Elderly BLM STALLIONS recently gathered from Sulphur, Utah – found homes!

21 May

A WEDNESDAY FEEL GOOD STORY: The Elderly BLM STALLIONS recently gathered from Sulphur, Utah – found homes! – Horse and Man.

Lots of feel good stories from the previous internet adoption auctions, but this one was pretty exceptional – advocates and rescuers working together sharing photo posts about the horses and 2 jennies [Rosemary (necktag 5237) and Rosebud (necktag 5431), at Mantle Ranch which are on the upcoming internet adoption again] . I was totally surprised to see that all the elderly sulphur horses were adopted and some of them at sanctuaries.

Wild horse in holding at Elm Creek, NE Do you recall when several mares had been taken out of the auction? They were taken out because they were foaling. I found out a few hours ago that the ladies who won a few auctions and also arranged transport for the 3 sulphur sale authority stallions to go to the Black Hills of South Dakota …well the really GREAT news is that those two ladies have arranged that those mares and foals will be joining the stallions at Black Hills. Be sure to donate a couple bucks if you can.

Since the BLM WHB facebook page usually posts 5 or 6 horses available for the internet adoption auction on their page that may only help those 5 or 6 horses or burros. Photos are ‘deal clinchers’ – photos motivate – while words could be just too good to be true.  When horse lovers see a photo of a horse, if that’s the horse they’ve been hoping to have, they join the auction.  It’s the photos that motivates them to try to win that horse at the auction.

Join this facebook event if you want to help share photo-posts of the wild horses and burros in the June 2, 2015 -> BLM Wild Horse and Burro Internet adoption starting June 2, 2015

Comment sent to Bureau of Land Management,  Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board meeting held April 14 & 15, 2014, Sacramento, CA

Dear Advisory Board Members:
I attended  the Triple B roundup in August 2011 at the Newark Valley and Butte Valley trap sites which spurred me on to continue observing and reading whatever is available online about the WH&B program and activities.I’m not affiliated with any wild horse non-profit group nor with ranchers. I have some concerns about the BLM Wild Horse & Burro program because I feel it is broken, not to mention a costly program that increases its budget by paying for research and then ignoring the analyses.

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. – Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly and former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson reached an agreement in principle about two weeks ago in which the Navajo Nation would suspend horse roundups and halt the sale of Navajo horses to horse processing plants.

Elders, medicine men and traditional people who had been calling for Shelly to stop the roundup, sale and slaughter of horses because of the importance of horses to the Diné culture, spirituality and society welcomed the announcement.

According to Leland Grass of the Nohooka’ Diné, “horses are not only a symbol of the Diné people, The Great Horse Nation is a part of the Great Covenant, as a supernatural being, it possesses incredible power, it is inextricably tied to our spiritual way of life and our cultural traditions.” Continue reading
