Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 5 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay, November 30, 2014.

mustang roundup




Wednesday, 02 September 2009 22:31 LOVELL, WYOMING - SEPTEMBER 2, 2009 - A Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) request by The Cloud Foundation and Front Range Equine Rescue was denied today in Federal District Court. The TRO was filed to stop the round up of the Pryor Mountain horses, an action unprecedented in size and scope. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has contracted with the federally-indicted Dave Cattoor to round up America’s most famous wild horse herd beginning September 3, 2009.

PRESS RELEASE
LOVELL, WYOMING - SEPTEMBER 3, 2009 – In the searing 90-plus degree heat the first five mustangs, of less than 200 remaining in Montana’s only wild horse herd, are driven into corrals by a helicopter, forcibly removed from the rangeland they have occupied for hundreds of years. The Pryor wild horses and one palomino stallion in particular, Cloud, have been made world famous by the PBS Nature documentaries, the third of which will air this fall.

This makes me physically ill. We will be judged by the way we treat the creatures we are to care for...

People need to use their brains more. There has to be a better way than this.
