Haven't posted here for a long while. If you live in the western portion of the US you have probably followed media coverage of the seizure of horses from Alliance NE. around the 21st of April, approximately 210 mustangs were seized from an operation that was represented to be a sanctuary for BLM mustangs and mustangs surrendered by others. In January of this year, there were said to be over 300 mustangs on the ranch, and between January and the middle of March, about 100 were starved. The survivors were emaciated, but due to heroic efforts of Jerry Finch of Habitat for Horses, HSUS, Morril County law enforcement and a dedicated force of volunteers, the survivors are recovering. I said "approximately 210" because there were about that number removed, however there have been several foals born, and many of the surviving mares are in various stages of gestation, having been in the company of stud horses who were allowed to breed without restriction.
If you know anyone who would like to adopt a mustang or three, can provide a sanctuary for some who may be unhandleable (but we're working on that) or know anyone who has the capacity to house several, you may wish to contact JFinch@habitatforhorses.org, or firstname.lastname@example.org, where the adoption application and agreements are being processed. If you would like any additional information, please feel free to contact me directly. My email address is CLMRUNNER@aol.com, and I can send you links to either organization or the stories and HSUS press releases. Please spread the word. This effort is enormous with so many animals in need. Thank you
