Story of Velma Johnston

Good job Elizabeth!

The WHB Act has been amended several times by ranching interests (visible at top of frame at 1:50) and no longer affords the protections sought by Velma.  This is the challenge going forward: Roll back the changes and put an end to public-lands ranching.

Today, more and more horses are being forced off their home range (public lands) so their food can be sold to privately owned cattle and sheep.

Adoptions don’t keep pace with the roundups so most of them end up in government corrals or contracted pastures.  No family, no foals, no legacy.
