NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE ACTION – BEFORE THE DEADLY, TORTUOUS ROUNDUP OF PREGNANT MARES AND ONE-WEEK OLD FOALS STARTS ON JULY 1. HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO.

Please send the following pre-written letter to the following Officials at B.L.M.

Bob Abbey, Director of BLM, Email Address: Director@blm.gov

Mark Struble, Public Relations Director BLM, Email Address: mstruble@blm.gov

COPY AND PASTE THE FOLLOWING LETTER TO BE EMAILED TO BOB ABBEY & MARK STRUBLE. THE WILD PREGNANT MARES & YOUNG FOALS NEED YOU TO SPEAK FOR THEM. WE NEED AT LEAST 10,000 EMAILS SENT IMMEDIATELY.

~~~~~~~~~~

As an outraged citizen I am writing you to beg for the mercy of week and month old babies that will be the victims of the planned Round-ups starting in July.

The BLM handbook states that round-ups should not be conducted during foaling season. In July there are still mares that are heavily pregnant and babies that are only weeks old. Even babies that are one or two months old cannot withstand the miles and miles of running over treacherous terrain. July is in the middle of foaling season.

These round-ups will undoubtedly result in many foals suffering and dying and pregnant mares aborting their babies. Babies have died from sloughing off their hooves before. (during the Calico Roundup)

It is easy to predict, young babies simply cannot withstand the miles and miles of exerting exercise, their small under-developed feet cannot withstand the pounding, they cannot go without their mothers milk especially after this exertion, and the stress and anxiety of separation from their mothers is extremely inhumane to both mothers and babies.

One would not run one’s own pregnant mare or mare and baby for miles and miles and expect them to be ok. As a matter of fact one would be arrested for cruelty to animals.

I do not agree with any BLM Round-ups as there is no independent count of Wild Horses and the contractors are inhumane and have no knowledge of natural horsemanship.
However, Round-ups during foaling season take this one more inhumane step further and are even more callous and willfully cruel and heartless.

Thousands of horse advocates are outraged, Horse organizations are outraged, my pony club is outraged, my neighborhood is outraged, and the media is outraged.

Please have mercy and direct the contractors to conduct the Round-ups only after the foaling season is over. And only when temperatures are not extreme. I beg of you to order the round-ups to only ever take place during the months of Sept and October and November, after the summer heat is over, when the babies are at least 3 months old and before the bitter winter cold.

Most urgently I ask you please, postpone the foaling season roundups!!

Sincerely,

Thank you Simone. I'm sure we have all signed petition after petition, sent emails & letters, & called, so many times we've lost track of how many, &, of which ones. This is a never-ending battle, &, I for one, am grateful for all the animal lovers & advocates out there, which, if not for them, our animal friends & companions would certainly suffer more than they already do. We are their voice, &, together, we can make a mighty ROAR!! The BLM WILL get "paid back" for their continuous abuse & torture of helpless, innocent horses & burros, we can only hope & pray it will be SOON!! WE must stand together & STOP the BLM!!
