Wild Horse Annie's Legacy
Last night, people around the world honored Velma "Wild Horse Annie" Johnston for rounding up children and adults nationwide to get their members of Congress to pass legal protection for mustangs.
Last night we placed candles around a memorial stone and wished we could tell Annie that the mustangs were safe, but they would have been a lie.
Last night we studied the art on Annie's gravestone. A wild mare chased to a cliff's edge stares into the abyss. The young one behind her will follow her unless the stallion at the rear neighs a command. Is he staring back at the enemy, deciding to fight? Is he looking back for our help?
Whoever selected the art for Annie's grave knew the West's wild horses weren't out of danger.
We need to stand watch and stand up for the last of our wild horses.
During the holidays, let your friends and relatives know the wild horses are disappearing. Talk about the millions on millions of tax dollars wasted on cruelty and USE FACTS!
