I can honestly say this was the first time I’ve ever stood up with a bunch of like-minded people on a quest to educate and enlighten more individuals on the plight of our wild horses in the form of a peaceful protest. At a time when I’ve felt increasingly helpless to stop the cruelty inflicted upon our American icons, this was something I could actually do. It was something I needed to do.

Our organizer - thanks for your efforts Cathy!

Wild horse loving greyhound Kula came all the way from Estes Park to stand with us!

Kula's friend Hilde is also on board.

Me and my Mom (who just went through a battle with cancer and is now in remission). I can't tell you what it meant to have her there with me, healthy again, sharing the love of our wild horses and joining in the fight to protect them.

My Mom - so cool to share this experience with her

There were some younger folks with colorful signs - I loved their enthusiasm and committment to the cause.

Thanks to Boulder Baked Cookies for dropping off freshly baked cookies to appreciative protesters!

These peaceful protests are popping up all over the country. Too many people are not even aware of what is happening to our incredible wild horses of the west. Please, if you feel there’s nothing you can do to stop what our horses are being subjected to, organize or attend a protest and spend some time with people who are as passionate about the horses as you are. It’s energizing and effective. The word is spreading. For the sake of our wild ones, let’s keep the momentum and pressure up while at the same time, creating more awareness and support. Many thanks to all of you that participated…
