Owyhee survivor needs a home away from 3-Strikes and slaughter

Help Hudson find a forever home.

Hudson is a bay gelding with id number is 12224370 from the Owyhee HMA in Nevada. He’s 2 years old and already 14.3 hands.

So many of Hudson’s relations were killed during the Owyhee roundup. Reports came in of wild horses being chased by choppers and run off cliffs. . .

Why did the BLM roundup the Owyhee mustangs? Why did they spin to the public that they didn’t have enough water? Didn’t award-winning reporter, George Knapp, find bodies of water out on the Owyhee range? Why were the wild horses fenced out? Does their tragic removal have anything to do with fracking in Nevada? What is the truth?

Help Hudson find his forever home to keep him safe from the heinous 3-Strike system.

Every time a protected wild horses is offered for adoption and no one picks him or her they earn a strike against them. After 3 strikes they loose all their protections and legally can be sold for $10 a head by the truckload. The pro-slaughter Burns Amendment twisted the intention of the 1971 Free Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Protection Act. The BLM claims that after the Tom Davis fiasco they won’t do this anymore. Do you believe BLM?

Why does Congress support the Burns Amendment?

Here is a video of Hudson #4370. He’s a nice mover and a sweet boy.

Here is information from BLM about the California Internet Adoption event:
