Quick update

Followed truck with pregnant mares and youngsters to Fallon from Eagle today.

On that load was a little black colt… he had a hard time keeping up and I’m concerned…

Just finished quick piece for Horseback and sent more photos to Grass Roots… video tomorrow. Got caught in email stuff…

Trying to keep the image of little Hope from Calico out of my mind tonight… laying in the same facility as his feet sloughed off…

Black colt, Eagle

He stumbled three times


Calico Foal

Hope (feet literally began to fall off, died) Calico Jan. 2010

    Thanks Laura, for sticking with it, keeping track, observing at all the roundups. Its been dam cold, tough on horses being stampeded in below freezing temps, tough on humans too. Take care.

    Beautiful colt, JET black! I hope he will make it ok, as well as all the others.
    I wish we could see them. Are they all going to Broken Arrow/Indian Lakes?

    • Laura Leigh says:

      Yes they are Cat.

      We can’t get in there. All we can do is have the nightmares about what we saw in there after Calico….

      We have seen nothing with our own eyes that anything has changed….

        : ( Prayers for them, and you. When is the next court date?

        • Laura Leigh says:

          Working on that, too.
          Doing all I can… and it just feels like not enough.
          It leaves you feeling really heart inside… bujt you just keep it going… because it’s the right thing to do.

          Today I have a stomach ache and my head hurts…

          People need to get to Eagle.

          It’s only 3 hours North of Vegas… I am flabbergasted that the Summit folks did not head up after they were done there… (only Craig and Lorna came and left early to get back to Vegas).

          I can’t be everywhere and there are four places I need to be right now… on a wing and another prayer.

    It’s worse now because we cannot see how they are doing upon arrival at Fallon. If the little ones are having a hard time keeping up, it is by definition, inhumane. They must adjust speed and distance the round ups for the health and safety of the horses, not the convenience and greed of the contractors. Is this too much to ask for federally protected wild horses?

    Humane treatment is definitely not to much to ask for, in fact I believe we should demand it loudly where ever and when ever we can!
