They wouldn't be starving to a extream point if the ranchers were not over grazzing on public lands.....but I guess it's ok with you that the blm will once in a while trap a hurd...leave them for a while with out food or water and kill them off that way?, (a park ranger friend use to work for the blm and witness it a few times) he even stated that it would be better run by a privet comp other then the blm......btw i've been about horses for 35 years and you?

Longer than 35 years.

I was just curious. And you have yet to offer up any solutions.

I don't know what happened with the horses at the pens. I think I'll check into it though and call some of my contacts over at BLM and see what they say.

But I do know the overgrazing isn't as simple as giving the ranchers less area for their livestock. It's not only livestock out there. It's also widlife. That along with the horses and livestock equals not a lot of area for grazing.

Since you are so against BLM, I'd like to hear what you would do different. And how have you helped out the program so far?

I gave you my sultions before you just didn't care to read them.......you know if I did belive that the blm was doing a good job i've be donating a lot of money to them....how about how they handle the ponies on sable island (CND) and Chincoteague , Chincoteague v.f dept owns them and handles there care and sales....again it comes to moeny and what people do with it.......that's my openion...i'm done...will not be dragging this one any futer thnx

Actually you said you'd get rid of BLM but you different offer up any alternatives to who would run, how they would run it etc. That's what I was asking about.

It takes a lot of money and time to operate a program like this. We manage wildlife and we end up with the same issue with deer/elk as they did with the horses. Of course we are also labeled as evil even though we do our best to do what we can.

I believe it's a lack of understanding and knowledge and people sitting back to just point fingers and do nothing themselves to help out.

No easy solution

There aren't going to be easy answers to this problem, but slaughtering them just to solve this problem quickly and easily is no answer either. It is just always the easy way out. No one is saying there is a simple solution, and it will take resources and people to step up and help. Arguing will not solve it , your energy would be better spent thinking of long term answers and helping the situation. There will always be those, even horse owners who don't really care that much about the wild horses, if it isn't their pure bred this or that that's being killed. Not everyone will be on your side. There is alot of breed predjudice among horse & dog people for that matter. *** I am not saying that is anyone here though, just a point to make, not everyone cares about them.***
Don't waste your energy agrguing, spend it thinking, networking and looking for answers. It will take alot to save these horses, who I think have the same worth as any other horse. They deserve a chance, and they deserve some time and effort to save them. We need ideas, and to let those who disagree, have their opinions, while we work on to save them.
I respect those who have a big heart, whether logic, real life and reality like it or not.

Like I mentioned above, my family did a lot to support the program. For over 15 years. I think it's sad that I hear of people complaining who haven't. See what I mean?

If they can get more money into the system (and there are trusts that have been developed that people can donate too), then they can get more money for the holding facilities and possibly deal with the extra horses without having to kill any of them.

Signing a petition doesn't do very much. But speaking with your money and your time (volunteering) does.

Ok last time I say any thing solan.....you stated that people should speak with there money?. My father makes a large donation every year in to which it is requested by either child, grand child or so forth...last year is was twards cancer resurch (in which my mother died of last year) i'd rahter put in time vulenteering with the blm the handing the gas money to them to drive the mustangs to slughter.....

I'm sorry, but I have no idea what you just wrote.

For anyone that actually wants to help out, you can donate money that goes to a trust fund. I believe there are two trust funds set up. Or you can contact the different BLM offices and see about volunteering with the horse program. Adopt a horse would be even better.

Or you can just sit back and complain about how crappy things are like a bunch of other people instead of acting.

Hats off to all the people out there that have participated in the adoption program or helped out. No BLM is not perfect. What agency really is. People can get involved though, people can help make it better.

Ok solan should I double space and in large it????? Why should I dump thousands of dollers (from a family trust fund) to the blm each year when they turn around and could posably use the money them selves to send horses to sluaghter?, yes I aplod the people who adopt them, but I would rather be giving money to horse rescues for there wish lists...(which we have done over there years) ....i'm finish with it...youonly seem to hear what you want...
