Wild Mares Mother’s Day Campaign

Send a Mother’s Day Card to the First Lady

This is a quick yet potentially powerful campaign to raise more awareness concerning our wild horses who are being rounded up and held captive long-term by the BLM where they are suffering great harm from abrupt displacement from their lands and herds, insufficient care and overall mistreatment and mismanagement.

Included in these roundups are the Calico mares separated from their foals, spontaneously aborting their foals, watching while a callous wrangler lassos her terrified foal by his frail legs, throwing him to the ground in a sadistic game or her foals dying from shock, exhaustion, dehydration, exposure to the elements or literally run off their hooves.

Please send a Mother’s Day card to the First Lady.

Write an inscription inside your Mother’s Day card, or enclose a letter with it.

An inscription might be, “In honor of the Mustang Mother Mares who have lost their foals, please ask the President to call a halt to all wild horse roundups and an investigation into the BLM.”

Sign your name, and include your city and state. Youngsters, please include your age.

If you opt to include a letter, this is an opportunity to make it personal, from you. Tell our First Lady how you really feel about what is happening to our wild horses and burros. Sit down with a blank piece of paper and pour out your heart. That will mean more to Mrs. Obama than any number of facts or figures. If you do this, she may even show it to Mr. Obama!

Address:

First Lady Michelle Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20500

Note: Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so please act quickly. All mail to the First Lady must go through security before being delivered to her. Thank you.

  1. I pray to God that these Mothers Day cards will start her to thinking about our Magnificent Horses, Wild and Domestic!

    1. We do too, Sandra. We should continue to act with intention, and keep our thoughts positive. Defeated thinking will keep us just that, defeated. Prayer is an important part of keeping good energy surrounding and helping our wild horses and burros.

    1. No, it’s too late. It doesn’t matter if she does get some after Mother’s Day. The First Lady will understand, and hopefully will have too big a mountain of cards to notice! Thank you for taking part.

  2. You are welcome, it’s ALL sad, but the worst part for me, because no one is allowed to bear witness for these horses during the week, we have no way of knowing how long this Mom suffered; when did they find her; after a nighttime of suffering? , after hearing her throes through all the cries of the other horses? did they let her go for hours? we will never know and that is of itself a tragedy.

  3. FYI, there is another mama mare to honor as well, update per BLM, a 3 year old mare was euthanized today in Fallon NV when she was unable to give birth to her foal, I am also assuming that the baby died as well, but BLM’s policy does not count foals until they are 4-5 months old.

    1. Thank you, Louie. Please send it along with your Mother’s Day card to the First Lady. I hope others might do the same. Everyone, please feel free to make this campaign about you and your feelings by personalizing it. This will give it the “wow” factor that we encourage. Post your ideas here in comments, or on our Facebook page.

  7. I am urging you to tell your husband to stop these horrific roundups of wild horses & burrows. What is happening is criminal & the BLM should be investigated for what they are doing. Ken Salazar does not care about these horses & what happens to them! Please, please stop these atrocities now. The Wild Horses continue to suffer from the cruelty of the BLM!
