Want to tell the Bureau of Land Management how YOU feel about their plans to remove mustangs from the range?
Here's an easy way to be herd. I mean, heard!
Heart too full to know what to say?
That's me, delivering hand written and horse decorated letters from my readers who have a HEART FOR HORSES to Senator Harry Reid, a few years ago.
But the horses are still in trouble, and we need to do it again, this time directly to the BLM.
HOWEVER ----- I'm hearing from lots of you who want to stand up for the horses, but doing know what to say.
Here's a sample letter you may modify to fit your thoughts and feelings. Please feel free to share it with your friends, parents and teachers.
Dear Secretary Salazar:
The Bureau of Land Management has rounded-up thousands of America's wild horses. Now, it may kill them. Over and over again Americans have said their horses must run free, but that hasn't stopped BLM from saying that killing wild horses is a "magic bullet for budget problems."
Instead if spending millions of dollars on flashy helicopter round-ups, please halt all round-ups until independent observors can assess range conditions and take accurate counts of wild and domestic animals on the land.
Don't hope our wild horses can balance the budget with their lives.
I want them to still be roaming free when I finally get the chance to see them.

Emergency Call to Action for Mustang Foals
Nevada's wild horses are in danger NOW.
The Nevada Department of Agriculture has given orders to kill orphan mustangs even though these babies were being nursed back to health in the homes of wild horse "angels".
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS: Next Wednesday, July 22, I will be part of a group which will carry petitions to Nevada's governor.
If you'd like to show Governor Gibbons that people all over the world consider wild horses a treasure, please click here http://www.thepetitionsite.com/4/speak-up-for-the-wild-horses to sign the petition and please ask your friends and family to do the same.
I'll speak up for you and the horses!
