As a serious student of horses and their place in our world, I take strong exception to the biased editorial: “Petition confirms horses aren’t wild” republished from the Elko Daily Free Press on July 19th. This fails to recognize the horse’s greater story/truth as proven by fair-minded scientists. Continue reading
” Today, I found out about something that is really bad, putting ALL of America’s Wild Horses and Burros in danger. For the last 3 months, we have been opposing SJR007, a Utah Senate Joint Resolution to have states lethally control Wild Horses and Burros. SJR007 is now a thing of the past, because today Representative Chris Stewart and Senator Orrin Hatch introduced an Act (The Wild Horse Oversight Act), that would amend the 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Free Roaming Act to have the states and registered Indian tribes, manage our Wild Horses and Burros in America.
This would mean no more BLM management (that follows set HMA regulation standards), but rather the Fish and Wildlife Service managing Wild Horses and Burros along with the States. This would also mean that the States could set the numbers for the amount of Wild Horses and Burros removed from the lands, rather than the Federal Government. If you know how the States operate, you will know that the number of Wild Horses removed would rise drastically, which could result in no more Wild Horses and Burros. Not to mention, it has not been disclosed how the Wild Horses would be removed, if they will be adopted, or even if they will be sold to slaughter. This is an absolutely HORRIBLE THING that we ALL need to act on NOW!!! The main motive that Stewart has is – he thinks there are too many Wild Horses on the land. This is absolutely untrue and unproven! “

I’m not willing to give this up Captain William E. Simpson! I’ve heard and read most of the lies that are told about the wild horses and burros by the BLM…how do they get away with that year after year? Why is it no one in Congress investigating this program?
Protect Mustangs™ has started an education and discussion forum on facebook to discuss the use of contraceptives on wild horses and burros.
The forum members have been exploring the pros & cons, myths & facts about Porcine Zona Pellucida (PZP) currently in use on America’s federally protected wild horses and burros on public lands.
Join the discussion in the group or just read the posts and documents there – it’s an open group and everyone is welcome to post the research they’ve found or just read and learn more about PZP and its various forms (Native PZP, PZP22, ZonaStat), research and study reports and much more.

Besides some of the comments made by ranchers, and Boyd Spratling DVM, BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory board member, I could not believe my eyes when I got to the end of the video and saw that Protect the Harvest and UNITED HORSEMEN made and produced this video! Continue reading
Wild horse preservationists have called into question the legality of the wild horse roundup in the checkerboard area of Wyoming which began Sept. 15.
Shelly Gregory with the Wyoming High Desert District of the Bureau of Land Management asserts the Wild Horse and Burro Act allows private land owners to request the BLM remove wild horses from their property.
“The BLM is respecting the rights of private land owners to operate their land as they see fit,” Gregory said.
Watch and listen carefully as the video posses excellent arguments about the markings on some of the wild horses and debunks the myth that all the wild horses are descendants of the Spanish horses set free in North America. Continue reading
