I tried to pick photos that speak to the beauty of the horses yet include the tragedy of confinement…

  4. Hi Laura,
    First Thank YOU for documenting all these round-ups, holding-pens etc. The whole wildhorse isue/situation. Im swedish and I just found out of how these horses are beeing abused both under these helicopterhunts (CHOCK for me!!!)
    and afterwards in thes narrow Holdong pens and corallls, Horrible to keep these horses in captivity. I do want to do all i can to help from Sweden, even if there is not that much I can do, But i can try to raise awerness, both through talking and writing about it. I’m blogging/writing for “The Perfect World”: and i have done 4 storys so far and will contiunuing writing about all this. I wonder, is it possible for me to borrow photos from you to my storys. The pictures here on the starving foal, and others is photos that I think the whole world should see. I will Of Course write also abot you and link to your site. Id be happy if you have the time to answer me! My Very Best from Sweden, Marie Lindberg

    Excellent job documenting the horrors of round ups, Laura. I honestly do not know how the BLM and others involved with round ups sleep at night.

  8. Laura says:

    Thank-you for attempting to document the gathers. The public deserves to know the honest truth-the good, the bad, and the ugly. Oversite and knowledge are always a good thing. Do you have any photos from a bald mountain hma gather on Jan 7, 2009? We have a mare gathered then with a distinctive bald face and bat roan coat. We would love to know more about her.
