Director, producer, and cinematographer James Anaquad Kleinert, who directed the documentary “Wild Horses & Renegades“, has filed a 20-page letter with the BLM for the scoping period regarding the round up scheduled for Jicarilla Wild Horse Territory in northwestern New Mexico. He believes it very well may stop the round up.

“The scoping letter in my opinion is very powerful in bringing forth critical issues and forcing the BLM to confront its illegal practices,” states Kleinert.

Expressing gratitude to attorney Diane Wolfson for her support with the letter, Kleinert asks wild horses advocates to join him by sending the letter to blm_nm_ffo_comments@blm.gov with a copy to JTafoya@blm.gov.

“This letter can also be used as a draft letter for future BLM proposed round ups,” he adds.

  1. I have visited the Jicarilla Wild Horse Territory in New Mexico twice. The first in 2008 and most recently in May 2012. I went with Lynne Pomeranz, who sets up photography workshops (Wild Horse Workshops) to observe and photograph these beautiful horses in the wild. To say it changed my life sounds like a cliche, but I acquired a new understanding of horse behavior. I came to know these horses by their names and appreciate the family units, the personalities and the everday life of a herd. This area is fairly remote so these horses do not get as much press as other areas but they deserve just as much of a chance of remaining free. I hope this can happen for them. I hope that others get the chance to go and see them like I did. I’m not a professional photographer, just enjoy photographing horses – See my photos from my trip here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/cdnmich/collections/72157630452762606/


  2. Every year over 130,000 U.S. horses are sold to slaughter and shipped to Canada and Mexico to avoid U.S. horse slaughter bans. 80% of Americans are against horse slaughter. Tens of millions of our tax dollars are being used by federal govt agencies to facilitate known kill-buyers illegal access to our horses. Especially mustangs through the BLM federal office. Its time for humanity to re-evaluate what a horse is truly worth. And realize in this time of personal, social and world-crisis, how important horses are as one of the few alternative paths we have left to our own survival.
