I'm going to take this opportunity to rant. I have believed for years now that Mustangs should not be left out to breed, then rounded up and sold, then let loose again. It is a brutal life for them. There aren't miles and miles of grazing for them, just pockets of land separated by fenced in property. It is a life of constantly looking for forage and water and trying to avoid predators--cougars, bears and wolves. We don't have the stretches of land needed in the US to do this anymore.
I have posted before that IMHO, we need to certify Mustang breeders, who can mange a herd and certify a mustang for the public to buy, if indeed, we still NEED wild horses. I am sure that they are others who have good solutions, too, so don't bash mine if you think you have a better one. I just don't want to see animals suffer unneccessarily.
It just reminds me SO MUCH of horse owners who take on too many and starve their animals.
I couldn't watch the whole video. I've seen too many of them to stomach watching more.
