There are no protected mustangs in canada.There are 40,000 protected mustangs in the united states but none here. The program I watched (canadian geographic) said they had not been tested, it might be out of date as i'm not sure when it was produced.

I also said the Sable Island ponies are heavily managed. As far as I know by natural causes and by shots which prevent mares going into heat. There is also a famous scientist who lives there and moniters them continually.

Hell, they can have some of ours!! We have too many and its causing WAY too many issues!! And I agree that if you are going to "protect" something that includes managing its numbers. Horses are not in danger of being extinct there fore they should not be protected as so.

Don't breed, buy. Don't buy, adopt.

We can't expect, as humans, to care for EVERY animal this happens to. We just can't, the animals in this world over populate the planet, not just Canada. But they as animals need to either live or die in THEIR OWN WAY, not by the way of HUMANS. If they can't survive the winters, they at least die with nature.. (sorry if I took what you said differently than what you meant.

So, it's better to let them suffer and die slowly and painfully rather than a quick death?????

Just want to point out Sable Island ponies are not managed at all by people, at this time you have to have permission from the government to even going onto the island. It is part of Nova Scotia, they are trying to have it made into a national park or reserve of something, I sure hope they don't because that would allow people from all over to visit all over. Only around 300 ponies can and do survive on the island nature takes can of the rest. I don't even know if any one watches them full time now, I thought the housing was closed. Yes people go there though to count population and health for science but they aren't allow to interact with them.

And Newfoundland ponies are not wild at all.
