Taken in the Pine Nut HMA of Northern Nevada. Nothing is quite like the blessing of seeing wild horses in their natural habitat, doing their natural 'stang thing.

"Slamming the Gate on Wild Horses"

This image was captured at the recent contraversial roundup, at the Twin Peaks herd management area that encompasses approximately 750,000 acres sprawling over California and some of Nevada. Horses were chased by a helicopter into this trap. wranglers are seen here, running up to slam the gate on the newly captured mustangs. Near the end, a judas horse is released and the mustangs follow the Judas horse into the trap corral. Thousands of horses have been rounded up this year already!
This is a terrible, ignorant inhumanity and a sure road to the extinction of the wild horse and burros in America. Protests ad concerns, are world wide now!

Please call and write your senators and congressmen. Ask for a moratorium on all roundups, until the NAS can perform their scientific studies! Write to Obama! Hold a protest n your town. Let your voice be heard for the American wild herds. This includes the wild burros, that are also being removed from our public lands.

SILVER KING ROUNDUP: Braveheart suffers mortal injury defending his family

This is so heartbreaking. This stallion was trying to protect his mare and foal from strangers! The insensitivity of the wrangler, tying his horse close to the newly captured and frightened horses, is shocking and unacceptable! This is bordering on ignorance, but more likely, it is the lack of caring, and common sense. This man needs to find a new job, that does not involve working with wild horses! That poor stallion, and now his family too, have been tortured to such an extent, to first endure all the fear of the helicopter chase, and then sudden death of the head of the family, their beloved stallion. BLM is the agency appointed to be the stewards of our mustangs and burros. Is this care? NO, this is sick, and the shame of America! Look at the BLM website gather , and facility reports, and time after time, you will find horses euthanized because of broken necks!!! ROUNDUPS MUST END!

I also learned that they loaded the terrified mare into a long trailer, and then put her dead "Braveheart" sorrel stallion, in the same trailer, literally at her feet, with a tarp over him. How sick is that! The foal was also separated from the mare. The family ripped apart. Death is not an option. We need humane people working with our horses, always!
