“We are going to do something a little different for ‘Feel Good Sunday’, today.
Over the past several weeks many long time advocates have contacted me with intense care and concern regarding the future safety and welfare of our wild equines, including the issue of predatory horse slaughter which also affects our domestic horses and donkeys. Many of these advocates we have known for years and you can hear the tension an desperation in their words, we echo the same emotions.
My pat answer is that we can’t give up, we simply cannot turn our backs and slink back into the mass of lemmings that know not what is going on around them. We have seen the brutality, witnessed the cruelty and heard all of the lies so we are forever changed and committed to do what is right, what is just, and what is in alignment with the circle of life.
We will fight on…and today, for Feel Good Sunday, our longtime friend and fellow advocate, Biologist Robert C. Bauer so eloquently pens our mutual thoughts and shares them with us, this day.
Today we will not publish laughs and frivolity, instead we will speak from the heart and hold each other closely as we tighten our cinches for another week of battle.
Be at peace, my friends, as you do not fight alone…we are an army of thousands on a crusade of compassion and caring. In the end; good shall win over evil.
Feel GOOD this Sunday!” ~ R.T.
“It is always a pleasure to have Robert Bauer contribute, from his heart, to Straight from the Horse’s Heart. Terry and I first met Robert in the Pryor Mountains during the much publicized roundup of Cloud and his herd on Labor Day weekend, 2009. It was a sad and emotional time for all of us, particularly Robert. I remember Terry holding him in her arms while he wept upon the overlooking bluff as the helicopter rudely chased Cloud’s family into the awaiting pens. An image forever burned upon my heart.
Many thanks to Robert and his insightful view of our much beleaguered, last remaining wild equine.” ~ R.T.
Commentary by Robert Bauer “…any devastation of western rangelands, is due rather to an overpopulation of cattle, which have been found to outnumber the wild horses 100 to 1…” As a biologist, I have been involved in documenting the issues concerning this nation’s wild horses for years, along […]

“In a desperate attempt to curb the devastating roundups many advocates are succumbing to the pressure of the BLM to utilize the PZP contraceptive on our wild horses.”
Letter to the Editor of the Elko Daily News by Robert Bauer, Biologist “To state that 40,000 to 50,000 wild horses could increase to 69,000 horses in just a one-year period is ludicrous.” Dear Editor: A recent article was published in the Elko Daily Free Press entitled “Commentary: […]
