It’s summer time, and there are tons of adventures to be had for two mini donkeys on a bustling ranch like Lucky Three. Today, Spuds and Augie explore the hay field with Meredith and test their bravery against a fearsome, loud machine.
She’s kinda silly, Augie. Who ever heard of saying “how do you do” to a swather, Augie?
We need YOUR help in asking the new Interior Secretary, Sally Jewell, to protect wild horses.
As a conservationist and outdoor enthusiast, she brings to the Interior Department a different mindset than her predecessor Ken Salazar, a rancher whose pro-livestock policies were devastating to wild horses.
However, Jewell appears to know little about wild horses and burros. During her confirmation process, she answered just one question on the issue, posed in writing by Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), chair of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. In her response, she pledged to work together with Senator Wyden to “pursue effective and ecologically sustainable policies” for the Bureau of Land Management’s wild horse and burro program.
Now is our chance to bring this issue to Jewell’s attention and hold her to her promise to work together toward reform.
We’re collecting signatures on an open letter that will be delivered to Sally Jewell in her first days as Interior Secretary. The goal to demonstrate that tens of thousands of Americans are fed up with the direction of the program and the toll it’s taking on wild horses, burros and American taxpayers.
