The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
This is the most important week in our campaign to save the famed wild horses of Onaqui in Utah.
We’ve got a lot going on – and we need your support. Whether it’s on the ground in Utah or from afar, every action you can take this week will make a difference.
- Friday is our rally at the BLM office in Salt Lake City, UT. Please join us as we protest the round-up of 80% of one of the most famous wild horse herds in America, and tell the BLM that their plan of action is unacceptable.
- Our petition to save the Onaqui herd has gathered almost 97,000 signatures, and counting! Help us hit 100k! Please share with your networks, as we need as many signatures as possible!
- Also on Friday, we’ll be holding a Digital Sit-in to #SaveOnaqui. Support the movement by sharing on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the #SaveOnaqui hashtag. More on this later.
- You can help show your support for the Onaqui wild horses by purchasing our Onaqui Apparel, proceeds of which will go directly to saving the Onaqui herd.
A majority of Americans oppose rounding up wild horses and using taxpayer money to put them in holding pens for life. And while the BLM has come after so many of America’s wild herds, the Onaqui wild horses hold a special place in our nation’s hearts.
As one of the most viewed wild horse herds, they not only offer a unique opportunity for people to witness the magic of horses roaming free in the wild, they also contribute to the local community by bringing in thousands of tourists every year.
PS – Keep an eye out for an email this week with more information on our rally and digital sit-in to #SaveOnaqui happening Friday.
The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Kimerlee Curyl is a renowned fine art photographer who has been working amongst the Onaqui wild horses since 2009. She is one of many artists who has come to know the herd very well, in a place that now feels like home.
We can’t let these beautiful horses, who have roamed Utah since the 1800s, lose their families and their homes in a BLM roundup.
Kimerlee explains just how important these horses are:
“My first journey to the area was in 2009. While numerous visits have followed, I will never forget the magic and mystery of that initial trip. The Onaqui horses have called the historic Pony Express Trail in Utah home for generations. To remove them from this territory – one they once helped man traverse in the name of special interest – is a betrayal to our past, especially when access to cost-effective solutions have been offered and declined by the BLM. They are woven into the fabric of this landscape and deserve solutions to be expanded upon. They deserve to be here.”
Photographers like Kimerlee come from all over the world to visit and photograph these wild horses. But in a few short months, 80% of the herd could be gone forever.

IN BETWEEN ORPHAN FOAL RESCUES – ANOTHER 911 CALL, A STARVING GELDING AND A PONY IN THE “SHIP PEN” NEED YOUR HELP TODAY!
The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:
“BANDIT”, shown above, needs your help today!!. Although we are on standby for more babies, I couldn’t ignore this beautiful boy. Seeing the despair in his eyes, and knowing that we can not only change that, but keep him off the slaughter truck sent me running to the computer. (Ok, so I can barely walk, but y’all know what i mean.) In all seriousness though, the clock is ticking…
I had to make an immediate decision, so once again I based it on faith. Faith that my Chilly Pepper Family will step up and make it possible to save not only him, but the 3 year old pony who was also scheduled to ship to slaughter. However, we can’t do it without y’all making it happen. Our budget is tapped out, and at this point, we simply don’t have funds to save these kids
Please help us save them. It is absolutely “baby time”, but every single life matters, and when God puts a certain one in front of us, I have to try and do everything I can to help.
So Please, help me, help him. Can you imagine how horrible just the trip to the slaughter plant would be in his condition? And then what would be waiting for him? It isn’t right, and since he and the little pony are “in front of us”, let’s save their lives too.
The babies are all hanging in there. Most of them have had scours and been sick at some point, and Goldilocks is still really struggling, as some of the others are. I have another vet bill for about $1500+, and between all the babies, there have been lots of vet visits. We are going through milk at a crazy pace, and so appreciate any and all help with these ongoing expenses.
As always, the Chilly Pepper Family Rocks!
