Sunday 20 January 2013

I have become a staunch anti horse slaughter advocate and an advocate for saving our symbol of freedom the American Wild Mustang.  It is a heart wrenching fight with these horses being stampeded (they call them roundups) using helicopters to the point of extinction.  I went trail riding a while back and came across this little guy, his name is Fred and he is the first mustang I have had the privilege of meeting.  I rode him and it was a bittersweet ride, he was "gathered" many years ago when he was a young horse and he is now in his late teens.  I did read his brand but can't remember the specifics of where and when right now.  I offered the owners a home for him when he was due to retire and I meant it.  The fight for these icons sometimes becomes too much to bear.  If anyone would like to know more let me know.  I support and help raise funds for Laura Leigh of Wild Horse Education and am a volunteer on their team for fund raising in our fight for press freedom and access and humane care standards from the BLM during these roundups.  If you would like to read more or donate to our efforts here is the link to the website, I can vouch for their credibility.  Thank you!!! Wild Horse Education
