|CALL TO ACTION ~|
This is Ella a Keiger Mustang that was once free to roam on the land set aside for her and her herd with1971 legislation~ Mustang Annie spent years and years of her life to preserve the land for Mustangs. Over the past 10 years there has been a systematic reduction of these Iconic American Symbols of Freedom. The BLM is breaking laws and removing mustangs and placing them in long term holding facilities on private land. The Roundups are brutal and done while mares are pregnant and foaling. The roundups are unnecessary and un lawful. The land is being taken over at tax payer expense by the Cattlemen who pay net loss lease fees. If you combine the lost revenue from the cattle leases and the 67 million spent per year on round ups and holding pens, you can see where the BLM needs to be held accountable.
Please Join us in placing calls on the Wild Mustangs Behalf to Ken Salazar
(202) 208-3100 Ask that the roundups cease and the mustangs in holding pens be returned to the wild
This beautiful mare Wilma and her cold Willy are a product of reckless breeding in the United States~ While it is a beautiful image this mare and her foal were on a "kill lot" awaiting transport to a slaughter plant. This should not happen, horse slaughter is a brutal practice and the horses suffer inhumane conditions while shipping and in the holding pens, their end of life is very painful and terrifying.
There is currently legislation The American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act H.R. 2966/S.B. 1176, that would end horse slaughter, end transportation of horses to foreign countries for slaughter and ultimately protect our American Horses.
Please Call and ask your legislators to support H.R. 2966 and S.B. 1176

While this is a great effort, we still must draft legislation on a state level to control the breeding of horses, over breeding places horses an over abundance state. Zuma's is working on drafting a first of it's kind legislation that would impose annual breeding fees and registration fees for horses in Colorado. These fees would serve two purposes; one would be to generate revenue to help provide for the homeless horses currently in our state and two would be to make breeding too expensive to abuse the privilege.
