  2. Wait! You didn’t have armed men keeping you away from the horses? The horses had enough to eat? They didn’t have water, right? Dang, we need to get the BLM in there to help those poor horses. This is terrible. Salazar knows best how to handle these situations.

    Thank you and God bless you and all the horses!

  7. What a great adventure – seeing all those horses and the people who live with them! Watched a show on tv about Mongolia – should be really interesting to see pictures & hear the story.
    So glad everything is ok with RT & Terry – did worry when I didnt get any emails for a whole week.

    • Just to add an opinion about the tribal consumption of horses; There are many reasons; from the harsh climate and the extremes people must live with to the cultural interplay of people and horses which creates a mysticism from a symbiotic relationship. Our native tribes did this also. To consume a friend may be considered an honor. I will fall on my face here; didn’t Socrates ask to be eaten by his friends?

      • Good points, Mar.

        What is done to the tribal equines of Mongolia is far, far different from the wild and domestic equine holocaust perpetrated by so-called civilized US, Mexican, Canadian, Belgian, Italian, French, et al humans.

        I venture to guess they are not exposed to the drugs, overbreeding, neglect, cruel transport and inhumane slaughtering like our “civilized” equines face….nor do they lie to the consumers, including themselves like the big Ag lying machine we face.

  9. Unable to play the audio.From what I have read in the comments, you and Terry are on a journey. Good Luck!! Am wondering why no mention of the DeSatoya Mountains Herd. The BLM intends to remove around 400 horses!!!! The statement, also stated, that only 3 private citizens showed up at the hearing.. The site visit was conducted on May 31st….

    • sorry the article was misleading on facebook. It is actually from January 2012, but Don’t let this happen again. Please write to your Senator to vote to stop the slaughterhouses in America.

  14. What a great report from Mongolia in the midst of those fabulous Takhi or Mongolian horses and horsepeople! Yes, indeed, this is an example of what can happen if the subverted wild horse and burro program in our nation continues to get its way, e.g. path to die out in the wild where the “true vigor of the species is preserved.” Anxiously await your pictures and further report, Terry and RT.

  16. 3900 commented. I think a 4 wheel drive vehicle was required in order to participate in the tour of the area. It is often hard for people to get to these remote areas, or to travel anywhere. That is why we MUST have people with integrity to protect our Public Lands and Wildlife.

  17. Mar Wargo, Glad you brought up that subject. When an animal eats another animal in a more natural setting of survival and the eco system, there is nothing wrong with it. When you enslave and hold captive and mistreat an animal for ‘luxury’ of high dollar profit in fancy restaraunts – it loses it’s spiritualtiy. There is nothing wrong with horses being eaten by any animal (including humans) in a natural ecosystem – there is much wrong with the drugs we put into cows, horses sheep etc and the disrespect we show them when we do slaughter them _not for survivial, but for fancy meals. I don’t think horses should be on the top of the menu, but there are times they can be on the ecosystem menu. Yes, the American Indians gave much respect to each animal that they killed and used to survive. The Native Americans had much to do with the demise of the horse here on this contitnent, it is believed, by over hunting them for FOOD. Am I making myself clear? Probably not. ChuChullaine O’Reilly talks about several Mongolian tribes feeding their horses meat and blood in his book “Deadly Equines”. RT, I’m curious what you’ve seen of horse culture while there. I’ve read a few things about the Mongolians and see a few shows and movies (Check out “The Horse Boy” movie) and their relationship with horses is very, very interesting. Do you think Yuri Kavinsky has any bases on his theory that the American Indians learned their horsemanship from the Mongolians instead of the Spanish/Europeans? It sounds like a great conversation over some ice tea and beer this fall when we get back to Texas (mid-September). Until then, we’re sitting up in the mountains watching the horses watch the eagles fly by.

  18. This is one of the best quotes I have ever read and I don’t remember where I saw it or who said it, but THIS is why we fight so hard to protect these Animals.
    “Horses bound for slaughter are treated as though they are already dead while they are still very much alive”.
