Hi ya'll. I guess we are making baby steps in the fight to stop the roundups. Although BLM's decision to still round up the 7600 horses a year is not what we want, we have to be glad that at least there are 2400 who get a chance to live at least a year longer. Doesn't sound like much in some ways, but every horse we save is a victory, at least for that horse. We are starting to make a difference and we need to keep this in the public eye, each and every day. We can't let it get swept under the rug.
Honey Bandit and all the lost horses he represents should be the conversation at every dinner table in America. Everyone should be contacting their representatives to let them know we want change. Obviously people are doing this, and it does make a difference, as there has been a lot of rumbling in congress about issues with the BLM. But the members of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus told us they need EVERYONE to contact them. But every single baby step we are taking is making a difference. I would like to thank everyone out in the field taking these videos and pictures, because that, along with HB's story, really got everyone's attention in DC.
We need to make sure that everyone else in America sees the information and what the reality is. So many people don't even know what is going on. Very few people at the tv station knew about the roundups and they were horrified at what happens.
We have a step forward from BLM. I hope and pray that we can actually make some really good changes from this starting point. If they are going to be willing to work with us, then we should be ready. We need to stop thinking about what we can't change, what is already done, and start thinking about what we can change.
I want to work with BLM, so when a foal drops or is at risk, we get that foal the very same day. I know that I have notified Litchfield that we will drop everything and come no matter what time day or night if there is a foal that needs to be picked up.
I also know that we all hate what happened to Honey Bandit, but I will be eternally grateful that I was given the chance to take care of him. If BLM hadn't given us Honey Bandit, he would have died, so although mistakes were made, the decision on that day was a good one and it saved his life.
God bless all of you for all your hard work. There are so many amazing people out there saving these horses. It is an honor to work with ya'll.
Thank you for your continued support. Without you we can't do it.
