    It’s way past time Advocates were given a victory!

    Well done!, curious as to why the finding of no impact on the Nepa was dropped, unless this is in relation to the gather being already completed-making it moot…I see these administrative decisions such as Nepa and the RMPs which set the stage for the AMLs as the weak link in the BLMs efforts to eliminate the horses..It seems all of their decisions could be found arbitrary and caprious, but I do in particular find the decision to build this fence as a purely retalitory and individual decision.

    Sandra, retaliate for sure, by BLM. And no coincidence almost to the date of the Cloud/Pryor Mt. roundup one year ago, Sept. 3, 2009. CLOUD! How he did not follow the Judas horse, instead, turned and faced the helicopter!! Then slowly led his mares into the waiting chute. And upon release, kept herding his mares to not take off for the hills and home! He wanted the rest of his family with him released from BLM hell. Unbelievable! So beautiful! Intelligence, caring…COURAGE!

    “To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.

    What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places — and there are so many — where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.

    And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.” ~ Howard Zinn.

    Interesting documents…at least TCF et al have “standing” and are able to pursue the fence issue. This does appear to be progress.


    Way to go Cloud Foundation!
    Has everyone tried the phone “ring a round the rosie” when you call about the fence? You get the bureaucratic
    run-a-round and end up with “leave a message”. They don’t want to hear from us for some reason.
