BLM: TELL THE TRUTH & YOU WON'T HAVE TO REMEMBER THE LIES

Despite the hot weather deaths of this weekend, BLM still plans to round up 6,000 wild horses by summer's end.
The BLM said it plans to conduct the summertime "gather" of 2,300 horses and 280 burros from the Twin Peaks area in northern California (home to the small herd in the photo above) to avoid doing it later in the fall, when it would conflict with deer hunting season.
Readers, I guess I'm getting suspicious and skeptical because I just bet the reason for this round-up will change before long. BLM will say they're "gathering" for the horses' own good, or range protection, just as the Tuscarora horses were dying of thirst this week. Last week the Tuscarora mustangs were being gathered for knocking down fences.
BLM, here's a tip: TELL THE TRUTH AND YOU WON'T HAVE TO REMEMBER THE LIES.
Hugs to you with humane hearts,

In the photo, the grey looks like he or she is trying to lead his herd to safety or trying to make the right decision in order to lead his dependent herd away from man and his machienes..
How can I help to stop this.
I have a colt that was born last year after round-up and the mare died. I had to bottle feed the colt.
Please let me what I can do to help stop these round-ups.
I am sorry that the foal's mare died. But I'm glad you kept the colt!!
Here are some ways that I help out. You can call your state senator or send him an email and ask him to support the ban on wild horse roundups. Also emailing the President on the matter would help. This site is a major help to that!
