This post is hard for me to write. When I heard a wild horse had been murdered, I think of everyone who loved this wild one - especially kids.
This week there has been talk about wild horses being dangerous after a child was kicked while feeding a wild horse. Unfortunately it is us who are a danger to them.
Wild horses are majestic and respectful but we must honor them. Feeding them is dangerous because it brings them down to the roads where they are in danger of being hit and they may fight over the food which can put you in danger. They are not public safety concerns - as some say - it is us who have taken away their safety.
Because people feed the wild ones, they are more trusting of us and our cars. Please do not feed them.
â¥ If you want to feed and pet a wild horse there are 50,000 in holding pens waiting for a kind touch and a good home â¥
I teach my friends when we go out on field observations to never get too close to the wild ones and to never feed them. But we get to come back to the stables and pet adopted mustangs.
Now, back to the horse-killer. I hope and pray we get justice for these horses and for all the people who loved them. I pray for all the wild horses and burros that they will be safe from bad people and cars.
Can you help us continue our mission of teaching youth about the proper ways to view these marvelous and majestic creatures? Can you help us raise awareness about the horrible killings? Us kids want to know we live in a world where there is justice for animals. Your gift of a dollar
goes a long ways! Thank you for your help!
