Fallon Livestock Exchange Sale

Advocates in the field report that the horses being sold in the Fallon Livestock Exchange sale on JULY 10th are those “impounded” by the state of Nevada from the West Wendover area (more details here) but that is not certain and determinations are still being made. These are unbranded horses and here are photos and the flier. There was some concern that these were Calico horses from the Fallon Broken Arrow/Indian Lakes Facility but that is not the case according to reports.  They are in need of good homes- please see flyer below.

    Do we know where these horses came from? That many horses-175- would probably have to be reservation horses or BLM, Is there a reservation in that area?

  2. Christine Says:

    How was it determined they were strays and not wild horses?

  3. Barbara Warner Says:

    Should the sale date be July 10 ?
    I bet these are wild horses. The state of NV has been persecuting them too for years .

  4. Marilyn Wargo Says:

    There is a mare with a big PZP type brand on her butt in the photo. Is this a photo of the West Wendover Horses? They could very well be wild horses off their HMA. The new gather schedule points out horses off HA or HMA. They are in the hands of NV Ag dept. They said they would hold them for ‘owners’ to come forward with brand proof and release to owners. This is a very short time to give people to get a horse back… if they were feral. mar

  5. Marilyn Wargo Says:

    Or maybe it is a branded gelding?? mar

  6. Linda Says:

    175 horses!?! Keeping them all out of the clutches of the killers will take big bucks or lots of individual buyers. Wish I had a better network to get the word out. Has anyone contacted Catherine Ritlaw? She seems to have a big address book, but I don’t know that for sure.

    By: BLM

    June 30, 2010 – A proposed Bureau of Land Management strategy for managing wild horses and burros on public lands will be discussed by the BLM’s Northeast California Resource Advisory Council when it meets Friday, July 9, at 10 a.m. at the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office, 2950 Riverside Drive in Susanville.

    The council will accept public comments at 11 a.m.

    The RAC will review and comment on draft goals, objectives and management actions contained in the proposed strategy that was released for public comments on June 3. The BLM will consider the public’s input as it prepares the long-term strategy that will be presented in a detailed report to Congress later this year.

      Somebody needs to attend this as a member of the Public.

      Anyone in that area???

      I don’t trust these RAC groups

    The horses could have been pushed on to this land from BLM so that they do not have protection. The wild horses don’t have boundaries. Horses on forest service, usda, or private land have no protection. I would not be surprised if contractors pushed them from BLM onto these lands. They would be wild horses off public lands for the most part.

  9. Janet Ferguson Says:

    My understanding from reading the 1971 Act is that wild horses are DEFINED by the fact that they are free-roaming AND unbranded. Therefore, any horse that FITS THAT DESCRIPTION is, by law, wild. Not sure they have to be “unbranded,” “free-roaming,” AND on public lands. . . . ?????? Maybe all three have to be in place. . .who KNOWS? Please comment if you do.

    The essential question is: what is the paper trail on the unbranded horses in this corral? Right? Someone correct me on this if I am wrong.

    Just ‘jumping in here.”

    Why can’t they just leave them alone?Seriously who and what are they really harming.They are more worried about these innocent horses that have roamed this area longer then we have then they are about the friggen illegals taking over the US>There are more of those bastards sneaking across borders,flying and boating in and breeding a hell of alot faster than these horses.It is costing the tax payers more money and land to support the illegals.
    I think it is high time the Americans stand up and start yelling about the injustice that is being shoved down our throats.


  11. Chelsey Says:

    Did any of these horses get adopted or were they just purchased by “killers”?

  12. Sarah Brandon Says:

    These horses going to be sold for slaughter, illegally from BLM
    STOP THEM!!!!
