Work to do…

So much work to do.

Observation?

The Contempt case filed in reference to the events that occured at Owyhee is still sitting on the Judges desk awaiting a response from the BLM. But I’m not sitting still. Even more information is coming to light and it is being readied for presentation.

But the case still needs support and the attorney is still spending “billable hours.”

 The place to help continue that effort is www.grassrootshorse.com

Herd Watch will have it’s own website very shortly. This should streamline the process of updating everyone and create a portal to become involved and get signed up with a Team for training and assignments. (Yes… I have actually found the time to get much of that material typed!)

If you support Herd Watch please make sure you type in Herd Watch. I have been told that the button takes you to a general donation page for Cloud. http://thecloudfoundation.org/index.php/news-events-a-media/news/wild-horse-issues/342-herdwatch

Best Friends

General and the Boyz are in the care of Return to Freedom and we should have an update from them soon. http://www.ReturnToFreedom.org

Calico Mares updates will come through Elyse Gardner and Dream Catchers (her project) and from what I understand there is a new baby in that group.

Me….? I’m researching and putting thousands more miles under me. Working on many fronts…

Yes, the last two months have been hectic but productive. The effects of the concussion are finally wearing off…. but I still have a lump on my face that may never go away. At least it’s not another big scar.

Say a prayer that the Judge will actually allow this case to hit the coutroom.

The time is way overdue for a forum for accountability.

Hang on… if you thought the ride got bumpy this last week, just wait… buckle up!

Don't forget Hope...

      We are all out there… each one of us.
      I used to have a sensation of standing there alone… it feels like a “Verizon” commercial right now.

      Hang on though… lots to do and we need to do it fast.

      Congress needs to be bombarded when they get back from vacation.

      No more mismanagement of OUR land for private profit. NO MORE.

      • morganlvr says:

        We’re all back there, Laura, just like the Verizon commercial! That’s a great visualization too.

        I don’t have a Representative right now, but just wait until my Senators get back.

      • We are behind you and all around… it is good you perceive this. Be careful and keep in touch. Things are brewing and there sure is a lot to do and much ground to cover. Keep your eyes open. mar

    Yes my brother made a donation, and then e-mailed me and he had given it to CF..bless his heart..he went back and made another donation to herd watch!

    • Laura Leigh says:

      That’s what I was told by a couple of people… You Must mark it Herd Watch or it doesn’t go to Herd Watch.
      If anyone made a donation intended for HW that went to TCF they can also call Makendra and she can fix it.

      Thanks Sandra…. maybe see you soon?
      : )

    I know that feeling Laura, I felt it at stinking water,” can you hear me now??” I take everyones thoughts and prayers with me where ever I go..We have a great group of people contributing where ever they can..and yes the big “push” is on…hit all the political people before that oct 1st dealine for funding for the BLM to be denied..folks at the DOI were complaining about not being able to buy paper clips while BLM is squandering millions of dollars- a million to the pockets of Catoors….the next thingto go over a cliff is not going to be a wild horse..its going to be someones wallet..and not mine..

    • morganlvr says:

      Works for me, Sandra. There ARE good, honest people in the DOI and BLM. I know they’re afraid to speak, but if you get mad enough…

    Keep your eye on the rearview mirror and if you see a helicopter on your tail…pull a Dukes of Hazard….I think that means using Daisy as a decoy…

    I’m glad you finally have so many people out there to help you on all fronts.
    Sending blessings,

    ps so glad General and the Boyz got homes; must be nice to actual see these Mustangs in person; as opposed to internet…
    someone wrote this on another fourm:
    The BLM has a “three strike” rule. It means a horse has three chances to be adopted. If the horse is not adopted by the third time it is offered, it becomes a “sales horse”, which is not protected in the same way adopted horses are. Sales Horses can be sold to anyone with $125. I believe they recently developed a contract saying you will not have it slaughtered since this was a major problem when the rule first started, but otherwise, there is no approval needed. You can have as many sales horses as you want and they don’t check records, etc. like they do for people who are adopting.

    WOW SO THE BLM DOES SELL MUSTANGS TO JUST ANYONE!

  7. Anna says:

    SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION:

    1. The Mustangs are hated because they were brought over here by the Spanish; we then had the Spanish American War; so the Spainards are America’s enemy thus so are Mustangs; which were brought her by Spainards…

    2. The Red Neck wild west has been abusing animals for century upon century; man has been abusing animals since Time Immemorial…as if man had a God Given right to…

    3. The Mustangs do NOT double on their own every 4 yrs.!

    THE BLM BREEDS EXCESS MUSTANGS ON PUBLIC LANDS:

    1. THE BLM DOES NOT RETURN ANY GELDINGS….EVER…!
    Even though returning Gelding is THE NO. 1 WAY TO CONTROL POPULATION GROWTH…

    2. THE BLM CONSISTENTLY RETURNS EXCESS STALLIONS TO THE HERDS AFTER THE ROUNDUPS; then the Animals Rights Acitvists clap their hands and say Whoopee ! wrong!

    a. ANY STALLION RE-RELEASED COULD BE ROUNDED UP AGAIN AND KEPT IN JUST A FEW SHORT YEARS…so releasing a stallion does not mean he will be safe; no way!

    b. THE BLM USES captured STALLIONS AS A WAY TO BREED MUSTANGS by releasing them rounding them up releasing

    c. THE BLM BREEDS THE WILD MARES ON PUBLIC LANDS BY BREEDING THEM WITH THE “EXCESS re-RELEASE STALLIONS

    THIS IS HOW THE HERDS DOUBLE EVERY FOUR YEARS…THE BLM “LITERALLY PUTS SPERM LADEN STALLIONS…

    RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE HERD OF UNFIXED MARES

    CLEVER…HUH ?

    SO THE ANSWER IS; if there are enough wild stallions in the herds to keep them reproducing…

    THEN DO NOT ADD EXTRA STALLIONS

    ADD GELDING BECAUSE GELDINGS DON’T OVERPRODUCE

    And think about this: PEOPLE MAY BE EXCITED AND HAPPY WHEN A STALLION IS RETURNED TO THE BLM HMA WILD;

    BUT RECALL THIS: THAT SAME STALLIONS STANDS A VERY GREAT CHANCE OF BEING ROUNED UP IN THE NEXT ROUNDUP

    SO BY THE BLM RE RELEASING A STALLION INTO THE HMA

    IN NO WAY WHATSOEVER GUARANTEES THAT STALLION WILL BE “forever FREE…
    I think putting Geldings onto the public lands and
    PUTTING STALLIONS ON PRESERVATIONS IS THE ANSWER!

    AS LONG AS THE BLM RE RELEASES CAPTURED STALLIONS (THE ONES THEY THING WILL BE THE BEST BREEDERS…)

    THE MUSTANGS POPULATION WILL PRODUCE EXCESS MUSTANGS;

    BECAUSE STALLIONS BREED AND GELDINGS DON’T

    SO WHY NOT PUT GELDING BACK ON THE RANGE INSTEAD

    AND SET UP A SPECIAL PRESERVE FOR THE STALLIONS?

    BY A PRESERVE I mean 100% natural in the wild vast areas…

    WHO CAN STOP THE BLM FROM OVERBREEDING MUSTANGS

    so they conduct these wicked roundups to gather excess Mustangs…WHO CAN STOP THE BLM.gov?
    I am sorry I am not able to help the Mustangs not be overbred; and am sorry our own Gov. overbreeds mustang

  8. Anna says:

    in conclusion:

    If I had a herd of 100 Mustangs; and 75 were females and 25 were males…

    I know one male can mate with many mustangs so lets just say every single female was with foal…

    and I said to myself; I have too many mustangs…would I

    A. ADD STALLIONS TO THE MARES
    B. ADD GELDING TO THE MARES
    C. SEPARATE THE STALLIONS FROM THE MARES

    ANSWER EITHER B OR C

    IF i WROTE “ADDING STALLIONS WILL REDUCE MY HERD…

    THEN i WOULD BE AS KOOKY AS THE BLM which i am not !

    see I was brought up in America; where 2 + 2 = 4

    like 1 stallion plus 1 mare = 1 foal

    like 1 gelding plus 1 mare = no foal

    SO THE CALICO HAS 300 EXCESS FOALS
    THE TUSCARORA HAS EXCESS FOALS
    THE TWIN PEAKS HAS EXCESS FOALS (some died at gather)

    SO THE BLM WE HAVE ENOUGH MUSTANG FOALS ALREADY

    YOU CORRUPT LOPSIDED IGNORAMOUS MUSTANG ABUSERS

    Jesus said,
    “Bless the beasts and the children” I wish all these Government types would see this and realize even Gods Son,(if you are a christian in your beliefs), put the beasts before the children.
    My funds are limited as I’m on disability but I would like to help in some way. I’m here in Reno is the Judge here or Elko county? This practice needs to stop so if you are in need of some help let me know.
    Jeff
