1 Million Caring Souls Reach out to the Horses
HOUSTON (SFTHH) – The Equine Welfare blog, Straight from the Horses Heart hit the milestone of 1 million unique views this day, August 16th, 2011. Originally intended to be a promotional platform for the heart rending book by the same name the blog soon became an internet megaphone for wild horse and horse slaughter related issues. Book author and publisher of the site R.T. Fitch says that he wouldn’t have it any other way:
“Shocked, pleased and happy for the horses pretty much sums up how my wife Terry and I feel right now.” said Fitch, “Our book is all about increasing awareness of the plight of both domestic and wild horses in the United States and for this blog to take a sharp right turn and head into the fertile fields of equine advocacy speaks highly of material that we write upon and also the compassion, drive and tenacity of the individuals that read and comment upon the blog.”
Just a little over 2 years old SFTHH addresses issues centering around the inhumanity of the predatory business of horse slaughter while propelling the Fitch’s into center ring over the controversial mismanagement of public owned wild horses and burros on their rightful land.
“SFTHH has become a premier, public think tank where advocates bounce ideas off from one another to the point that we have actually acted upon those concepts and initiated legal actions in an attempt to halt the decimation of our wild horse herds by the Obama administration‘s renegade Bureau of Land Management (BLM)”, said Fitch.
Fitch is the Co-Founder and President of the Wild Horse Freedom Federation, a Texas non-profit corporation, with 501(c)3 pending, that was a product of the dialogue discussed on SFTHH and is actively engaged in landmark litigation against the alleged unlawful actions of the BLM.
“The readership of SFTHH have helped more horses than they will ever know and in so doing, they have helped each other”, Fitch mused, “I am proud and pleased to call each and every one of them a most sincere and special friend.”
