THE MODERN HORSE EVOLVED IN NORTH AMERICA, AS PER DNA RESEARCH OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS. WE ARE LEARNING MUCH FROM HIM- NATURAL HORSE KEEPING, NATURAL HOOF TRIMMING, HOW TO COMMUNICATE THROUGH BODY LANGUAGE. OUR GOVERNMENT (THE BLM) IS DECIMATING OUR WILD HORSE HERDS. THEY ARE "GATHERED" IN CRUEL, HELICOPTER ROUNDUPS, THEN IMPRISONED IN HOLDING FACILITIES. RANGE PROBLEMS ARE BLAMED ON THEM, WHEN IN FACT, THERE ARE 100  WELFARE RANCHER'S COWS PER WILD HORSE ON THE RANGE. PLEASE SHOW SOME GRATITUDE AND URGE YOUR REPS TO SUPPORT A MORATORIUM ON BLM WILD HORSE GATHERS. IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE THE NORTH AMERICAN-EVOLVED HORSE, NONE OF US WOULD HAVE HORSES.

Where you ever get the notion that there are "Welfare Ranchers" ,I wqould like to see in writing where any cattle rancher or hay grower is on welfare, if you want to B*@%
about Welfare cases go to another site, not animal sites, especially when it is so obvious you don't have a clue

I would like to add, that if it weren't for the rancher many would never have survived in this country, most of the ranchers have lived and worked the land for generations, you obviously don't know that 1 horse eats the equivalent of 4 cows on the range, the cattle are also managed, in other words they are only allowed on the range during specific times and in specific areas during the year, the rancher has to purchase ($$$), AUM's, standing for "Animal Unit Monthly", the right to graze their cattle and the number of cattle allowed rests soley on the amount of private property owned by the rancher, the water sources and the condition of the range.
Horse are allowed to range at will, 12 months of the year, they do not get gathered to let the range recuperate.
I am a horse lover and have been breeding raising, training reg. AQHA-APHA-PtHA- and ApHc horses for many, many years, I was also on a large cattle ranch for many years in the state of NV, we lived in harmony with the wild horse until people with no hands on experience or eductaion became envolved with the "Heritage" as it so well put, evolution also points to you, you wanted a change and you got it, no matter how it is done none of the new comers will ever understand the hardships of people that lived and loved the land have had to endure these past generations.
Buy some land and take these horse and care for them, you have the right to adopt, quite spending the tax payers money, we have too many illegals on "Welfare"to be able to support the horse issue!
Supply the feed, vet care and other things needed for them to survive,take it out of private pockets,the majority of these horses didn't belong to the government in the first place !
