    What a great event!! Please tell me how I can help spread the plight of these horses here in Connecticut , I personal had no idea the number rounded up, how they are rounded up and that these horses are sent illegally to slaughter!! Here’s my story- 33yrs ago I adopted a yearly wild mustang, his name, Newbow. I just wanted to Save a mustang, not knowing back then that he was rounded up , separated from his mother & herd, sent on a trailer from Nevada to Massachusetts !!! With lots of love & trust Newbow bonded with me & I with him. I loved him for 33 yrs, he was extremely attached to me. Fast forward to January 29, 2018 Newbow passed away after fighting Lyme disease for 9 months , we tried everything to save him. He took his last breath as I held his head in my lap. My heart broke that day. I had him cremated because I wanted to return Newbow back to the wild in Nevada to be free again. As I investigated where he was born & planned my trip I learnt about the horrific round ups this summer. I’ve postponed our trip until I can find a peaceful place for his cremans out in Nevada and have started calling , emailing my representatives here in Connecticut to stop this inhumane treatment. I’m not an expert on horses, politics, BUT after loving & being loved by a wild mustang I consider myself an expect on that. I’ll continue to follow your group and all the other wonderful advocacy groups. I do need guidance on how to get the word out to the news & local papers on helping these amazing horses.
    Again thank you for all your group does- we have to be the wild Horses voices and stop the killing

    It amazes me that there is such a huge lack of knowledge not just on this side of the country, but all over this country, regarding our wild horses and burros. There are many organizations that have been working on the the horses behalf for years – but until we, the people, all wake up and let our government know – in no uncertain terms- that we care about these animals – as the school children did back in 1971 before the Wild Horse & Burro Act was passed – the BLM, livestock industry, fossil fuel industry will continue to do as they please! The Herd Management Areas have been shrunk by millions of acres – wild horses & burros rounded up and removed. There are better ways to “manage” these animals other than these brutal roundups and warehousing of horses for the rest of their lives – if theyre lucky. Far too many wild horses have been sold “out the back door” of these holding areas. This agency of our government certainly appears to have the goal of eradicating all the herds!
