Back to work today! These guys are truley special. They are thought to be a distinct species with 66 chomosomes rather than 64. Once almost extinct they are wild and free in the mountain regions of the Hustai National Park in Russia. I give you... The Przewalski's horse. #wildhorses#painting
Day 6: time to wind down and relax fully. An hour on the beach a couple hours looking for horses. Driving on the beach and almost getting hit by a Jeep. The weather was great and experience was even better. Until next time. So....August 😂😂 #4x4#wildhorses#corollaobx2017#lastday
🌻Like a midsummer nights dream 🌻... Happy midsummer to my peeps in 🇸🇪 I hope you eat strawberries🍓 for me and go skinny dipping in the middle of the night while the sun never sets, Sail boats to the different islands and make out with someone like you're 16. 💫🦋 in the end that's what it's all about.
The Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management insist that America’s wild horses are being removed to “restore the range,” but we know that rhetoric is misleading, as wild horses occupy less than 12% of public lands, and consume roughly 16% of available forage. Meanwhile, livestock and extractive industries are perpetually granted more and more land on which to conduct their environmentally crippling initiatives—this is an outrage!
The government’s scapegoating of these innocent animals is thorough, and they’ve invented all sorts of lies and distractions to try and convince the public that they have no choice but to slaughter these horses—but this is simply false propaganda from the swamp in Washington, nothing more! They insist that they must cull the wild horse population because they have no natural predators, but they don’t tell you that they have also been working diligently to wipe out the horse’s natural predators as well! They claim that the wild horses are doing terrible damage to the vegetation on the great plains, but as we already know, wild horses make up 12% of the animal population on our public lands; meanwhile, livestock makes up roughly 88% and are allowed to be “self-monitored” by those who own the livestock—how can that be a reliable system?! Even the BLM will admit that cattle outnumber horses on public land by 30-1, so how can our horses be responsible for the deterioration of our great plains—they barely have a presence there at all!
When will this administration wake up and realize that there are organizations like ours that could do so much to help our horses without costing taxpayers a dime? These animals assisted us in the building of this great country of ours, and how have we repaid them? By taking their land away and slaughtering them! This cannot be allowed to continue, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that America’s wild horses are given the support that they deserve!
