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!
