  1. “Dorothea Boothe, of the Phoenix BLM office, said in an emailed statement: “Our planning process is designed to solicit feedback from a broad array of stakeholders…”

    Well now, that phrase pretty much says it all. Doesn’t it. “STAKEHOLDERS”

    Please please share! These are PUBLIC LANDS they’re talking about, folks. This isn’t just about some piddly-assed crusade for the wild equine that are part of our national heritage, or a dislike for big money cattle ranchers. It’s about government mis-appropriation of tax payer money for those lands, and the extremely deleterious impact that it is having on ALL those critters that call the land “home.”

    The rationale being used as justification, that wild equine do more damage to habitat than do millions of grazing cattle, is simply ludicrous. Further, it’s an insult to your intelligence.


  2. The American Mustangs are part of our American heritage and history. As a tax payer and a citizen I appeal to you to find an alternative for our horses. I know the big cattle ranchers would like to have them off of the public land. I have seen pictures of the damage the cattle do to watering holes and streams. The wild horses, for all of the years they have roamed the ranges, have not damaged the environment. Please reconsider rounding up the wild horses.


  3. Thanks Marti for allowing us to have time on your show tonight. I got to listen to most of the hour. Get job everyone!

    Carol be safe!

    Deb great job co-hosting!

    RT great to hear your voice! You and Terry travel safe tomorrow!

    Ginger hope to see you soon atop the Pryors! J/k I’m done for this year…
