So You Want to Help America’s Wild Horses?

Great.  Best way to do that?  Don’t focus on the horses.

Instead, learn about the policies, programs and organizations that are forcing them off the range and/or driving their numbers downward.

  • Grazing programs
  • Resource management plans
  • Public-lands ranchers, their overlords, cheerleaders and political allies
  • Outplacement programs (adoption, sale, training, shows)
  • Financial incentives
  • Advocacy groups that push contraceptives
  • Proponents of sanctuaries
  • Signatories to the Path Forward
  • Signatories to the PZP manifesto
  • Fuels reduction programs
  • Vegetation management programs
  • Statutes and regulations
  • Stock grower’s associations and farm bureaus
  • Departments of agriculture and wildlife
  • Colleges and universities
  • Rangeland resource commissions
  • County commissions
  • Public lands councils
  • Agricultural and hunting interests
  • Advisory boards

Where money is concerned, be very careful with your donations.
