BLM ….. a total waste of time and taxpayers money. These wild horses do not deserve this continued exploitation on the government lands that were given to them by decree

Sarge during release Sarge during release

Sarge, a wild horse from the Fish Creek Herd Management Area (HMA) managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), has become a poster child for a broken system. Sarge has become a “brick in the wall.”

The Great Wall of Denial

Entrenched behaviors create a dysfunctional environment that repeatedly enables the continuance of imbalance, injustice and a multitude of corruptions of the intent of law and morality. This dysfunction is creating an increasingly violent situation.

We began our series on the “Bricks in the Wall,” with a focus on advocacy at the time the 1971 Act and the Wild Horses sold to slaughter buyer, Tom Davis. To read the introduction go here: http://wildhorseeducation.org/2015/10/31/the-great-wall-of-denial-brick-one/

Our second “layer of bricks” is built on the range.

When we address issues on the range these statements overlap to create a layer of… bricks.

As Time Goes By

Loki and Family Spring 2015 026

Life and it’s demanding realities take away from much loved writing, blogging, and I have been away far too long.

For all of the 10,800 followers of Loki’s FB page updates have been frequent.

For my readers here, I extend heartfelt apologies.

Much has transpired since Loki was rescued and joined my family.

Much has also transpired in the world of animal exploitation and the autrocities continue unabated.

My return to blogging will likely be slow as I am still recovering from Compassion Burnout (a form of PTSD) that all who fight for animals worldwide know too well.

Hence this first post in a very long time, is a happy one.  I hope you enjoy the latest video of Loki enjoying all the mud puddles he can find.

Temperatures are expected to launch into Triple Digits this weekend in Reno as things heat up in the ongoing Triple B (Three HMA) lawsuit that now includes the Antelope Valley.

Today attorney Gordon Cowan of Reno filed a reply to Bureau of Land Management (BLM) new motion to dismiss a case that has been in the court system for years on behalf of Plaintiff Laura Leigh, President of Wild Horse Education. The case to date, that also includes the Jackson Mountain HMA in Northern Nevada, has gained two Temporary Restraining Orders and a Preliminary Injunction, the first in the history of the Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burro Act (WFRH&B Act), to inappropriate conduct.

The suit alleges that egregious conduct that includes running babies to exhaustion in intense summer heat, babies and pregnant mares…

(RENO) Today Wild Horse Education (WHE) President and founder Laura Leigh filed documents requesting court permission to intervene in a legal action aimed at all of Nevada’s wild horse population. The Complaint, brought by the Nevada Association of Counties (NACO) and the Nevada Farm Bureau Federation, makes broad allegations asking for wild horse removals statewide and the destruction of what they call “excess” horses in Bureau of Land Management (BLM) facilities.

“We have to try all that we can to defend wild horses against this suit,” stated Leigh “BLMs lack of proactive action to correct flaws made in historic wild horse management has created a situation where our ‘living symbol of the pioneer spirit’ is again the…

copyrightWHE Feb 136/11/2013 BREAKING NEWS! BLM Releasing Wild Hoses from Diamond Complex Back to the Wild!

(WHE-Reno, NV)  Thirty wild horses, rounded up by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) this January from the Diamond Complex, will be released back into the wild sometime after mid-July in an innovative project of the Battle Mountain BLM District, which spans land in both the Ely and Elko Nevada. The horses were part of a larger group, most of whom went to long term BLM holding facilities. This experimental group was held out to improve their condition prior to release back into the wild in a project to preserve the genetic health of the herd. The horses will be returned to the range along with the foals they had in captivity.

Citizen’s Pledge To Protect Wild Horses From Abuse 

(RENO)  Citizens from around the world are signing a pledge to take action to create a humane care policy for wild horses and burros managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Over the last few years the BLM wild horse and burro program has been under intense public scrutiny. The program has been deemed a fiscal failure and unsustainable. Range management practices that favor private profiteers on public land have reached a “boiling point” as drought conditions begin to force issues to a breaking point. More wild horses are held in captivity than exist on the wild.

All of the issues apparent in this program have created an intense public debate, except one. One issue most people appear to agree on is that our wild horses and burros must be treated humanely.
