message 16: by Sephiroth (new)

Sephiroth (Cinderbolt) i googled "bureau of land management" and found their main website. there's a "contact us" form there where you can e-mail them. are the horses being killed for sure? i'm readying an e-mail now.

message 17: by [deleted user] (new)


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

i don't know if they are being killed for sure. don't say anything about that.

message 19: by Sephiroth (new)

Sephiroth (Cinderbolt) okay, i'll just say relocated and ask them where? is that ok with everyone?

Cloud has an extra two days everyone!!

message 26: by Sephiroth (new)

Sephiroth (Cinderbolt) yay! my message has been forwarded to the Wild Horse and Burro Program for reply. when i get their reply, i'll copy and paste it here!

message 27: by Sephiroth (new)

Sephiroth (Cinderbolt) okay, i want everyone who can to do this EXACTLY as it is typed here. Google "bureau of land manangement" (yes spell it out). the first one that should appear is the BLM's main website. Click on it, and on the left side of the site, click on "contact us" and then "e-mail". send them emails, and they will be forwarded to the BLM's wild horse and burro program for reply. this may help stall the roundup!

message 28: by [deleted user] (new)


message 29: by Sephiroth (new)

Sephiroth (Cinderbolt) DO THIS ASAP!!! Swamp them with so many emails they can't ignore us!

message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay, peeps. I read the Q&A For why they're rounding up the horses. I thought that the more I read, the more logical it sounded. Don't worry, I'm still against it, but maybe we should think before rebelling.

1. They're going to round up the horses because of the poor shape of the range they live on.

2. They'll capture all 190 horses, and let 120 free. The rest will be put up for adoption and sale to eligible buyers.

3. They will, however, keep original bands together, at least the ones that are released.

4. They didn't say anything about Cloud, but..

See? It seems a tad bit logical..

message 31: by Sephiroth (new)

Sephiroth (Cinderbolt) not really. these horses are wild; they belong there. the land cant be in poor shape if the horses are healthy.

message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

But it isn't. read the Q&A.

message 33: by [deleted user] (last edited Sep 01, 2009 03:55PM) (new)

Here are my reasons;

Yes I know, but Cloud could be one of those 70 horses set up for adoption.
And the Q&A is just in general.
What they are doing to the mares is not right.
Many of the foals are hurt in the round up from running for miles.
It's not always true, about keeping the original bands together. Cloud once got seperated from his Batchlor Stallion band. It took him awile to find a new one.( 1 week or so.) That's a long time to be by yourself.

message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

Yeah, I'm still against it. I think that what they'll do to the horses is bad, but in one way it's kind of good. At least for the land. I don't like the fact that they don't care about how the foals could get separated, etc. I'm just saying that if the land isn't in very good shape, the horses, at one time or another, won't be either.

message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

I know that's true.

message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

Sorry, I just don't exactlt like the BLM.

message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

Me neither. I don't like the people. You know what makes me really mad? The people who think that just because horses and other animals can't speak, they don't have feelings!

message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

Go to the Cloud Foundation website and read, read, read. There's to many things to post. I'll post them tomorrow.

Status Update

Sept. 4th- Day 2 of Pryors Roundup- UPDATE
19 more horses from the lower desert portion of the Pryors range were rounded up by helicopter today, none were injured but with temps in the 90's the foals looked a bit sore and tired by the time those to be set free were released. We are not giving up- the BLM is planning on removing around 40 horses tomorrow, completely, from the Custer National Forest. Field Manager Jim Sparks told us today that all those horses "fall within removal criteria" but truly they are just removing all of them. From 21 year old mares like Grumpy Grulla (who used to be with Raven) to young foals and the 19-year-old band stallion Conquistador. The older horses especially should not be removed. The BLM plans to helicopter drive these horses into traps on Commissary Ridge in the Custer National Forest and trailer them for nearly two hours down the mountain to the holding pens at Britton Springs near Lovell, WY. They are zeroing out the whole subpopulation of Forest Service horses who live outside the designated range. This is not the way to manage a small herd on the brink of genetic viability.

Famous Mustang Torn from His Herd

LOVELL, WYOMING - SEPTEMBER 3, 2009 – In the searing 90-plus degree heat the first five mustangs, of less than 200 remaining in Montana’s only wild horse herd, are driven into corrals by a helicopter, forcibly removed from the rangeland they have occupied for hundreds of years. The Pryor wild horses and one palomino stallion in particular, Cloud, have been made world famous by the PBS Nature documentaries, the third of which will air this fall.

message 46: by Sephiroth (new)

Sephiroth (Cinderbolt) they still haven't replied to me, but maybe they won't kill the horses.

message 47: by [deleted user] (new)
