Photo Of The Week – 10/5/2010

October 6, 2010

Beautiful, free wild horses…(Salt Wells HMA, September, 2010)

The BLM roundup of the Salt Wells and Adobe Town HMA’s begins this week: http://www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/programs/Wild_Horses/fallgather.html

The hardest part of photographing and getting to know these horses is losing them to the roundups that are so unnecessary and cruel. It’s heartbreaking. There’s a better way to manage the wild ones and until that’s studied and implemented, it’s imperative that there be a moratorium on any further roundups. Please keep calling and writing on behalf of our wild horses…and thanks to all of you that continue to do so.

    Oh Pam, I call & call. These really need to stop. Everytime I look at the horses I get welled up, just knowing they are being rounded up all over the west.

    Soooooo gorgeous thanks Pam!

    We truly MUST DEMAND, that the BLM tell us, what is going to happen with the 40 000 + horses in captivity……if they did not have enough money to feed them 2 years ago, when there was 12000 less, then what are they going to do now????! WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW IF THEY HAVE A PLAN OR NOT? If they don’t have a plan or funds to support the Mustangs, then they MUST STOP rounding them up!!!

    They are running away from us. I hope they aren’t running into oblivion. What does it take, what leverage do we need to FORCE these people to stop
    ? Obviously good moral conscience isn’t going to do it. Apparently they don’t have one!
