  1. So furious that we seem to be continuously fighting for the right of wild horses to exist peacefully. Thought BLM and Forest Service had finally gotten the message that these animals are protected and loved. Extremely grateful to you for staying in the fight.

    1. Unfortunately, Cheryle, these horses are not being recognized as wild and free-roaming under the 1971 Wild Free-roaming Horses and Burros Act. We are fighting to establish that they have been living in the Alpine Forest prior to the 1971 Act and therefore protected. See our latest post for up-to-date details.

    1. Hi Tori. Sorry for the delayed reply. We were just informed of the judge’s decision and posted what has been going on. See our newest post for all the information. The Forest Services has not backed off.
