Wild Horse Wednesday – Lexington, KY

Lexington, Kentucky is the “Horse Capital of the World”. So what better place to hold a protest against the man made plight of wild horses? Today all throughout the county, horse lovers and others joined voices and told the world what they think about the current mismanagement of America’s wild horses by the government body charged with their stewardship, the Bureau of Land Management.

These are passionate people. It’s cold out there – all over – and yet they came. Out they came with their home made signs and a willingness to speak out about the rough, careless and downright inhumane treatment currently being perpetrated on thousands of mustang horses being herded together into great groups in tight quarters where the natural instincts of these creatures, who usually gather in much smaller numbers, kick in. Fights break out between stallions and other males, between mares and other females. They bite and kick and injuries are common. Sometimes deadly.

There are plentiful resources about what’s happening. I invite you to click on some of the links here and follow their well traveled trails of information. www.horsefund.org, www.thecloudfoundation.org, www.equineconnection.org

In the meantime have a look at our demonstration here in Lexington today. It was twenty degrees with a light snow falling. Lexington isn’t a big city. If our same group was in New York this gathering would have been MASSIVE. Instead it was intense dedicated and we even had some laughs.
