This Black Friday Make a Difference for Wild Horses

November 12, 2017 Craig Downer visit

Through crowdfunding every dollar counts

It’s Black Friday and the sacred WY14™ Wild Horses need help. They must get caught up with their November board on the rented 270 biodiverse acres by Saturday afternoon! Please click here: https://www.gofundme.com/help-wy14tm-wild-horses-november to help them with a tax-deductible donation today. Thank you!

The WY14™ Preservation Project is funded by the people through crowdfunding. Every dollar counts. We are NOT funded by Big Oil & Gas and NOT funded by Big Pharma or Pesticide PZP like other wild horse groups. We are funded through grassroots crowdfunding campaigns and we saved them in 2014 through the power of prayer.

This is a very important preservation project that honors sacred 4-leggeds from the Bighorn Basin (WYO), at the base of the Pryor Mountains, who were rounded up by the Bureau of Land Management at the request of the State of Wyoming. After the WILD herd was sold to the slaughterhouse, Mark Boone Junior and I rescued them back from the Canadian slaughterhouse yard and saved their lives. The majority of their herd was slaughtered before we could find them.

The WY14™ and a few foals now live on 270 rented acres about one hour from Lake Tahoe. They have springs, grazing for part of the year, varied terrain and are happy there.

We are volunteers so every dollar raised goes to pay their board.

I’ve been viciously attacked by PRO-SLAUGHTER & BLM Trolls for years now. That alone will tell you how important this preservation project is.

Please HELP today! Donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/help-wy14tm-wild-horses-november Thank you and Bless you!

The WY14™ Wild Horses send you so much LOVE and Gratitude for being an important part of their lives.

For the Sacred 4-Leggeds,

Protect Mustangs will help find homes for 2 wild horses who would have been killed at Modoc Forest roundup

ALTURAS, Ca.(September 27, 2016)–Last week Anne Novak, founder and director of Protect Mustangs reached out to U.S. Forest Service staff with an offer to help find homes for any wild horses rounded up with pre-existing conditions–who would be killed–not offered a chance at adoption. Tonight Novak received the first call from Forest Service staff.

“It’s always bothered me that after wild horses heal from injuries and survive in the wild, they are chased by helicopters, rounded up and killed upon capture because they don’t seem like they would get adopted,” says Novak. “Some people don’t want a riding horse. Some people want to save a life.”

So far, two wild horses from the roundup have pre-existing conditions. One is believed to be pigeon toed due to a broken foot that healed in the wild. The other mustang’s condition is unknown at this time.

“They need to go to loving homes to become pets–not riding partners–or go to sanctuaries,” explains Novak. “They have survived in the wild and that’s a harsh life. They deserve our compassion after the roundup and they deserve to live.”

After the mustang protectors make an assessment of the wild horses with pre-existing conditions, a sanctuary might be a more suitable forever home. It’s too early to tell.

These two California wild horses from Modoc County will join their herd-mates at the Bureau of Land Management’s Litchfield holding Corrals near Susanville. There they will be prepared for adoption with the others.

Adoption applications are here: Protect-Mustangs-BLM-facility-adoption-app

    • Adopters receive title to wild horses after one year

Members of the public with questions about the BLM’s requirements for adoption, questions about the wild horses with pre-existing conditions, who want to help network homes for wild horses who would be killed for pre-existing conditions, need trainer referrals, or want some tips on how to build an inexpensive shelter are invited to email the mustang protectors at Contact@ProtectMustangs.org

“I pray we can change the trend of killing special needs wild horses at roundups,” says Novak. ‘Someone’s going to fall in love with them. After all they’re still American mustangs.”

Comment period extended but Nevada public hearing a sham

Yesterday we took your comments to the hearing, requesting BLM reschedule the Carson City helicopter hearing with adequate public notice and comments against helicopter roundups, etc. Photographer and honorary board member, Cat Kindsfather, hand delivered them and spoke on behalf of Protect Mustangs as well as the American public.

Kindsfather brought up the fact that people across the country wanted to participate in the public process but there was not enough notice given.

At the meeting, BLM announced they would extend the comment period. Comments can be received no later than June 12, 2012. Only comments sent to the address, email or fax number identified below will be accepted and “considered”.

Comments may be sent by mail or fax:

BLM Carson City District Office

5665 Morgan Mill Road

Carson City, NV 89701

Attn: WHB Motorized Hearing.

FAX: 775-885-6147.

 

Comments may also be sent by email:

ccfoweb@blm.gov, Attn: WHB Motorized.

 

Comments submitted to BLM must include your address, phone number, email, or other personal identifying information in your comment.

Please be aware your entire comment–including your personal identifying information–may be made publicly available at any time. While you may request we withhold your personal information from public view, we cannot guarantee we will be able to do so.

 

Please copy us on all the comments you send the BLM so we can keep a record of the comments received to watchdog this faulty process.

We will send the Carson City District Office all the comments on your behalf that you have sent us after 7 a.m. May 29, 2012 to ensure your comments are received.

We continue to ask for the Carson City hearing to be rescheduled to allow oral comments and for the public to be given 30 days notice for any other BLM public hearings.

Denying the public their right to be present and comment at a public hearing shows the BLM has no intention of engaging the American public nor do they want to be transparent.

The NBC affiliate, KRNV Reno News 4, attended the public hearing and reported on wild horse advocates say BLM jeopardized public process.

Thank you for sending in your comments. Now tell your friends about what is going on and invite them to send in comments against the use of helicopters and motorized vehicles as well.

Stop the Roundups!
