    Your pursuit of access… well edited incidents. What this is about!! Now it is about more (and growing).

  2. Louie Cocroft says:

    What a nice BLM office, out there in the middle of the desert. It sure would make a nice Wild Horse and Burro Advocate Center.

  3. Louie Cocroft says:

    BLM has some nice government trucks, too. Wild Horse and Burro advocates could sure put those to good use…..there’s an awful lot of land out there to be covered. So much land and so few Wild Horses OR Burros.

  4. Louie Cocroft says:

    Does BLM get free gas cards, too?

  5. Louie Cocroft says:

    AND Police protection….WOW! Just doesn’t get any better than that, does it?

      Did you know they get expense accounts too? Cameras, cute chairs with awnings, sunscreen…. and they like to talk about kitchen remodels… they stay about 4-5 days so they don’t get “burnt out.” Vehicles are all maintained by the government, too.
      Not a bad gig? Only one catch… you have to be able to lie through your teeth.

        Of course. Government per diem.. Guessing 140/day. And if you stay with a friend, you pocket the money. And I know in my heart that there is a lot of under the table money. When the BLM looks the other way when horses disappear from LTH. Everyone is happy. The land owner is paid for horses he doesn’t have to feed; killer buyer, obviously; BLM employee gets a little bonus for noticing nothing.
        Everyone is getting what they want out of this Agency…except the horses and burros…and their advocates. We are hated because we (Laura and her compatriots) seek to block their gravy train.

        • Mar Wargo says:

          When horses disappear from Long Term Holding they have been ordered by a buyer and the sale is arranged through Sally what’s her name in DC. The cover for the kill buyer just tells her a little fib about where the horses are going. Then, they can get delivery or they can send a ‘reputable horse hauler’ to get the horses. Many ‘horse haulers’ for BLM are kill buyer drivers.

    No sympathy for the divils here! It would be nice to move in tho… like your idea, Louie.

  7. polopaula says:

    I just don’t get it.. There is no LAW for them. Only the stuff they say, that they know are lies when they say it. Might as well be talking out their ass.
    Just like that guy I talked to at Palomino Valley. I knew he was lying, and he knew he was lying and no matter what my question was, he stuck with the lie. Even when he had to change the lie that he just told to another lie.
    Everyone of these people stumble for words, because they don’t tell the truth, and they have to think up the lie. You are so strong, Laura. I might have already attacked someone. From now on, I am recording my conversations with them. Do I have to tell them?

    • Laura Leigh says:

      Not in Nevada. In Nevada it is legal to record a conversation without someone’s knowledge.
      Don’t try it in another state though.

      What did they tell you at PVC?

      • polopaula says:

        I wrote you an Epistle last night to put you to sleep.. Basically, couldn’t adopt the foal because he didn’t have a brand. couldn’t put my name on him for when he had a brand. Might have a brand by end of Oct. (Insert here every possible thing that could keep them from getting it done, including fire, wind, heat,snow, pestilence in the form of a disease at some other facility, that would cause them to ship all the horses at PVC to Fallon, not kidding. Might as well add hell and brimstone here). MARE is his real Dam. She was in pen all the time, just too shy to go to foal, or even answer his cries. But when things quieted down, she claimed him (per Jake). I said that I had raised foals for 27 years, and had never known a mare not to answer her foal when it called. He said with great disdane..YOU DON’T KNOW THESE HORSES! Then went on to explain:
        She is hostile to humans and trucks, and is making the foal the same way. Doesn’t really like other mares either. She is branded and is over 11 yrs old. I can buy her for $20, but couldn’t get her and the foal until foal is branded, has booster, and wait 30 more days. Really think this mare needs LTH or a wild horse sanctuary if I could find one for her. Jake had been to ck on foal the day he called, but didn’t know
        gender. so I said that I would call back in one month, that for colt’s sake I really wanted him out before winter. Your videos tonight were just the way I felt on the phone with him. We both knew he was making things up as he went along, but it is JUST THEIR WAY.
        VERY frustrating. BTW. Do you know a man named Ray Fields Wild Horse Sanctuary in Texas. Kathleen Hayden said that she knew them personally and they were honest and caring, tho I’d heard is name
        disparaged over the Persidio event. Anyway, it might be possible for the mare and foal to ship there, and perhaps he would keep the mare at his place, if I agreed to make donations or something..As long as he is legit.. Here I’ve done it again. You ask what you know how to make the clock.. Waiting anxiously for your next post or video.. Lana had a great idea and started an event 5dollar Friday to Support Laura. I hope it goes over big..

        • Laura Leigh says:

          Thank you for the 5 btw.
          The baby is a boy.
          The mare is no more wild than the others.
          She also did not come off the range with him.
          She is very pretty…
          I’d say that you call him every week and ask babe’s location.
          He is also no more “wild” than the others.
          He is a gem.

          Yes, I know… you’d think BLM was trying to discourage the public from adoption?

  8. Mar Wargo says:

    One on one you can record. Yes. You don’t have to say anything. When there are more than one person you have to tell/ask or it is of no use to you in court. I wonder if this has changed…

    It is best to talk to them like you are not an advocate but like you want to learn what you can… indirect.

  9. Bless you Laura!!! Please dont give up EVER!!!!

  10. Jill says:

    Paula, that’s a great idea! I hope you don’t mind me using your slogan as a title?!

    Would everyone help keeping this post positioned at the top, by making comments to ALL or to me or other members on the ABR site, that way more people there will see the request.

    Everyone, PLEASE HELP!

  11. Jill says:

    Just click on the REPLY button at the bottom and enter a comment, or the word “BUMP!” and then POST it.

    That will keep this Request to help Laura at the Top and Visible.

    ANY donations, small and large are needed to help!

  12. Marilyn Wilson says:

    Sent five. GOD Bless you Laura for all your hard work.

    BUMP 4 fiver’s

    • Laura Leigh says:

      Thank you.
      In the last two days we have gotten 12 donations since the “fivers” have started.
      Y’all gave me an idea for October… I am going to send an “unseen” high quality jpg for printing to every October donator over 10 bucks.
      I’ll change the pic every week.
      I can set up the email to batch send so even if I can’t get internet the pics will go out…
      Working on Fall Newsletter…
      THANK YOU!

  13. Mar Wargo says:

    Cool jpg idea!
