PLEASE SHARE THIS LINK ON YOUR FACEBOOK PAGES! The older wild horses are the most vulnerable to end up in the slaughter pipeline. We need to find adopters.
Listen to the ARCHIVED SHOW Here!
This is a 1 hour show, recorded Nov. 19, 2014.
Tonight’s guests are Carol Walker, Dir. of Field Documentation for Wild Horse Freedom Federation and Ginger Kathrens, the Founder and Executive Director of The Cloud Foundation.
Both fought to keep wild horses on federally protected Herd Management Areas in Wyoming, and both witnessed the roundups of these wild horses. And both are among those posting photos of the wild horses that were captured in Wyoming, so that these horses can be adopted rather than end up going to slaughter in the future.
You can read Carol Walker’s article HERE, but some excerpts are below:
Beautiful young mares 1-4 years old in pen 21
I have broken the photos down into age groups.
First are the foals and weanlings in this link:
Images 1-5 in pen 13A, images 6-57 are in the two adjoining weanling pens, 36C and 36D, images 146-149 are in pen 23.
Then the young mares, ages 1-4 in this link:
Images 59-93 are in pen 21, images 94-100 are in pen “No Man’s Land”, images 101-125 are in pen 22 and images 126-145 are in pen 25.
Then the young stallions, (soon to be gelded) ages 1-4 in this link:
Images 150-155 are in pen 8B, images 156-225 are in pens 3 and F, images 226-246 are in pen G.
The older mares, ages 5 and up are here:
Images 339-387 are in pen 26, images 388-441 are in pen 18. You may notice hip brands on some of these mares – this is because they were treated with birth control, PZP either in December of 2013 and/or October of 2010.
The older stallions, 5 and up:
Images 247-313 and 327-338 are in pens 19b and 19C, images 314-327 are in pen 9.

PLEASE NOTE, MARES COULD BE PREGNANT, SO YOU COULD BE GETTING 2 FOR THE PRICE OF 1, BUT BE AWARE WHEN FACTORING IN THE PRICE OF HAY AND CARE, TO MAKE SURE YOU CAN AFFORD 2 HORSES.
Two stunning weanlings, a dun 9135 and a grulla 9133 in pen 36C
You can use the neck tag numbers on the horses for identification purposes.
Some notes about the horses – the 9000 numbers are from Great Divide Basin, the 7000 numbers are from Salt Wells Creek and Adobe Town. They do not list any horses as being from Adobe Town, but there are Adobe Town horses mixed in with the Salt Wells Creek horses.
These are NOT all the horses brought in during the Checkerboard Roundup. The other 600+ are at Rock Springs Corrals. They are not ready for adoption there yet. There are also about 100 weanlings and yearlings and two year olds from Salt Wells Creek that went to Axtell, Utah’s wild burro facility.
IF YOU CAN ADOPT A HORSE:
You can call to adopt at anytime with an approved adoption application). To find out more about individual horses or to download adoption forms can be found at these links:
Through the Canon City BLM office, the first 150 miles of shipping is FREE! (If 5 people in the same area adopt, that means 750 miles are free, so buddy up!) There are group shipping options as well for folks that are interested in the horses, but live a distance away. Please contact the BLM office directly for specifics.
