It’s Thursday, July 14, 2011, and we are driving away from the courthouse. Although we are hopeful, all we can do now is pray. The Judge seemed to listen very carefully, and seemed concerned about the welfare of the horses. With the gathers planned to begin in two days, emotions are high, and all we can do is once again wait for the court’s decision.
I wish there was a way to know the truth, and I mean the accurate and complete and whole truth about exactly what the facts are. Wouldn’t it be nice to know FOR SURE, THE EXACT NUMBER OF THE HORSES OUT THERE AND THE TRUE CONDITION OF THE LAND??? It would also be cool to know exactly how much rain each area would get too, but I guess that shows how futile a wish this really is.
I also would like to find a way to work TOGETHER. We so need to do that, as we waste so much time and energy fighting both sides when that energy and the finances could be used for the horses.
I know that at the BLM Advisory Board hearing in Phoenix, there was a group that has access to a helicopter (or owns one) and offered to deliver water to horses in Nevada wherever it was needed. Once again the lines of communication have not been utilized. Here we have a major issue where BLM is having to import water, when there are volunteers ready and willing to do that.
Anyone knowing the name of the group volunteering to do that, would you please let me know the information?
Thanks to everyone who attended yesterday. Everyone was very respectful and the Judge stated how impressed he was that so many people care about this and that it was great that with a group this large everyone was on their best behavior.
Back home to Suri and the gang. Take care and God Bless. Thank you for everyone who helps support the efforts of this great endeavor.
I already received email that I should be before Congress instead of in Reno, (and we haven't even left Reno yet) as they are the ones that gave the orders for the roundups. Hmmmmm I would love to go back to DC and fight the fight, but it is a very expensive one. We definitely need to keep working on this though, before there aren’t any more horses out there. So keep sending letters and calling everyone, Senators, Members of the House, and let’s “git er done”.
Hopefully we will have the results of the Judge's decision today. (I am late sending this out as I don't have internet 100% of the time yet - sorry :) )
