PVC 4/6/2011

HI all.

Hung out a PVC today with some of the Antelope Horses. Babies are cute no matter where they were born…. but I wish it were “home.”

Trying to get two more chapters completed in the guide on www.WildHorseEducation.org but it I needed to go sit with these horses for awhile. Trying to get through the photos and digest all that I have seen… it leaves a knot in my gut.

I am hoping to be back on the road soon. Field data needs to come in… I dread July.

But it’s adoption time of year. May 21 will have an adoption event at Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City, Nevada. This program has had really well-trained horses in the past. These horses will be some of those taken last year from Twin Peaks. I will poat a reminder as the date gets closer.

Horses at PVC from Antelope are also available for adoption but will not be released until at least May. Strangles is still at the facility and all horses will continue to be swabbed before they leave.

I wish I could hit the lottery.

Calico Confusion

Just want to take a moment to try to sort out some of the confusion about where the Calico horses are going.

Craig Downer purchased Lightning and the old mare 0101.

Mares and fillies are going to Dream Catchers.

And Return to Freedom has taken in the stallions (General and crew).

If you want to help with expenses please now go to those websites and mark donations either calico stallions or calico mares.

There is a really nice article on the AWHPC site about the stallions.

Incredible example of what can be accomplished when this amazing group of advocates focuses! Lets keep sharpening each other, supporting each other and focus on those incredible beings… our horses.

WE ARE organizing the Calico adoption event.

Right now things are being arranged as discreetly as possible.

If you want to help CalicoFreedom@gmail.com is both contact and paypal.

The effort is growing daily and has “safety” situations that involve wonderful folks like Return to Freedom and Dream Catchers.

Specifics will be made available asap.

Many of the horses on the Inet page would be great project horses for personal use. If you want any info on any of these wonderful animals I would be glad to answer any questions.

Many of you know that I had a bit of a personal emergency that has slowed me down… but not by much. But I ask your patience in awaiting my responses.

Yes, I did file for the horses in Tuscarora. The suit is public record now.

Pray….

Love you all.
