“Regrettably, the friends and volunteers of Wild Horse Freedom Federation and Straight from the Horse’s Heart were informed that longtime WH&B advocate Marybeth Devlin passed away last weekend.
As we age, along with the movement/crusade, we lose fellow soldiers along the way…but their parting is not a defeat or surrender. Instead, their passing and the legacy that they left behind spurs us on to further validate their efforts and to set the bar even higher for those who will tread the trail behind us, it is what we do.
May Marybeth rest, peacefully, knowing that her lifelong efforts have made a difference and that the trail she blazed is one that we will continue to follow in earnest. Thank you and may you rest peacefully in God’s hands.” ~ R.T.
This is in tribute to Marybeth Devlin, one of the best researchers working on behalf of our wild horses and burros, who passed away last weekend.
Marybeth was a guest on Wild Horse & Burro Radio along with Craig Downer and Jesica Johnston, https://www.blogtalkradio.com/marti-oakley/2018/06/21/whb-the-plight-of-americas-wild-horses
Marybeth spent endless hours doing research and wrote many articles. Here are links to some of her articles:
I remember that Marybeth also often took the time to call into the Modoc-Washoe Experimental Stewardship Committee meetings (a little known meeting where livestock special interests dictate the fates of wild horses in California and Nevada), to listen and comment on behalf of the wild horses.
Marybeth was very intelligent, and dedicated many hours of her life, and her incredible energy, to help wild horses and burros. And, she was a very sweet person.”
“I am very saddened to learn about our loss of Marybeth. Not only have we lost a friend but the universe has lost a person with a heart of gold. It was my pleasure in the past few years to spend countless hours and days and months working together researching and spreading the truth about our wild horses and burros. Her dedication for our wild ones will be greatly missed but we will continue on … which is what I am sure Marybeth would want. She is and will forever be greatly missed.”
