Children And Our Wild Horses

December 12, 2009

Wild Horse Annie involved the children in her efforts to save the wild horses in the seventies and programs are being created to do the same thing today. Children have a unique way of simply, but powerfully expressing their views. Below are some resources specifically geared towards the younger generation (our future wild horse advocates) who want to help save our wild horses:

    pam, get in touch with ellen catherine nash of manes & tails organization. she has put together a comprehensive list of the wild horse herds (i think it includes wild burro herds, too, but am not sure) & is encouraging an “adopt a herd” program. also, ask her about her letting writing campaign idea, getting children to write letters to michelle obama! she has talked about it on the howling ridge radio show a couple of times now.

    Hi Pam. TJ Holmes shared your site with me. Beautiful photos!!!

    I run a site for horse-crazy girls, many of whom love to read/write about and draw wild horses. Our next activity is March for Wild Horses, a virtual (online) event. The intent is to use our collective, creative voice to speak out for the rights of wild and feral horses on public lands, and show our support for the individuals and organizations who are their loving protectors. Throughout the month we’ll publish stories, essays, poems, and artwork created by horse girls, inspired by wild horses. There’s info and a timeline posted on our blog: http://www.girlshorseclub.com/blog/march-for-wild-horses/

    I hope you’ll stop by!
