 60s -70s, social changes came about! I still say..get the BLM under criminal investigation. guess u know at last audit of BLM the Inspector General found ‘wrong stuff w/ BLM’. great news in Wild Horses favor, except the animals are stressed & coping as well as they can in BLM captivity, on going. BLM ‘hot item’ as a whole! The foals are starving, you saw the photos, not good. I’m adopting, get her this weekend, then another. I think these are groups headed for slaughter. ?dunno? but pays to adopt presently! Why can’t nonprofits adopt? Is that legal?

    I really don’t see how protests and phone calls have worked at all. It is all about getting media attention so unless the protests make the news, no one cares and even then it is quickly forgotten.

    The damage is already done and the horses are not free anymore. I am starting to think that they are better off dead than to live in pens being neglected by the BLM.

    Bless you Kathy for adopting them. I wish they could all be adopted. By the way, does anyone know if Cloud is okay? Has anyone seen him since his release? I knew he was injured but it was thought that he should be fine.

    I volunteer at a registered non-profit horse rescue. We were going to adopt a wild mare last year. She was failing to thrive, and spent about a week with our vet. Unfortunately, she had to be euthanized. Her kidneys were about 1/4 the size they should have been. I don’t think any final papers were signed, since she never left the vet.

    We named her “Heart”. She was a sweet girl, and now runs with the herds across the Rainbow Bridge. She will never be forgotten.

    oh thanks, Mary! I got her today! We get along great. Horses seem to be real characters. She remembers the ’roundups’! her neck band was removed & i think it’s not too bad where it was. She ate for 5 hrs., non-stop…very hungry! Her ribs are showing but won’t take her long to adjust my place…seems ok! I think it’s the yearlings hungry @ BLM Fallon…I’m no equine expert!! Where is medicine hat, I hope they find him!
