Wild Horses/Mustangs

Playboy bunnies hop on wild horse issue

The U.S. House recently passed the “Restore Our American Mustangs Act,” which would protect wild horses in 10 western states by providing additional land and protections. But Rep. Doc Hastings, (R-Wash.) isn’t a huge fan.

“With all of the issues that are facing our country,” Hastings told POLITICO, “here we are going to the floor in order to fill time to talk about welfare for wild horses… It just doesn’t seem to make any sense to me.”

But Hastings and others with reservations about the bill have three passionate opponents: former Playboy playmates Shane and Sia Barbi (aka “The Barbi Twins”) and Amy Nelson, daughter of country superstar Willie Nelson. (Willie sits on the Board of Directors of Habitat for Horses)

“I gotta be honest: I’m very pro-snake. I’m an animal activist,” said Shane Barbi. “But these people are snakes in the way that they’re trying to disguise themselves as someone that cares about” animals

. “Sometimes they blurt out, ‘How can you do this in a time of a recession. Well, bottom line: The voters want to help animals no matter how bad times are.”

Nelson thinks Obama will support their issue. “He’s a compassionate and intelligent person,” said Nelson.
