Feature Photo“The UHC has helped us with five mini stallions, which is amazing! Sadly, many of the minis that enter the action pipeline are studs, I guess because owners don’t want to spend the money, and the little ones are easy, even as stallions.”
Program Highlight

Somehow, through the flames, smoke, chaos and tears, an army of heroes emerged in California. Some were burned, some bruised, but all were relentless in aiding the struggling people and horses of the San Luis Rey Downs Fire.

Success Story

It was just another ordinary Tuesday in 2001 for Janet Rowe, owner of Saving Grace Equine Rescue in Bracebridge, Ontario. She was making one of her frequent trips to the Ontario Livestock Exchange in St. Jacobs, Ontario, to look for another horse in need to rescue, rehab and re-home.

“Lovely and Peaceful” Killing – Help Us Stop This


The following post comes from the American Wild Horse Preservation.

They want to kill over 80,000 wild horses & help sterilize the rest. Help us stop them.

At a rigged oversight hearing on Capitol Hill last week, Rep. Cynthia Loomis (R-WY) called for the “lovely and peaceful” killing of all the wild horses and burros in Bureau of Land Management (BLM) holding pens because their “wild lives are over.” Nevada rancher JJ Goicoechea called for mass roundups and sterilization.

We must stop this.

The agenda of public lands ranchers and the politicians who serve their interests is clear:

►  Round up 100% of America’s wild herds and remove the 40,000 wild horses and burros that the BLM considers to be “excess.” BLM Roundup

►  Slaughter the 40,000 “excess” wild horses and burros and the 44,000 already warehoused in BLM holding facilities.

BLM Holding Facility►  Sterilize every one of the 27,000 wild horses left on the range via risky and invasive surgical procedures.

BLM Sterilization

It’s a recipe for unprecedented brutality and extinction of these national icons in our lifetime. 

We will not let this happen, but we need your help to stop it.

The livestock industry agenda for our national symbols of freedom is nothing short of un-American and we can stop it…with your help.

Please donate as generously as you can to support our legislative, legal and grassroots efforts to save America’s majestic mustangs and burros. We can do this, because we have the power of the people on our side!

ACTION ALERT: Stand Against Illegal BLM Checkerboard Roundup


The following update is from the American Wild Horse Preservation Organization 

unnamedThe Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is accepting public comments on an Environmental Assessment (EA) issued to correct legal violations in the way it conducted the massive 2014 Wyoming Checkerboard roundup, which permanently removed 1,263 federally-protected wild horses from the range. By using a request from ranchers to remove wild horses from private lands as an excuse to eradicate horses from public lands, the BLM has set a dangerous precedent that puts wild horses at the mercy of private landowners who want them gone. We continue to fight this legal travesty in the courts, and we must take a strong stand as well during this public comment period. Please take action for wild horses.


URGENT ACTION ALERT: Massive Oregon Mustang Roundup


The following action alert is from the American Wild Horse Preservation 

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is planning a mega roundup of wild horses in the Beatys Butte Herd Management Area (HMA) in southern Oregon later this month. The roundup will shatter the lives of 1,500 wild horses and cost American taxpayers as much as $76 million for the helicopter stampede and lifetime warehousing of captured mustangs in government holding facilities!

This massive roundup is being conducted to appease ranchers in the Beatys Butte Grazing Association, who graze their livestock on our public lands at taxpayer-subsidized rates. This small group of ranchers has been pressuring the BLM to remove horses so they can graze more cattle in the same public lands area.

Please take a stand today! Your signatures will be hand delivered later this month to the Oregon BLM at a joint meeting of the agency’s citizen advisory boards that oversee most of the wild horse areas in the state.

BLM Summer 2015 Roundup


The following update is from American Wild Horse Preservation.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Summer 2015 roundup season is underway. Newly captured wild horses and burros will be added to the nearly 50,000 currently stockpiled in holding facilities. Of note is the BLM removal numbers are significantly lower than those of previous years, which is largely the result of BLM’s inability to remove larger numbers of horses due to lack of holding space. This situation creates an opportunity, and should make it necessary, for the BLM to increase the use of humane fertility control as an alternative to removing massive numbers of wild horses and burros from the range. However, the agency continues to fight against making progress towards creating a humane and sustainable on-the-range management program.
