    Cherie, your post is very logical. My response is opinion oriented. I hope that if anyone wants to disagree with my opionions that they will PM me, bc I'm not interested in a thread fight. ....anyway he is my response to this article...
    FINALLY. I'm less interested in market value, and happier that we will soon see less suffering due to neglect. We cannot save them all, and general horse welfare was better in IL when we had a horse slaughter in the northern part of our state.
    Vis a vis Mustangs, why don't you feel sorry for pheasant--ANOTHER introducted species, from China, btw--who are hunted to "extinction?" I have LONG believed that the BLM bureucrats have cushy, horsey jobs while the average non-horsey American pays to keep even more introduced animal species, for which the horse-buyer pays the ridiculously low "adoption" fee of $125. The new owner never had to:
    ‎1) Pay their Vet for broodmare checks or foal checks;
    2) feed either
    3) Pay for boarding or farm matainence for them;
    Yet the average American gets NO return on the BLM salaries. A pretty raw deal, IMHO. I'm tired of Americans stealing from other Americans.
    A think Mustangs should be branded and special licenses offered for ranchers who want to run them on their own private properties. You can buy your certified mustang from a certified mustang owner/breeder. Ken McNabb had a great program (RFD-tv) about how dismal the Mustang's lives are, too, since their ranges are not contiguous. They live in pockets in between private lands, often with awful fodder and sometimes no water. Let's keep this going and make them suffer more. Typical bleeding-heart logic!!!
    Thanks. I feel better. =D
