Rocky ~ abandoned foal rescued.




Palomino & Matt on their way home with Rocky in the trailer. Palomino will care for him in her rescue until he is old enough to be adopted out to a loving home. Sure that Matt will be helping too!




Rocky in the trailer, heading to Shingletown, California, with Palomino & Matt to their Chili Pepper Miracle Mustang Rescue.



"ROCKY" & Shirley Allen at her foal rescue in Nevada.

Rocky was found alone on the range, only days old. His band could not be located so he was brought into a local rescue in Nevada with Shirley Allen. Palomino, Shirley & Matt monitored the foal constantly for about 3 or 4 days, before he was allowed to travel to Shingletown, to Palomino's foal rescue.

Tax deductible paypal donations of $5.00 & up, can be made for his care & for other foal rescues to come @ Palominodancer@yahoo.com.

Thank you in advance for supporting rescue foals!

Its takes work to stay in such great shape! Impressive, please share your secrets..... ; )

Excerpt from the ~ Barbi Twins.....

"Horses are as symbolic as the country they built, America. It is a shame we don’t give them the respect they have earned. For centuries, horses shed their blood to give their service to us. It says a lot when a country has better laws for its flag (that doesn’t have a spine or feel pain), then it does for the horses. Horse slaughter and the wild-horse round ups have been the buzz in the media recently."

Craig Downer announces his new book ~ "The Wild Horse Conspiracy"




Proudly announcing the publication of a pivotal book for America’s wild horses and burros that has been over 4 years in preparation
THE WILD HORSE CONSPIRACY
by Craig C. Downer, Wildlife Ecologist and Author (Date of Publication: 1/18/2012)

This stirring and amply illustrated, 300-page book fully justifies America’s magnificent wild horses and burros while countering the biased machinations against them. Written by an ecologist who grew up observing these animals in the West, it presents new evidence concerning their history and evolution in North America then describes their many positive contributions to soils, plants, animals and people. Though true restorers of this continent’s ecosystem, they have been unfairly targeted for elimination. Over the centuries, they have borne our burdens and helped us along life’s way—which makes it doubly unfair that they should be blamed for what we humans have done. As always, they stand ready to help us do the hard work now so desperately needed to restore our shared home. Many of the author’s personal experiences with these animals, their diverse herd areas, and the multicolored people involved with them are herein vividly shared. Urgently required now at the 40th anniversary of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act is a strategy to reverse the negative schemes that are causing their demise the wild. As described, Reserve Design provides a way for establishing self-stabilizing populations through intelligent and caring programs executed with enthusiasm. Their lesson for humanity concerns how to share freedom and the land with such paragons of nature. Soaring beyond mundane pettiness and with an inspired vision for the future of all life, the elevated perspective and compassionate spirit of this book will prove key to accomplishing its critical goal. In the wild the vigor of any kind is preserved. And the entire horse family—as the Earth itself—needs America’s wild horses and burros to continue at vital levels into the future here in their evolutionary cradle and worldwide.

The author has defended wild horses/burros against attacks for over 40 years and observed many of the West’s colorful herds. He has also studied the endangered mountain tapir and is president of the Andean Tapir Fund, also dedicated to saving wild horses/burros (www.andeantapirfund.com). He is a member of the IUCN Species Survival Commission and board member of The Cloud Foundation & has written popular and scientific articles & books, including action plans for endangered species. He enjoys nature photography and musical composition, lives in Nevada, and is proud companion of mustangs Lightning, a palomino stallion, and Princess Diane, his curly mare. He first knew them in the wilds of NW Nevada before they were captured by BLM in 2010.
