Yes, and it is hoped that people will respect this and not bid against anyone who has requested a horse. These horses have been under the watchful gaze of people who really care and who are all altering their lives in preparation for these horses to be brought to a good home and saved from BLM captivity. Driving up bids in this situation will be noticed by the advocate community and remembered. mar
There MIGHT be some bidding for the Curly stallion, as the Curly Mustang Association board members have JUST found out about this sale. I would hope that there would be understanding in that case. The same will likely be true for some of the adoption eligible Curlies (who all appear to be his get, anyway! 🙂 ) . I will let them know the stallion is already spoken for, tho.
yes, louie and ASPCA is on board as reported, I received and email from them this morning, they were quite critical of this roundup and BLM, then received same email from a fellow dog rescuer who had received the same email, so, the power base is growing!
can we believe blm postings that they are making water drops to the horses in the area where the roundup was on saturday i sure hope so – apparently they will only do it for a few days and then round the several hundred head up – more deaths will surely occur – so glad that humane soceity and other humane groups are finally coming on board and that jane velez mitchell is covering it on her news – hope more networks will pick up story and demand to see what the blm is really doing – i know american people fed up with bp – look at the damage in the gulf – wildlife there may never recover and do they want to now build a pipeline across 8 western states – think of the possible pollution – i am now hoping that more horse people will write and call – but write letters, emails can be deleted – keep up pressure on the blm – got several emails today that more groups are doing just that
As Ginger & Makendra know, I’m a avid WH&B advocate in CA & I’m volunteering to put together a national/statewide database of WH advocates/supporters for better communications with one another, organization & to offer more take-action suggestions. The first goal is to connect advocates together by state to build statewide teams.
