Stampeded by helicopters, slammed into metal pens, torn from families when their hearts and heads say safety is with the herd, our wild horses have been robbed of their homelands and forced to stand dull-eyed in pens, awaiting the slaughter that the Bureau of Land Management says will come.
It's going on today. Tomorrow. The next day.
And it's done in my name and yours as if it's the will of the American people, despite the cost, the lack of a clearly stated plan and our continued protests that this is NOT what we want.
That's why my name is on a letter to President Obama and Congress.
You can see the entire list of horse advocates and agencies which have signed on.

Our most immediate request is that ALL ROUND-UPS MUST STOP until accurate numbers of horses and livestock are available and range conditions are evaluated by independent observers.
Want to help me help the horses?
Here's how:
1. Write a letter (feel free to use anything I've written to support your opinion). Speak your mind; no one can do that for you.
2. Include your first name, age, and where you live (city, state, country)
3.Mail your letters to Terri Farley, 565 California Avenue, Reno, Nevada 89509
4.I will stand up at the BLM meeting on Dec. 7, make a quick statement, then start reading the names, ages, and city/state/countries of those speaking for mustang freedom.
5. I will be allowed 3-5 minutes speaking time & my goal is to read your names until they cut me off.

Let's give the horses something to be thankful for,
Terri

Wouldn't it be great if Sheryl came to the hearing and spoke her mind?

RENO, Nev. - Sheryl Crow is joining the call for a halt to U.S. government roundups of wild horses in the West, branding them as inhumane and unnecessary.

The Grammy Award-winning singer is asking President Barack Obama and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to scrap a proposed roundup of 2,500 mustangs in northern Nevada.

Crow, who campaigned for Obama last year and performed at his inauguration, opposes Salazar's plan to move thousands of wild horses to preserves in the Midwest and East to protect horse herds and the rangelands that support them.

U.S. Bureau of Land Management officials say they plan to remove 11,500 wild horses and burros from the range over each of the next three years because booming numbers of the animals are damaging the range.
