I just woke up to see if BLM had changed meeting times for am… I have been calling all night. There is no message confirming observation for tomorrow. So I am going to get some rest instead.
Right now I have funds for one day of travel. I am “guarding” it right now and will head up after I get confirmation of observation ability. I know all too well it can take over a week to get any real observation.
I have the vehicle running, stocked with water and dog food for Elvis, and we are ready to take off…. I will post updates as I can… but I am delaying my departure until I can shore up enough funds for at least a few days, I’d like to stay the duration and move into Calico. I have made arrangements for Calico that are taking shape and will decrease the cost of being there. I am sending out resumes and trying to sell artwork… but I need your help.
Today a mare broke her neck….
AS far as I know there was no one there that is posting daily updates besides BLM.
I have no time to do a “perk” or “thank you” gimic for donations. PLEASE help me get there. I need to be there….
This roundup is in Nevada, and if I can keep the chain going on information that pertains to handling, I can expand the current issues being addressed in the Courtroom. This can be pushed forward…
I have also come to feel that if we are not there the story is never told completely.
Today I was able to provide an adopter with pictures of the day her horse was captured, the band stallion of her mares group… and by checking on her horse at the facility was able to tell her she needs to add a “plus one” to her barn capacity… her mare is pregnant and she now knows what the father looks like… and the details of capture.
There are many of you that can no longer look at the images and I know some do not feel that documentation means anything.. but if there was footage, wild horses would be on the nightly news again. Keeping the conversation of wild herds caught in public land “management” games is important… but we all know what it takes to get the media involved. If it is more than 48 hours old, it aint news anymore.
