Texas lost its Wild Horses

Did you know that Texas alone use to have over 1 million wild horses?

   Independent analysis of BLM’s own numbers reveal there may be only 15,000 wild horses currently remaining on public lands…. thousands fewer than when the 1971 Wild Horse & Burro Law was passed.

·      Very few herds left in the wild are genetically viable (meaning over 150 adults, allowing for herd to sustain itself)

·      It costs the American taxpayers over $110,000 a day to feed the 36,0000 wild horses the government has moved from the range to short and long-term holding (that is $44 million cost annually to American taxpayers).

·      BLM proposes to roundup an nearly 12,000 more wild horses and burros this fiscal year alone, likely only 3000 will be adopted

The BLM is always asking for more money, a larger budget, to store wild horses in holding pens…. ‘for the good of the horse’.

Please take a stand for Wild Horses!
