Advocates in Colorado give their voices to wild horses

Written by LINDA HANICK

On a beautiful fall morning in Boulder, CO, twenty to thirty folks of all ages, as well as dogs, assembled at the intersection of Canyon and Broadway to make a stand for our wild horses.

This is one of the busiest places in Boulder, near the huge Boulder Farmer’s Market. We were able to reach 100’s and 100’s of people on foot and in cars. This is our second event at this location in the past 6 months, and it was apparent that more and more people know about BLM’s rounding up of our wild horses.

From their cars, they were not only asking what is up with the wild horses but were also asking, “What can I do?” We distributed flyers with our Senators’ and Representatives’ phone #’s and email addresses, as well as that of the President, Salazar, and Bob Abbey. We also added informational websites for folks to learn more and for them to tell their elected representatives that the Senate Appropriations Committee must NOT approve any more money for the BLM until there is a moratorium on roundups and a new direction for wild horse management.

We were so pleased that there were some new folks in Colorado who joined us this time.

We ARE making a difference!

  2. Ken Salazar is from Colorado! Hopefully with a new Congress we can rid ourselves of this vicious, cruel man in the position he has garnered. Kudo’s to all of you who are working on behalf of our beautiful horses, our voices in Oregon also fall on deaf ears.

  3. Good day, good number of advocates, and getting better all the time. I was especially pleased to hear, “What can I do?” Our success depends on DOING, not ranting.

    I LOVE the white-haired lady peeking up over the R.O.A.M sign (even though the sign is confusing). I hope I have the same kind of dedication and spunk when I’m her age!

  5. YEAH! We need these save our horses rallys all over the country. Let’s try for at least one every week somewhere in the U.S. We need to inform all American Citizens what BLM is doing and get help to Stop them before these Beautiful and harmless Wild Horses and Burros are extinct. They are a National Treasure and should be allowed to live forever on the Land Designated for them by the Law in 1971. BLM is spending millions and millions of dollars to drive our National Treasure to EXTINCTION. This is your tax money at work – we need to band together to stop this unnecessary waste of money. Please keep demonstrating, calling your representatives and the President and support the cause to save the Wild Horses and Burros.
