  1. so sad to watch, such disregard for life………………..difficult to watch, more difficult to document I am sure.

  2. Yes, that’s what is SO chilling – the complete indifference to the suffering of innocents. Makes my blood run cold.

  5. Elena Erdman says:

    Please send me any information on the wild mustangs and burros.

  6. I am a sagittarian born in the year of the horse, maybe why I prefer horses (and dogs) to humans; have always and now even more since I read this horrifying story. Is there anything at all an old lady who no longer owns her farm can do. Which government people can we call or write to. Time and effort I have plenty of just say how and where.

    • Laura Leigh says:

      Thank you. I know these horses mean so much to so many…

        Laura. I cannot watch any of this. But I am personally beyond thankful for you. I hope to meet you someday to tell you in person.
        In 1994 I found my little ‘Peanut’ near Johnny, Nevada . He was standing next to his dead mother trying to nurse. I called BLM after trying to ‘catch’ him. They wouldn’t go rescue him until I told them I would if they didn’t. They finally did the next day then turned him over to the Wild Horse Assoc. I called the W.H.A. so much asking how he was that they finally asked me if I wanted to adopt him. He was so malnourished and had suffered an injury from being transported back and forth from Johnny to Vegas and then Vegas to Pahrump. The guy from BLM had to carry him in and told me he probably wouldn’t make it through the night. So I slept out in the barn with him. He collapsed almost landing on me. I whispered to him telling him I loved him until we fell asleep. And I told him I would never leave him. But an unfortunate and unforeseen event happened. I married THE WRONG man (if that’s what you would call him). He not only abused my daughter and I but every single four legged family member we had. Most ended up in at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. My daughter and I at a women’s shelter. We now live about 45 minutes from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. And visit as often as we can. If we could help in some way it would help us too. Thank you for all that you do. And how difficult and frustrating it must be to say the least. I know how I felt when I found my baby.
        Sincerely,
        Cher-Ami & Makenna Rose

  11. Diana B says:

    Laura, do you have evidence of mares that were aborted and where they were gathered from? The reason I ask is that It is a crime of animal abuse to overdrive a horse in Nevada.

    We tried this one when the older mare fell in the snow bank and couldn’t get up. BLM was able to blow that off saying she just took time to get up and got her footing and went off just fine.

    These mares have been over driven and the abortions are undeniable proof. The only problem we have is that if we don’t know where a particular group with abortions came from, we don’t have a sheriff who can claim jurisdiction to file the charge.

    I want to donate to your site so that I can watch your movie that will be coming out on Sunday. It’s not only for the movie; I want you to be able to get your truck back up and running so that you can get yourself back into the field. Who knows what horrors are taking place, and undocumented while you are afoot? We need you in the field, our Horse Warrior. You are all we have to pin our hopes on for the Salvation of our Wild Horses and Burros. I can comment on this page but, so far, can’t seem to get on the page where you are talking about your movie. God Bless you and your work Laura Leigh.

    If I’m going to donate, I need a rundown where your donations go..thank. You kim

    • Laura Leigh says:

      Kim,
      Donations go to observations and the direct expense associated. Gas, air filters, anti-freeze, oil, tranny fluid, belts, hoses, etc. They are used for storage devices for files, fees for the organization to file with the state, duct tape to keep the back window from falling out of the truck, etc. Direct expenses are hardly covered. I have sold everything I have of any value over the last year to keep the truck running. I have no home and can tell you every safe truck stop to sleep in and public shower to use on 4 different highways in the West. Our average donation is $20.00. We have received no grants or consistent funding from any source. Things like gas cards are greatly appreciated.

    Hi Laura, I need an address to mail you some money for your undying love of these awesome creatures…We have 9 horses and a donkey. These sweet animals are part of our family and we love them dearly. I am so grateful for what you do for these horses!!! Horses seem to be throw away’s for many. I come from a small little town with population 2500 and we have people tie up a horse and leave them at a ranch up the road. they leave them and starve them, especially during the winter months…All they would have to do is run an add or take them to the ranch for adoption. Many give them away in the cold months because they can not care for them. I just wish people would realize that it takes time and money to own horses instead of getting them and starving them along with not taking up time with them. There are 3 different horse adoption agencys around here and they are constantly picking up horses that people have left to starve and die. My heart goes out to you and all that give their lives to care for these beautiful animals. Thank you so much and you will and are I’m sure truly blessed in so many ways for doing what you do. God bless you and keep you safe as you help to save our Nations wonderful horses.
