Just a quick update on our boy. Honey Bandit loves the snow. He will bury his face up to his eyeballs and 'plow" around the yard. Of course he stops doing that when I get out there with the video. He and DaBubbles and Patches buck and kick and seem to think that the snow was dropped just for their fun.
His new blanket is a little bit too large, so I kind of "git er done'd" it. ha ha. I used the back straps to wrap it more securely. It was completely safe and almost like he had a girth on him. So he not only got the feel of some "saddle strappage", but he was warm and toasty and there was no danger of the little guys getting their legs caught in the straps. The last time I put a new blanket on him and used the back leg straps, Patches had reared up and caught both front feet about 4 times in the first five minutes. Of course you know what that means....... no back straps for Honey Bandit.
I am so grateful that we got to go to D.C., and am extremely happy about the results of that trip. We had some very special advocates there, but we couldn't have done it without all the footage and videos that all the people out in the field are compiling, nor without the financial help and loans to cover that trip. Now the next step is Phoenix, at the BLM Advisory Board Meetings. We appreciate any help ya'll can come up with. If you think that this is important, please support this. I am asking for the horses. We are making a difference. No one (besides God) can move a mountain in one day. However, we are making the first of many baby steps. We can move the mountain, one rock at a time, one step at a time. But we cannot do it alone. Whether you are 'hands on" taking care of a horse, or helping by donation of time and/or money, we need you. This is definitely the crucial time for all of us.
Honey Bandit's story is not about a "cute little pony". It is about improper use of millions of tax dollars, inhumane treatment of animals, whether it be intentional or not. HONEY BANDIT is there to always remind us of all the other foals and horses that died and might be forgotten. Honey Bandit is making sure they are not forgotten. His story is powerful enough that he made congress sit up and listen, and it needs to continue to be told.
Sooooooo, next thing is funding the trip to Phoenix. Anyone who is able should join us all there. There will be a candle light vigil to remember all of our lost and fallen horses, and this is a huge chance to show everyone that we are serious and we want change. The American public does not want to keep throwing away their tax dollars and injuring/destroying our national heritage - our wild horses. So show Honey Bandit his story matters. Support us in any way you can. Thank you so much for everyone who has brought him this far. God Bless. Honey Bandit & the gang.
