Comments for Wild Horse Freedom Federation http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org Putting People between Wild Equines & Extinction Mon, 26 Jun 2017 17:05:45 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.5 Comment on Journalists are in love with cowboys, and so wild horses will die. by Maggie Frazier http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/blog/journalists-love-cowboys-wild-horses-will-die/#comment-2936 Mon, 26 Jun 2017 17:05:45 +0000 http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/?p=683#comment-2936 Thinking about the title of this article – ANYONE can put on a “cowboy hat” and wear “cowboy boots”.  This does NOT make them a cowboy nor does it cause them to have any more knowledge or experience with wild horses!  That takes more than a hat & boots.

Comment on Journalists are in love with cowboys, and so wild horses will die. by Maggie Frazier http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/blog/journalists-love-cowboys-wild-horses-will-die/#comment-2935 Mon, 26 Jun 2017 13:56:23 +0000 http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/?p=683#comment-2935 The article was – putting it mildly – not research, or done with any kind of journalistic integrity!
The people who commented – many names I recognized – certainly made it very clear how sad an opinion piece this was! And most spelled out exactly why they disagreed & stated the truth of the matter.
Seems like the word is actually getting out – finally!  As always, Vickery hit the nail on the head!!

Comment on Texas equine advocate speaks out against “donkey basketball” by Lisa Roberts http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/news-alerts/texas-equine-advocate-speaks-donkey-basketball/#comment-2928 Wed, 17 May 2017 17:55:35 +0000 http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/?p=655#comment-2928 Have any of attended a donkey basketball befor game meeting?  I have.  The riders are instructed on the rules for woking with these skilled animal actors.  The donkeys are smart, gentle, and well trained. 

The donkeys do work for a living, but usually less than 8 hours a week.  Their caregivers feed, water, groom, keep their feet clean trimmed and shod. 

The donkeys are eager to enter the gym.  They play in a halter, no bit, no curb chain.  At halftime they are petted,loved on, riden, and slipped treats.  The audience laughs at their friends being out smarted by the donkeys, having to clean up after the donkeys.  The donkes laugh at the riders as well.  Donkeys laugh just like horses laugh. 

The donkeys are not frightened, mistreated, and they know what to do to get laughs.  Donkeys are very smart and like slapstick comedy.

There are animals who are abused but, these donkeys are not.

It is time to change the culture towards animals and show future generations that this is not right.  It is never right to be cruel to an animal any animal!

Comment on Please Comment on BLM’s Plan to Decimate Wild HorseHerds in North Lander Complex by Brenda Rapoport http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/news-alerts/please-comment-blms-plan-decimate-wild-horseherds-north-lander-complex/#comment-2906 Sat, 04 Feb 2017 20:52:15 +0000 http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/?p=564#comment-2906 You need to have a document/ petition already written up for these animals that people can sign and have sent directly to blm or other adversaries of animals and animal wildlife.  What they propose to do is very sad, sadistic and unnecessary. It makes you wonder about their mental wellbeing. These people are very frightening people if they cam do this to wildlife so needlessly. I wonder where they would stand under a psychiatric study.  Maybe this group of people need to endure what these beautiful creatures have to endure at the hands of such sick people….

Comment on Call to Action: Please Comment to Stop the Dangerous and Cruel Adobe Town Wild Mare Radio Collar Study by judy collins http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/news-alerts/call-action-please-comment-stop-dangerous-cruel-adobe-town-wild-mare-radio-collar-study/#comment-2901 Wed, 07 Dec 2016 23:44:50 +0000 http://wildhorsefreedomfederation.org/?p=556#comment-2901 i just read and learned about the proposed roundup of the adobe town herd horses with collaring of the mares.  ms. walker wrote a very convincing and incisive essay and i couldn’t agree more.  the blm’s objectives are NOT in the best interests of the wild horses and i hope the new president will help dismantle them completely.  they are a moral outrage and must be purged.
