I've been hiking alongside these very horses for maybe close to 9 years now. I have many pictures of them. I've watched the tiny newborns mature into proud adults. They are a sight to behold. Some I have named. Two of the bands I frequently see have become quite accustomed to myself & my dogs presence. They are curious animals, certainly never threatening. These horses, I believe, are "wild" whose existence on these lands predate any of us or our forest stations!
On the dark side, for those uninformed, if they are mislabeled as "feral", these horses will mostly (or all) end up at a "kill buyer" auction and be beaten into trailers for shipment to Mexico and brutally slaughtered.
Are we so short-sighted and greedy that we cannot share the land with these magnificent creatures who do no harm? A land that rightfully belongs to them to begin with? Please, I ask everyone, help save these horses. Thank you. 11 months ago
