The BLM’s photos of the horses up for auction & sale on Sept 26, 2009 near Lovell Wyoming
All 57 either adopted or sold to good homes!
4 bands of Forest Service horses, 15 total including Floyd and Conquistador and his mare will be kept together at a ranch near their homeland.
Ember and Image get to stay together, have a great home, also adopted into great homes were Arrow, Rain, Helena Montana, Stiles, Cassidy, the lame foal with his mom, who is looking better, and Ginger got Sax.
Conquistador had the record bid – $2500
Huge thanks to all the Freedom Fund donars and all the supporters who made this possible – this is a big win…. TCF
On a sad note, Ginger and others visited the horses on Pryor Mountain, and they are reporting that many of the horses are still foot-sore and lame… even Cloud, the most famous living Wild Stallion. It was difficult to watch them even walk over to the watering hole.
It is so sad what this roundup has done to these horses. The BLM has over 31,000 horses it is holding and could be sold, yet they just had to torment this herd to gather 57 more horses at a huge taxpayer’s expense.
