Cinnamon is a yearling filly #8764. She needs an adopter!

Cinnamon is a yearling filly #8764. She needs an adopter!

UPDATE: Cinnamon has found an adopter! A big thanks to everyone who shared.

Help us find an ADOPTER for Cinnamon (# 8764 yearling wild filly) to save her from getting another STRIKE against her!!! Keep her away from slaughter!

She can be picked up in Florida!

No one has bid on Cinnamon on the internet adoption. WHY isn’t BLM at Palomino Valley promoting her? Why is their adoption program a Marketing FAILURE?

After 3-STRIKES she can be SOLD into the SLAUGHTER Pipeline because The Burns Amendment allows this! She is so young. Please help!!!

Here is the info on Cinnamon according to the BLM:

Sex: Filly Age: 1 Years Height (in hands): 13

Necktag #: 8764 Date Captured: 08/01/12

Color: Sorrel Captured: Desatoya (NV)


#8764 – yearling Sorral Filly, Star gathered August 18, 2012 from NV0606 Desatoya Herd Area, Nevada.

This horse has always been very friendly. She was always the first one to come to the fence to greet the public. Tag# 8764 has been in a pen by herself for two weeks. When we took the pictures on 9/18 she was introduced to her halter, she lipped it for a few minutes and then let us put it on her without any hesatation. She lets us brush her and run our hands down her legs. 8764 has not offered to kick or bite. 8764 is very willing to learn new things. 8764 has not been worked with a lot, she is just a very loving lil filly.

This horse is currently located in Palomino Valley, NV. For more information, please contact Stacy at 775-475-2222, Monday-Friday 8am-4pm or email

CONTACT Anne at 415-531-8454 if you want to adopt her because the BLM fails at placing wonderful wild horses like Cinnamon and we don’t want to see her get 3-Strikes and be SOLD to an alleged KILL BUYER!!!

PICK UP options (by appt): Palomino Valley, NV; Salt Lake, UT; Elm Creek, NE; Pauls Valley, OK; Piney Woods, MS, Mequon, WI.

Other pick up options: Okeechobee, FLORIDA (Jan 10).

Adoption confirmation for this animal must be finalized no later than Nov 22. After this date, all unclaimed animals will be available for in-person walk up adoption only. Here is her page at BLM:

Adoption info: Applications will be accepted starting November 4, 2013 and will close at noon on November 18.

You are only required to keep the wild horse in high fencing until they are halter gentled. Then they can go with other horses in more regular settings. CALL Anne if you are getting BLM Red Tape.

We want to make it easy for you to adopt a wonderful horse. Cinnamon is already a little bit halter gentled. She will make a great friend. She is as cute as a button and just needs someone to love her.

Please email your Senators and Representative asking them to investigate the broken wild horse and burro adoption program. Thank you for helping Cinnamon. She is one of 50,000 American wild horses at-risk of ending up at probable slaughter.

A Big Thank You to Daryl Hannah for spreading the word about Cinnamon!

Daryl Hannah and Michael Blake speak out about toxic drilling, wild horses & burros on Valentines Day


For immediate release 

Make LOVE not Roundups™ launches to stop the war against native wild horses and historic burros

WASHINGTON (February 14, 2013)–Daryl Hannah, who was arrested yesterday at the Keystone XL Pipeline Protest, and Oscar-winner Michael Blake (Dances with Wolves) speak out to protect America’s indigenous horses, historic burros and public land. The celebrities join Protect Mustangs’ Make LOVE Not Roundups™ native wild horse awareness campaign. Mustangs and burros are being cleared off public land to minimize environmental restrictions for toxic drilling.

“Wild horses and burros absolutely thrive on public lands but they are being unceremoniously eviscerated to make room for private cattle grazing leases and toxic drilling operations,” explains Daryl Hannah. “The BLM has increasingly become the BLMM–Bureau of Land Mis-Mangement. Let them live free!”

“Roundups are like a war on our native horses,” states Anne Novak, executive director for Protect Mustangs. “We want to focus on the public’s love for wild horses to protect them. Right now they are being wiped out and many go to slaughter. We need to return all the mustangs and burros stockpiled in holding to their legal range land. As a native species, wild horses will help create biodiversity and reverse desertification.”

“We go to America for vacations and love photographing the families of wild horses and adorable burros,” shares Barbie Hardrock European singer and spokeswoman for Protect Mustangs. “Please help save these magnificent animals!”

Michael Blake, author of Dances with Wolves says, “Loving horses is essential for human life on this planet. For millions of years, horses assisted humanity but after cars were invented in America, America has fully destroyed them and continues. Though humanity is similar to all animals in terms of no full perception, the killing of them all is moving the earth to destruction. If we only kill those who attack us, humanity will keep the earth real for humans who follow us. Like humanity, every horse is different but I have loved them most and have never killed one all my life.”

Recently, beef in the EU has been contaminated with toxic horse meat. Horse lovers and health enthusiasts are concerned the same scandal will happen in the U.S.A. if horse slaughter isn’t stopped.

Native wild horses are at-risk of going to slaughter for human consumption abroad now that Oklahoma’s elected officials appear to be supporting horse slaughter for human consumption in foreign countries.

Protect Mustangs wants the cruel roundups to stop now. They are asking for all wild horses and burros “stockpiled” in government holding to be returned to the protected zones of public land specified in the Free Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Act of 1971, called Herd Management Areas.
