Yes it is a direct question; perhaps more clarification on what I’m asking for will help you out. Do you care if Wild Horses and Burros retain their protections as American icons of the West?. Think about this carefully as if you answer Yes to this question, you will have many sleepless nights, perhaps tears for them? That of course depends on how deeply you care about them. For me, I have loved horses from a very early age, have owned many, ridden many, yes even a Mustang was once mine too. Of all the horses I owned my gelded Mustang was the horse with the most personal look in his eyes, a certain way of carrying himself, clear in his intentions, beautifully wild bucking when in the pen for exercise and careful when under saddle. But enough on my Mustang, I could say so very much more about him. So looking into the past weeks on what is happening to our American icons, amidst all of the other issues happening in our World and around the World; our icons of Freedom are being ganged up on by cattle associations, the HSUS (Human Society of the United States), the BLM (Bureau of Lame, oops sorry…Bureau of land management), and to the surprise of some RTF (Return to Freedom) whom is an advocacy group now against their protections; strange bedfellows for sure. They are all in agreement of more removals, more use of chemical sterilizations (PZP), of which is a huge subject that cannot be covered in this post. Here is a link to the proposed plan endorsed by– WASHINGTON–The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®), Return to Freedom Wild Horse Conservation, the Humane Society of the United States, and the Humane Society Legislative Fund, in concert with rangeland management stakeholders, today announced their support for a proposal on the care of wild horses and burros on U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) public rangelands. (HSUS Emily Ehrhorn).
The proposal is an accelerated end to this species, their freedom gone, their families separated and pushed into totally unnatural environments. Shame on all of these organizations. We must push back! call your representatives. Go to our Advocacy page for phone numbers and or the links for more information. God Bless America, and God Bless Americas Horses and Burros, protect and preserve ALL OF THEM.
