' Cloud's' Pryor Mountain Herd

Please visit Baba Yaga's Mirror and Wild Horse Warriors today for more information. It's important to understand what is happening to our wild horses in this country. We can and should do all we can to prevent this travesty from taking place. Putting aside the selfish political and economic motives, it becomes clear that this is a moral crisis. These historic herds - these living, breathing horses - deserve better than this and we must be their advocates, as they are helpless pawns caught in the path of a cold and calculating beef industry dictating its will to an uncaring government. Worse, they are the victims of unsympathetic humans who allow this to happen.

Or, perhaps, we are the victims, because we stand by and allow special interests to dictate to us; we allow others to rob us of our heritage, destroy our natural world and act against our moral instinct. Upon their ancestors' backs, our ancestors founded this nation; native peoples of this land made their homes on horseback, and cultivated the roots of our great American breeds from these horses. Our history is in their DNA. They deserve better than to have their existence wiped from the landscape and from history by our hands, with such cruelty and shame, for the sake of our greed.

On another note, today is the scheduled roundup for Cloud's herd in the Pryor Mountains. For more information please visit the Angels for Cloud site for extra information.

Quote for Today

“The animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the sense we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.”
