Global Advocacy Team Effort Proves “Working Together” Saves Equine Lives
“It’s a restless ‘Feel Good Sunday’ with much going on but we can all take a deep breath in knowing that this past week 30 Virginia Range wild horses, stripped from their rightful homes, were saved at a public auction by a combined effort of dozens of organizations and multitudes of individuals from around the world. Likewise, the week prior, 23 other VR horses were saved at the same auction place while kill buyers and an auction employee bid up the prices to wound and injure the pocketbooks of concerned advocates. None the less, ALL have been saved from the knife to the withers in Mexico. This is a clear cut case of advocates actually making a tangible and successful difference. I not only tip my hat to all involved but do so on a bended knee. May God bless you all.” ~ R.T.
Hopefully we’ll have a bunch of good stuff with images posted by Saturday.
So here’s the quick and dirty summary.
Hidden Valley recovered all 30 horses. LRTC handled logistics. There were more horses than LRTC could handle so HorsePower and a couple of volunteers from the Douglas County Mounted Posse provided some much needed assistance with transport so we were able to get the horses over to the Camelot Arena in Stagecoach for the night.
Thanks to everyone on the scene and behind the scenes. This clearly was a team effort.
