    Mustang and Wild Horses Help

    I am trying to get supporters to help save our nation's and worldwide wild horses and mustangs from lack of freedom and death!

    What do you mean by "lack of freedom and death"?

    By lack of freedom, I'm presuming you mean BLM type round ups? There are many people on this forum who have Mustangs from the BLM or similar organisations, and treasure these horses. I'm sure some of these people may also support culls, if that is what you are talking about (although I am less well versed in this area of knowledge, due to me being in the UK, although we do have native pony roundups/sales). Whilst very beautiful, wild horses can be considered pests, and a danger to livestock or property. I sure know I wouldn't fancy a Mustang stallion getting in with a mare of mine and getting her up the duff

    Where do we rally?

    I think you'll have to be a little more in depth here.

    oh im so sorry friend(s). I meant roundups and slaughterhouses. I don't mean or want to sound bad or anything. I just care about wild and mustang horses.

    There are things worse than death.

    Overgrazing their range to the point they don't have nutritious forage results in weakness, sickness, poor reproductive health, low birth weights, weak bones.

    I love them enough that I want them kept at sustainable levels. Numbers that their range can sustain.

    So you want "save them" from round ups and slaughter?

    Why do you think they have the round ups? If they don't, the horses will over populate and run out of food. Would you rather that the horses endure a slow and miserable death by starvation?

    As for slaughter, why do you think there is slaughter? If there wasn't an overpopulation of horses by backyard breeders and ignorant people who want to breed "Precious", there would be a market and demand for horses. Where are all of those unwanted horses suppose to go?

    Don't think that I don't care about horses but you can't save them all. With the decline of the economy and rise in costs of hay and fuel, people can't afford to take on more horses, let alone barely keep the ones they have. Why do you think rescues are over full and turning away horses?

    I was wondering when you guys were going to chime in. I've seen mustangs at 5 years of age so small due to lack of nutrition that they look like 2 year olds. Better have the herds managed to keep them genetically strong instead of letting them over and inter breed weakening the whole.

    Maybe the government should force people to give up their land and relocate so there is more land for them to roam. Would you be willing to hand over land that you've worked hard for or had for generations in your family for nothing in return? Does the government keep forcing people to move as the wild horses keep over populating the area the have?
