Friends of Animals on HLN's Issues With Jane Velez-Mitchell: Legal Action for Wild Horses and Burros

Animals  (tags: animals, AnimalWelfare, horses, wildlife, protection, environment )

- 2916 days ago -
Nevada wants to declare wild horses and burros aren't "wildlife" -- which would deny them precious public water. After an outcry, the ugly proposal's been delayed. What next?

It's never ending to try and kill all our wild horses and all the horses want is to be free an left alone! Thank you my friend!

Noted. I agree 100 % with Brenda H. These animals were here long before anyone, they are doing no harm, just leave them alone. Thanks

Wild Horses.

Thunder of hooves across the land,
A gallant proud stallion is leading his band,
With grace and beauty they gallop and run,
Enjoying the freedom and warmth of the sun.

They stop and graze on grassy plains ,
With only the wind to groom their manes,
No man can govern where they roam,
Fence-less pastures their only home.

Stand proud wild horses with spirit strong,
In man-less land where you belong,
Untamed you gallop on land through sea,
Forever wild ..... Forever free.

The Equine Debt
There’s nothing in this world this horse does lack,
Save a proud rider on the noblest of backs.
Down the years he has stood,
Through all bad and all good.
He has toiled and fought,
With we humans, for nought
Save our ego and pride.
For this cause he has died
In the battles of life.
Through trouble and strife.
Steadfast he has carried
Us through when we’ve tarried.
Putting humans to shame,
With our physical game.
He’s shown us to rise,
Reach life’s ultimate prize.
To be humble not proud,
To be soft, never loud.
In the final place rest
He has passed the time test,
That of faithfulness true.
His goodness shines through.
Unconditional loyalty,
Born of humility.
Beside this, mere humans, what do we have to give?
Just our love thanks and gratitude, as long as we live.

Watch the Brumbies
Galloping galloping into the sun.
Watch the Brumbies, see them run.
Gold and silver they seem to be,
Covering ground as far as can see.
Gracefully wheeling, posing for fun,
Watch the Brumbies, see them run.
Gathering herds with youngsters bold.
Everyone moving, young and old.
Stopping to graze and have some fun,
Then off once more, see them run,
Slowing their speed and checking the herd,
Quietly sleeping, some on guard,
Waking at dawn and checking around.
All together grazing the ground,
Then off again racing the sun,
Watch those Brumbies, see them run.

I think when we "follow the money", wefind out the "how" and "why" and "who" behind this absolutely crazy, obscene idea to deny these animals water. Please take control of your government agencies - I am writing letters as well, but all I can say in them is that the world is watching and we are collectively appalled at the actions of this (hopefully) rogue agency. If it isn't :rogue" (in every sense of the word) then I truly weep for your country and it's inhabitants, human and animal.

we continue to live in a world that only cares about its own species, and then we break ourselves into races, before deciding whats in it for me. so very sad, noted
