It took me a long time to do this post, good thing because when I saw the video I was so angry that had I posted at the time I would have looked ( sounded) like a total fool. I may still. You will have to watch the video and read what I wrote below to decide that for yourself.
To make things clear I am not judging whether or not there should be Wild Horse Management. I am openly and with disgust judging the methods displayed in this video. I also have to admit that I don't know much about the laws regarding the Wild Horses. I don't live in those areas where they may affect my life so I am somewhat neutral with an opinion about that.. however I believe there is an absolute right way and a so wrong way to go about achieving some kind of management program. What I saw in this video makes me sick. Here I will address the bastards in this video as if they might actually see this. You people are lower than pond scum and so to the people that would allow you to behave in such a brutal.....cruel....and sadistic manner. I am not in the habit of wishing bad things on people but I truly hope Karma comes back to bite your sorry asses. If that is what you have come up with as a management program you really need to start over and come up with a better solution. I find it very difficult to understand why these horses are not being treated as a treasured part of your countries history. I mean really if not for the horse all of your forefathers would still be trying(hoofing it) to make it out west. This video is just another sad reminder that the human race really hasn't evolved nearly as much as we would like to believe. We are probably the most savage species on the planet.It's not just the Wild Horses it is the Baby Seals - The Dolphins - Whales and People... on and on it goes. I don't know when the vast majority started turning a blind eye but I surely believe it is this that is hugely responsible for how callous and cold the human race has become. OK that's it I just had to get that said, also I want it to be understood that I don't believe the whole human race sucks but I'm starting to worry that the ones that don't are becoming a minority.On a brighter note...while checking out some blogs the other day I landed on the Pioneer Woman ( haven't been there for awhile) Lo and Behold I came across a post by The Marlboro Man( In case you didn't know the Husband) it was about Wild Horses. This is something I did not know about and so I cannot say how many Ranchers do this but for every evil maybe there is a good. These guys care for Wild Horses 500 - at times 3200. Now I have to say they get paid for it but who cares why.....actually I believe he said yes they get paid but he also said it's fun. I think I might have also heard a whisper of pride in what they do....like maybe they are proud to be able to preserve some of their heritage. Kudos to you and any others like you...maybe there will be some Wild Horses around for the Grandkids and Great Grandkids to see and hear stories about.
