Wild Horse Roundups are not needed! Alot of horses have been killed because of how the roundup people chase them to the pen. There are alot of people throughout the USA and more who love horses, if I were any of you within the Wild Horse Roundup area's I'd race my horse to each wild horses aid and litteraly force my way through to prevent the wild horse roundups! At the rate they go there will hardly be any wild horses to see in the wide open plains, because they keep on rounding em up mainly all seasons long. If you want proof I found plenty of harsh pictures related to the stupid Wild Horse Roundups from photobucket. I can add alot more pictures, I know there are horse lovers around so please act to help save the Wild Horses. : /

Hey There All,

I hope after the roundups if they have to be done there put to good use. Here in Australia there is a one guy i know started to put them to good use with natural horsemanship techniques and working with kids of the street. He is a true inspiration to the Horse world.



Unfortunately after they're captured most of the humans send them to the slaughter areas, there are people doing what they can to save them from the terrible humans who mean harm to horses. Hundreds are rounded up everyday and rarely ever released back to their formal home.

It keeps getting worse and worse. None of those stuck up nobles or anything want to do anything about it. And also LadySmiles, While I know your opinion is sincere but honestly, the human race delivers more birth than these majestic creatures. From the way its also been going, they're removing these creatures in exchange for the pathetic cows! The horses were their long before those filthy farm animals ever set foot!

I am in agreement that wild horses should be treated with the respect and dignity that they deserve. However, to just stand back and do nothing is just as harmful. The wild horse perserves are basicaly large pastures and need to be managed. The inbreeding and the unchecked breeding of the wild horses creates problems of there own. I urge you not to just throw a blanket over the hole project but to talk to the wild horse management and find ways to help them take the best care of the wild horses as possible.

It depresses me to think about the wild horse roundups. We need to bring the awarness to more people and find a way to stop this horror. Are any of you posting the photos on fb? The message has to gotten out to as may people as possible.

Quoting aussiegirl60:

I live in Australia what do they do with the horses after they round them up.

I was appauled to see them using a helicopter to do this at such a low level.

In the outback of Australia they use helicopters to round up but they do it up high so they animals move forward safely. Also in Australia's outback it can take 8 hours to drive in a car across one paddock so they have to use helicopters to get the job done .

 



There's no telling what the government does while allowing humans to round up wild mustangs. They've been chased by helicopters for over a year, my guess is that they ship em off to any buyers, butchers, etc. They should just leave them in there natural habitat which is in the wilderness. Thousands fo wild mustangs have been rounded up like so worldwide. I'll always keep my horse safe, and will allow nothing bad to ever happen to him. He may look like his mom for color of the Strawberry Roan and his dad a desendant of the Black Stallion which also runs in my horses' veins, but he has more of his mom's personality, and color but is built like his dad. We've been best friends ever since he was a day old.

(The picture below is 1 my Grandpa took a picture of many many years ago.)

I am so sorry and I do understand.  The picture above makes me ill.  I have a mare mustang I love dearly.  She is from AZ.  My parents have a house there and actually investigated her capture sight, talked to the blm and the guy actually remembered.  They took a pic of the mountains for me to have.  She is a wonderful horse and we always do what we can to help stop the slaughter of the wild horses.
