THE TRIPLE CROWN FOR WILD HORSES

I have a poll at the end of this article, so let’s begin with the end. It must be stated that there must be a quick reaction time to the Nevada wild horses, since they will be and can be taken care of by the wild horse advocates. There is and should be tension in the air all over the United States. This is the beginning of taking the wild horses back to the public lands from the holding sites; this is the beginning of obtaining and retaining the public lands for wild horses and burros without their lives being endangered by roundups and harrassment; nor will they be sold to slaughter. This should be the day when everyone drops everything and figures out what we should do, immediately! I will state here that you can find more information about these wild horse and the beginning of the information on WILD HORSE HUB CENTRAL on facebook; or you can contact Protect Mustangs, Anne Novak. In the video, there is another wild horse rescue and advocate mentioned, and since I do not know them, I can not remember their name right now. Life is like that for me. Since the beginning of this week, I have been scratching my head as to where to begin and what to do.  Now it’s time to get to work. This means that all aspects of wild horses and burros must be ascertained, studied, and is it possible that different herds or individual horses will need specific attention? Of course, if you have ever owned horses or been on a range with wild horses or personally owned horses, you know that there will always be those times when every single one of them need something special. Usually, at this time of night I want to just relax and try to get my body to stop aching. But right now, we have work to do. Somewhere between heaven and here we have been given a gift to actually take over the rights to manage wild horse herds. Will this be without interference of the Bureau of Land Management? If so, they also need to surrender the rights to all funds that have been set aside to care for the public lands and all funds to care for the wild horse and burro populations; and they must remove themselves from the activity of “managing” anything concerning the horses, which includes the public lands. Migration can begin. People can migrate easily – horses not so easy any more. It’s not a natural plan – nature setting it’s course and the horse finding the path which nature sheds it’s abundance or its scarce resources. Seeds, which I discovered today (Chia seeds!) can be seeded along the various places where horses are not frequently passing until they grow, or just the seeds themselves can be provided as a resource of nutrition along with hay introduced slowly so as not to make the horses ill. Everyone knows that veterinarian care has to begin. The VETERINARIANS AGAINST HORSE SLAUGHTER may be a source to begin looking. There must be a list made to begin the tasks of caring for these horses. As for research in the field, we must lay aside any arguments as to feral or indigenous, now is the time to care for the horses. When the bones were found, did we have any doubt? I would like to suggest asking Victor Ros Pueo,  EQUILIBRE Gaia’ and http://equilibregaia.com/  where his contact information can be found and I copied/pasted his links so you can do some research of your own: http://equilibregaia.com/links/

As to the poll, I don’t have to know anything, really, I can’t be there in person, and heck, I have lost my cell phone, so I can’t even receive pictures. So, I am doing what I can, and that is read, research, and look for information, updates, and hopefully, reactions from millions of people who are wild horse advocates will respond to the call for help in Nevada; and, not least of all, the funding that BLM has received for caring for these wild horses be surrendered and turned over to these wild horse advocates so they can care for rand keep the WILD HORSE FREE!! I found you all, now you can take the poll or forget it, (right now it’s under password protection and until I take it off or get responses, it’s a mute point to put up a poll and ask just what can you do, or Se La Vive – Anne, I hope I didn’t spell that wrong). Until I return, Get your riding breeches on, looks like we have accomplished a coup de gra (and no, I am not French).   Here is the poll

As you do the poll, help me keep track of the information on there, and the comments on this page so we can find the resouces, as needed, (if that is what you need out there in Nevada.) If you don’t need this, that’s fine. I have just spent hours looking and finding and reading for the pleasure of knowing that the wild horses are finally going to have a chance. WILL WE LET THEM DOWN? I don’t know. We can do our best and demand that the funding not be paid to the BLM because they are going to get paid for that, whether the wild horse advocates do the work or not, whether the horses live or die, the BLM will be paid. Now, it’s up to us. Together we stand, together we fall, but right now, right this moment is all a horse in the slaughter factory has, and now it is gone.

Here is a link to an article that states the population of wild horses or any horse in finite. Absolutely!:

Absolute limits to population growth – detecting hyperbole.

America’s Wild Horses: Native Since the Ice Age

SINCE THE ICE AGE…so, does that mean there were cavemen who tamed horses? If so, they would be feral? Or does this mean, finally, that the term “wild horses” really means wild; what does this mean to their protective status? Can they be protected under the auspice of being endangered, or would that put them in the category with wolves, deer, and any other population that allows hunters to obtain license for when the government says the population is no longer endangered?

Today, the place of the wild horses that roam the western rangelands is a contentious political issue

Lower JawThe recent discovery of the skull and lower jawbone of an extinct species of large horse in Nevada has added another small piece to an extraordinarily complicated jigsaw that forms the picture of equine habitation in North America.

Thenew fossilsbelong to the extinct species Equus scotti, a large horse common in much of western North America during the Pleistocene Epoch – the “Ice Ages”.

The species has never before been reported in Nevada and the remains, dated at nearly 12,000 years in age, make them the youngest record of Equus scotti anywhere in North America.

Was this horse among the last of his kind to inhabit North America or did pockets persist even longer? Either way, the absence of horses from…

NM Attorney General: Meat’s pedigree would have to be proven before slaughter

PhenylbutazoneROSWELL, N.M. —The attorney general’s office said there is another hurdle that could stand in the way of horse slaughter plans in Roswell.

Horse meat, fitting the legal definition of an adulterated food product, may not be manufactured, sold or delivered anywhere in New Mexico regardless of where the food is ultimately consumed, said the state’s Attorney General Gary King.

Sometimes it is difficult to know the pedigree of horses, he said, citing the Federal Food and Drug Administration, and chemically tainted meat is unfit for consumption.

A number of horses are treated with chemicals in horse racing, for example.

King said if the Roswell plant cannot prove meat has not been tainted with chemicals then that meat would be illegal under New Mexico law, adding the slaughter plant would have to prove…

LOXAHATCHEE, Fla. – A horse was found slaughtered in the northwest area of  Loxahatchee on Monday night, according to Palm Beach County Animal Care &  Control.

The remains of the slaughtered horse were inside garbage bags in a canal near  180th Avenue and 32nd Street, officials said.

Investigators say the slaughtered horse appears to be less that  twelve-years-old.

“We hoped we would never see this in Palm Beach County and this is really the  first time we’re seeing something like this here,” Animal Care and Control  Director Dianne Sauve said.

The throat of the horse was cut, according to animal control officials.   They also said the meat was removed from dominant areas of the horse, including  the tongue.

“You have to wonder… did this horse belong to someone? Did a horse go  missing and no one reported it? Did no one care whether this horse was missing?  Or…

NM Livestock Board Director Says No Placitas Wild Horse Roundup

Straight from the Horse's Heart

“We can’t trespass on private property to impound…”

New Mexico State Livestock Board Executive Director Ray Baca says the Coronado Soil and Water Conservation District has no authority to order his agency to round up the free roaming horses in Placitas.

Baca says the Livestock Board will assist in any way it legally can, but the horses are the problem of Sandoval County and property owners in Placitas.

“If they are trespassing on private property each owner has the right to impound those animals. They’re the custodian of their own property, we’re not. We can’t trespass on private property to impound,” Baca said.

Placitas residents estimate there are around 100 free roaming horses in the area. Many have raised concerns about the damage they are causing on public and private land and the dangers posed by…

Judge says BLM Underreports Cattle Grazing Impacts

BLM ignored inconvenient data and contrarian views…

A scathing decision by an administrative law judge has concluded the Bureau of Land Management underreports impacts of grazing leases on Rich County’s 25,000-acre Duck Creek allotment.

If the ruling’s reasoning is applied broadly, it could change the way BLM manages grazing on its holdings across the arid West, according to Jim Catlin of Wild Utah Project.

“Sound ranching is part of what we need to have local food and sustainable communities,” Catlin said. “Degraded habitat places at risk your agricultural community as well as your wildlife community.”

The 140-page opinion by Judge James Heffernan, released last month, said the BLM ignored inconvenient data and contrarian views in its environmental assessment of the Duck Creek project, intended to be a showcase for public-lands grazing.

Also, the BLM’s grazing-management practices could violate the agency’s…
