They walk horses in, don’t they?

Over 48 minutes...

Collum says in the Times interview that wranglers have to match the pace of horses. Helicopters are the best way because they can keep horses to the pace they set.

I think he meant the pace that the helicopters sets…

    Horse Speed in MPH – How fast is your horse going?

    Horses speed varies with their stride length, body build, and other factors, but here is a basic idea of how fast– in miles per hour– horses move at their various gaits:

    Walk: Roughly 3-4 MPH.
    Trot: The trot is roughly 8-10 MPH.
    Canter/Lope: 10-17 MPH.
    Gallop: This depends on the horse’s condition and athletic ability. Some horses are not built to run fast an may only do a fast canter at best; however, the gallop is about 30 mph.

    Gallop = All four feet off the ground at the same time. In the second photo, the brown mustang isn’t bearing weight on any of his legs, so he and the others are being chased down the chute at a gallop.

    How fast does your horse move?
    Measure a mile’s distance and time your horse’s walk and trot to see how many MPH your horse goes. Be careful of the footing so your horse doesn’t get sore or go lame.

    Get sore? Go lame? Da ya think?

    How disgraceful this all is. To mistreat animals in such a manner. The Carttoor are criminals. Dave Carttoor just wants all of these creatures dead and he will run as many to death as he can…then shoot the ones that escape and the try and cover it up. Action needs to be taken against the Carttoors immediately. We really need to zero in on these people and bring major lawsuits against them. This is beyond cruelty.

  3. BLM will be answering your suit soon. We need to get behind this work that you have put so much time into.

    Friends and fellow advocates; Please Help Laura Raise Funds To Stay The Course Of This Lawsuit.

    thanks, mar

    I’d like to add these guys to the Tundra herd along with that trigger happy wolf hater Palin and run them down with a high powered rifle from a low flying copter. I dream of this experience regularly. . . .

    Someone needs to do to them what they are doin to these beatiful animals! I think we should make them run miles at top speed not letting them stop them cage them in jail cells, thats what they deserve for what they are doing!!
