Calico Adoption Upcoming

The BLM is listing horses for the upcoming Internet adoption.

https://www.blm.gov/adoptahorse/onlinegallery.php

Only a few of the horses brought to Palomino Valley are listed.

But it’s time to get this effort organized.

CalicoHorses@gmail.com

To make a pledge for the core group of old stallions.

If you are an adopter, or foster for an adopter, get your applications into the BLM and email me that you have done so. If you are a sponsor email me and I will give you info on how to submit your pledge.

We have found a place for the old boys to stay together as a bachelor band and can place some of the others into safe places to be trained toward permanent homes.

Include your phone number when you email me and I will call you this weekend… I need to get back on the road so I have a couple of days to pull this together. Please be patient waiting for a response… I am working on several projects.

    hello; is that a pix of two mustangs “vieing over a pile of manure; I understand Mustangs use Manure as marking; just like a dog will mark; sometimes a mustang will roll in manure

    this is how the mustang gets “his scent on his turf; mustangs and many mammals put “scents or marking where they go;

    did you know this; a Mustang Stallion can “pick up on the scent of a mare in heat from 10 miles away; (PBS TV); and my comment is:

    and I know this for a fact; not just heresay; this is from a nutritionist who just wrote a 500 page book on Feeding Horses (Dr. Juliet Getty; Ph.D.; Feed your Horse like a Horse;

    apparantly the reason a Mustang will “eat or sniff manure is

    THE MUSTANG LACKS FIBER and this is usually because

    THE HAY IS LOW FIBER which is “short stemmed hay; which is what the BLM feeds the Mustangs which is

    short stemmed Hay; actually the truth is a Mustang requires

    LONG STEMMED HAY which has the “seeds and stems and other parts of the Fiber…see FIBER FEEDS THE GOOD BACTERIA IN THE MUSTANG’S INTESTINAL TRACK and if the Mustang does not have adequate FIBER such as the Mustang was used to on the range mountains and plains

    then as awful as this sounds; the Mustangs will “eat their manure as a way to get some Fiber

    HERE IS WHY

    A mustangs tummy produces “acid constantly; whereas we humans only produce acid when we eat food

    so a Mustang has constant acid and this is WHY A MUSTANG MUST GRAZE FOR 22 OUR OF 24 HOURS PER DAY

    TO QUELL THE EXCESS ACID…

    summary by GIVING THE MUSTANGS short stemmed hay low fiber; the blm causes colic and ulcers and lack of appetite

    ONLY LONG STEMMED FIBEROUS HAY (with seeds and stems

    GIVE THE MUSTANGS THE FIBER THEY NEED…so they do not look at and vie over a pile of manure because they are hungry

    no they look at and vie over a pile of manure becuse
    THE MUSTANGS ARE SEARCHING FOR FIBER
    AND THEY FIND NONE

    just like Feathers the Foal; Hope the Foal and Lil one day

    searched for Sustenance by the blm

    and found none;

    so the truth is: the BLM does not know FIBER FROM NON FIBER DOES NOT KNOW NUTRITION FROM POOR NUTRITION

    AND BECAUSE OF THIS MUSTANGS WILL EAT MANURE! ANNE

    ps and because the BLM does not know; FIBER FROM NON FIBER the blm does not know “short stemmed hay from long stemmed hay (source http://www.standeleehay.com)

    MANY MUSTANGS GET ULCERS AND COLIC…

    AND SOME PERISH DUE TO THIS !

    MANY HAVE PERISHED DUE TO THIS !

    JUST A SIMPLE LACK OF THE CORRECT TYPE OF FIBER HAY

    HAS CAUSED A GREAT NUMBER OF MUSTANGS TO “LOSE THEIR LIVES INSIDE THE HOT SANDPITS OF THE BLM FALLON

    JUST IMAGINE BEING A MUSTANG IN THE FALLON CORRAL

    HOT SUN; HEAT; HOT SAND BURNS THE HOOVES; HOT SAND BURNS THE LEGS AND SIDES OF THE NEW BORNS
    HOT SUN CAUSES SUNBURN NO SHADE AT FALLON AT ALL

    See in the wild the mustangs have shade;
    IN THE WILD THE MUSTANGS HAD AMPLE FIBER

    in the wild the Mustangs were happy and healthy…

    At Fallon the Mustangs are depressed and upset
    hungry and acid filled tummies
    looking for any sprig of fiber and finding none

    SOME OF THE FOALS LOOK FOR HAY AND FIND NONE
    because they don’t know the Hay is for adults only

    EVEN THOUGH FOALS SHOULD HAVE CREEP FEED

    summary: the BLM does everything in their power to “eradicate as many living mustangs as possible

    before the adoptions; “not proud to be an American; Anne

    ps only Congress can stop the BLM’s roundup of mustangs!

  3. Anna says:

    ps according to my intensive research; I understand “Foals should be fed Creep Feed in a special creep feed feeder;
    (university of conn. extension article)…

    Creep feed is: “bits of hay; straw; pellets; greens; leaves…

    anything a wild mustang might consume in the wild…

    yet at Fallon NV BLM…”no creep feed is put out for the foals…the foals either live on mum’s milk or they don’t live!

    and this is why Feathers didn’t live to see her life unfold

    this is why Feathers “perished..”lack of Creep Feed! S-A-D !

    Summary:

    The BLM Officials and Vet. do not “possess enough knowledge inside their minds and on paper

    to Manage the wild mustang corrals; “a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing is the epitome of the BLM

    they do not know “Jack skiddle about caring for Mustangs;

    so in effect: the Blm committs animal abuse on the mustangs by not being knowledegable on feeding them…

    be like: giving someone a driver’s lisence who does not know how to drive

    be like hiring a life guard who does not know how to swim

    be like hiring a lawyer who never went to law school; etc.

    THE BLM IS NOT COMPETANT TO MANAGE THE MUSTANGS!
    (and the proof is: 100 msutangs persihed at Fallon and I read recently: “172 Mustangs perished at Palomino Valley

    and that was just in one year !

    the blm is a disgrace to our nation and an enemy of the Mustangs; Burros and other wild life and if you don’t think so; then mediate on this:
    hope the foal got no feed whatsoever for up to 3 days; was Hope the Foal separated from her Mother

    and put in a pen with no milk feed or hay? did Hope die ?

    there is your answer; “the BLM denied Hope feed; ILLEGAL !

    why didn’t the BLM put a pile of Hay next to Hope the Foal?
    or next to the downed mare or any other mustangs who is unable to hobble to the hay feeder

    WHY DOES THE BLM LET SICK MUSTANGS LIE IN SAND TRAP

    and Laura; I understand Palomino Valley is worse than Fallon in some ways; a heck of a lot of mud and water

    muddy water is a known transmitter of diesease

    what is the mud at Palomino Valley? is that a disgrace ! AW

    ps WHY DOES THE BLM PUT THOSE STUPID PLASTIC TAGS UP AND AROUND THE MUSTANGS EARS

    INSTEAD OF PUTTING THE PLASTIC AROUND THE NECK?
    this impedes their lymphnode glands located by their ears

    just the plastic tags themselves harms the mustangs health!

    just between Fallon and PCv; 272 mustangs have perished

    so why does the BLM say “they save and protect mustangs?

  5. Anna says:

    summary you will never stop the roundups unless you get tough with the perpetraitors…(the BLm

    adopting them out is wonderful good and righteous

    but adopting them out will not stop the roundups

    only congress can stop the roundups as far as I know; Anne
    (ps most people have money problems so they can’t adopt;
    keep the faith i know i have lost any and all faith in the blm

    Laura, when I opened up the Internet website, I was SHOCKED that the first PV/NV horse I opened was a 25-year-old bay mare (#0101). 25? Bay? Mare? I don’t hold out much hope for her, even at $125. Sweet old gal deserves so much better, as they all do.

    Then there’s the 15-year-old pinto mare (#0832). She’s striking, but, unless someone wants to “just let her be a horse” on their pasture, I think it would take allot of “whispering” for her to have a traditionally “useful” life.

    Both of these mares should have been sale authority. What’s up with that? More baiting?

  7. Anna says:

    Question:

    where does the Mud at Palomino Valley originate?

    I thought blm said NV in a drought?

    then why all the water and horrendous mud inside the PVC?
    curious in conn. anna ps mud and manure transmit diseases;
    unless of course its natural mud near a pond or brook…imo
