On the Radio Today, Before the Nevada State Legislature Tomorrow
Today, Thursday, the Nevada Matters radio program is giving an entire hour to the story on the Virginia Range Wild Horse issue. The hour will be called, “Mustangs Matter.” On air guests will be Carrol Abel, Willis Lamm and John Holland from the Equine Welfare Alliance, a wizard when it comes to horse welfare and the slaughter issue, will be joining us via phone.
“Mustangs Matter” will air on Thursday, January 3rd, from noon (Pacific standard time) until 1:00 PM. It can be heard in the Reno – Fallon area at 101.3 FM. If you’re out of the reception area you can listen to a webcast on your computer or smart phone by going to http://renegaderadio.org and clicking on the “Listen Live” button.
By the way, Eddie Floyd, the main host and producer of Nevada Matters, along with his wife, Shari, decided to not run cattle at their ranch this year and are providing Foster care for a large number of Virginia Range mustangs that the Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund rescued from the livestock sales in Fallon. Our horses clearly have friends in the right places.
They also have enemies. Tune in to find out who and how.
There may be time during the show to take a couple of additional callers. We won’t know until we see how the show flows as we have a great deal to cover. But the call-in number is 775-827-8900. If folks call, we will try to get them on. Please wait to call in until John Holland’s segment is done so we don’t jam him out!
The next day the allies, coordinated by the Wild Horse Preservation League, are holding a “Slaughter is Not the Answer” rally in front of the Nevada State Legislature building in Carson City, NV. Everyone who is concerned about our horses going to slaughter should be there. Bring your own sign, bring an American or Nevada flag, or use signs provided by the League. The Capitol Police are always good to us, so this needs to be a civil and well behaved rally!
When: Friday, January 4th, 10:30 AM (assemble and organize) until 1:00 PM The actual rally starts at 11.
Where: In front of the Nevada State Legislature building 401 South Carson Street, Carson City, NV.
