    THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH WORDS FOR SOMETHING SO WRONG AND SO CRUEL. THERE ARE, HOWEVER, PICTURES AND DOCUMENTATION, THANKS TO THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO GO OUT THERE AND TAKE THE BRUNT OF ALL THAT IS THROWN AT THEM. MAKE ALL AS PUBLIC AS POSSIBLE.

  2. Marilyn Wargo Says:

    In these recent photos I see a range just perfect for the horses. That they are gone and so few remain is simply a crime beyond words. We must right the wrongs done to our wonderful wild herds.

    Please do not stop protesting. Have another or a first and keep telling people what is happening. We need the activity and exposure and for the public to know the truth. Keep fighting people. mar

      I can almost hear “America the Beautiful” as I look at Craig Downer’s above photograph. Indeed, a perfect range, as Mar observed. We must continue to protest, fight, write, and speak for this cause. I am praying that God will “shed his grace” on America’s wild horses.

  3. Jan Eaker Says:

    Yes, Mar, keep fighting! we must, this land is so empty now,

    • Anne Says:

      best thing you can do for the Mustangs ! is send the Senators and Reps. Pix and essays; videos if poss.
      (+ to news stations; the jane velez report was great!
      thanks Louie ! A. conn. usa

  6. Anne Says:

    Thanks Craig ! i guess my top priority comment to you is:

    I see the Shrubs @ Calico Mountain are

    Tan; Brown; Light Brown; Dark Green: Orange; etc.

    The Term Calico means: White Black and Orange or Tan

    So the Term Calico where the Mustangs live does not mean

    Green

    so why does BLM give the Mustangs GREEN grass hay

    and not

    TAN DARK OR BROWN OR VERY GREEN OR RUSTY TYPE COLOR SUCH AS ORANGE TYPE FAUNA LIKE WILDFLOWER

    SO WHY DOES THE BLM VET RECOMMEND

    A SOFT TYPE OF GREEN FLIMSLY TYPE OF ORCHARD GRASS

    AND NOT A DEEP DARK SIMILAR TYPE OF TAN OR RUSTY COLORED HAY SUCH AS THEY WERE USED TO EATING?

    WILD MUSTANGS DON’T LIKE GREEN GOLF TEE TYPE HAY!

  7. Anne Says:

    ps and why does the BLM place these great big bales of
    Golf Green type Hay Grass; (which is NOT what they like…

    on the Outside of the gather pens and fences…

    where the Mustangs would scratch their muzzles to get to?

    Is the BLM purposely placing Hay too far from the Mustangs to reach and munch on ? as way to thin a herd?

    placing Green Bales around the pens as a “Placebo Effect ?

    “there’s too much confusion I can’t get no relief…said the joker to the thief…(jimihendrix’70)
    anne’s coment: John Neill is the Joker…Sanford is the thief

    after all Sanford has “robbed the spirits of many mustangs

    Senator John Salazar is coming up for re election this fall..How do the mustang and burro people in Colorado feel about his re election? Senator Barbara Boxer here in California is up for re election this fall.I won’t be voting for her unless she does more then write a letter to Salazar about the mustangs. One of her Aids said she doesn’t support a moratorium at this time.

  9. jan Says:

    who is john salazar is he related to ken salazar

  10. LOUIE COCROFT Says:

    I HAD NOT HEARD THAT ABOUT BARBARA BOXER–DOESN’T SUPPORT A MORATORIUM?
