First I want to commend you all for keeping cool heads when posting in this thread. It can be a hot topic.
Second I wanted to comment on the the wild horses in Oregon. You may be thinking of the wild mustangs or BLM horses. They do have wild herd running in Washington and Oregon.

Oh, I thought we were talking about domestic horses being dumped on peoples properties, not wild horses. Whoops.

I also thought we were talking about domestic horses being abandoned on private land. How does one abandon a wild horse?

If a domestic horse is dumped on public land does it then become a wild horse? Do the wild horses of the area ignore it or pick on it for being a "tame" horse? JK
I can't imagine dumping a horse on private land when there is public land available to do it on in the middle of the night.

I can't imagine its legal regardless. If its not against the law why do it in the middle of the night?

I do not support the group as whole, or most of the things they do. However, in certain circumstances, when there are no other options, they can be really helpful at getting things accomplished. They do truly care about the well being of animals. And I can speak from experience.

The whole issue about people dumping horses, yes they are domestic, there SHOULD be a law against it but people keep getting away with it. There are so many rescue horses in this state due to that happening. And no, people do NOT want horses just dumped in their fields.

I'm my spare time I ride dragons and runners, practice my Harper skills, talk to dolphins and hang with MasterHarper Robinton.
