Madeleine Pickens, wife of the multi-billionaire T. Boone Pickens, is offering her own plan to help solve the current mustang problem. Stated simply, the BLM has too many mustangs in captivity to feed them all and is looking at euthanizing some of them. Mrs. Pickens has her own idea and is planning to purchase over 30,000 of them and find land for them! That is most, or all, of the burros and mustangs currently in holding by the BLM. Can you believe it? What a woman! I salute her for her love of the American mustang. I only wish there were more enlightened rich people who could put their money to work! Here is the full story on the Washington Post website:
I especially salute her because I've visited the BLM holding corrals at Ridgecrest several times now and I've fallen in love with horses there that I've had to leave behind to a very UNCERTAIN fate. I'll post the story of one of them tomorrow. I called him "Gordo".
