There’s currently a debate running in the American west. Apparently the wild mustang population has grown to an extraordinary number (mid 5 to high 6 digits depending on who you ask). The cattle farmers are trying to re-enact a bill that will kill thousands of these beautiful horses to keep them off of federal land. They say there isn’t enough land for both the horses and the cows. One woman, Madeleine Pickens, is trying to establish a refuge for these horses…to protect them from unnecessary slaughter.
I think it would be very sad…and tragic to kill off thousands of horses that not only showcase beauty but are a direct link to our history.
