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

Most of the wild horses and burros that BLM WH&B program have put up for adoption, have gone through the jute chutes chased by helicopters; others have been captured in traps and still others are born in holding pens.

This is the beginning of their relationship with humans and it doesn’t get much better for most; the worst possible scenario for them is deadly.

Most will end up in holding pens and even the lucky horses and burros that have been adopted may end up in bad situations and are at risk of going to slaughter.

The Facebook page is for those wild horses and burros:
