The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
For the past four years, our team has implemented the world’s largest wild horse humane fertility control program on Nevada’s Virginia Range. This groundbreaking initiative has proven that there IS a better way to humanely manage our nation’s wild horses.
Today, we want to share a heartwarming story from the Virginia Range that illustrates the impact of your support for the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC). Meet Baldy – a beautiful pinto mare whose freedom and safety have been safeguarded thanks to AWHC’s pioneering PZP fertility control program.
|HELP PROTECT HORSES LIKE BALDY →
With her colorful coat and spirited nature, Baldy embodies the untamed beauty of America’s iconic wild horses. Since she had her last foal in 2020, Baldy has been thriving – in part, thanks to our fertility control efforts. She is a proud mother of three, contributing to the genetic diversity of her herd, and she shares a close bond with her four-year-old daughter, Laney, who remains with her in the same family band!
Her story is possible thanks to your support for our innovative fertility control program. This program is more than just a humane way to manage wild horse populations; it’s a lifeline for horses like Baldy. Across the West, federally protected horses are facing increased roundups this year as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) nearly tripled the number of wild horses and burros scheduled to be rounded up in Fiscal Year (FY) 2024.
Without our fertility control program, Baldy and her herd would be at risk of being rounded up – and with no federal protections, they could be sold at slaughter auctions. It costs just $30 to fund a single dose of the fertility control vaccine, a small price to preserve a life of freedom and dignity for horses like Baldy. On this 30th of January, can you chip in $30 to help us continue this vital program?
