TGRM or "How to Breed the Best Rodeo Stock from Mustangs"

Total Genetic Resource Management;

Walker Bucking Stock Horses / Breeders

Recognize any mustangs here?

Funny how they make NO MENTION the horses bloodlines. Must be killing them that they cant BRAG about the Mustang blood in them! Of course, breeding mustangs for profit is ILLEGAL.

No Bull! Bucking Stock BIG Business

Get a load of the price of these bucking stock bulls....

Cant help but wonder how many of these prize bucking stock bulls are grazing on public lands?

Same holds true for bucking stock horses....they even sell live seamen from them!

Below is a directory of bucking stock dealers and, although most of them are just advertizing the bulls they have for sale,....bucking stock is bucking stock and where they have cows they also have horses. Not sure? Give them a call and ask if they have any bucking stock horses with "Mustang" blood in them;

TRUST that the rodeo-stock breeders are getting the pick of the best wild Mustang stallions coming off of the ranges...

Mystery Solved as to Where All the "Choice" Gathered Mustangs Have Gone

Listen close as long-time Rodeo-Stock Breeder SHarry Vold says "Mustangs" Essential for Breeding Good Bucking Horses!!

Harry Vold has been breeding rodeo stock for over 50 years.

The American Bucking Horse Registry Requires DNA Sample to Register a Horse and I am wondering, what kind of DNA are they looking for? Hum......

DOI / BLM, WH&B Management = Conflict of Interest

I found your post to George Knapp wanting some evidence of Slazar not wanting horses on the range and decided to go looking and found this - Cameron Bryce, a BLM ecologist wrote that "wild horses do not belong in western ecosystems" - in the attached link.

"What is truly motivating BLM’s massive roundup strategy? It would seem to be a deadly combination of their belief that wild horses do not belong on the range and that the land should be used for extractive purposes: livestock grazing, oil and gas development, uranium mining, siphoning off of water etc. Cameron Bryce, a BLM ecologist, wrote that “wild horses do not belong in western ecosystems,”

Continuing onward I saw on
a reference to an Environmental Assessment where I think the quote initialy arose -

Overview of Current Situation and TCF
The Cloud Foundation - dedicated to the preservation of wild horses on our public lands, and the protection of Cloud's herd in the Arrowhead Mountains of Montana.

Eye On Nevadas "Feral Horse" Commission

If you are interested in receiving notices regarding meetings and other public information of the Nevada Department of Wildlife's - Feral Horse Committee

Please contact this very cordial and professional person:

Suzanne Scoreby (Employee at the Valley Road, Reno NDOW office who handles mailing lists, not specifically related to the Feral Horse Committee)

You will give her your name and email address to put on the mailing list.

FYI: A reminder of the Feral Horse Committee's Agenda: they drafted a letter to be sent to the State Water Engineer asking for the removal of all wild horses on federal lands in Nevada. This was tabled due to improper proceedure regarding the letter's introduction. It will be reintroduced at a meeting of the Feral Horse Committee.

Many thanks,

If I Were a "Mother Org."......

1. I would be proposing to our legislators that we compile and submit a bill to Congress declaring our American Equines to be a National Treasure, and protecting them ALL from slaughter.

2. I would be encouraging all members to go about and protest holding THE INDUSTRY responsible for its overbreeding and of being ok with sending their horses to slaughter.

3. I would be working on a lawsuit charging the BLM with statutory nullification and acting in excess of their legal authority, and (in California Surrogates Court, for breech of the Leo Heil Trust.)

4. I would also include in this lawsuit a claim that the BLM is in violation of Humane Laws for allowing the captured wild equines to stand in long term holding pens without any shelter from the sun and/or inclimate weather.

5. I would be encouraging all members to meet the pro-slaughters on every and any front to counter their pro-slaughter propaganda.

6. I would be encouraging all members to engage in a boycott "of all things" pro-slaughter (this inculdes the meat and cattle industry) to "hit them where it hurts."

7. I would suggest that our supporters quit asking politely and start DEMANDING an end to horse slaughter....

This is only a partial list, but I tell you one thing for sure, if I were a "Mother Org" I would NOT allow our supporters to put all their faith in the politicians to get what we want done....

"Those who profess to favor freedom, yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."

Wild Horses to Slaughter

An old report but nothing much has changed;

Taking a STAND for the horses in Las Vegas

by Brogan Horton on Saturday, December 4, 2010 at 10:35am

As many of you have heard, January 3rd-6th will be a sad day for horses. There is a conference in Las Vegas at the South Point Casino called, “The Summit of the Horse Conference”. This conference is a meeting of the biggest pro-slaughter heads in the country. The event organizer is Sue Wallis, the very same Sue Wallis who thinks that horses, domestic and wild alike, should be slaughtered and be fed to our children in schools and colleges. They are going to discuss, "How to deal with UNWANTED feral horses", "How to restore slaughter in the USA" and " How to deal with unwanted and abandoned horses".... a few guest speakers include:

-The BLM's Chief Bob Abbey
-Dave Catoor- Sue Wallis- Wyoming
-Ike Sankey – Joliet, Montana
-Sankey Pro Rodeo – PRCA stock contractor
-Larry Johnson, Nevada Sportsmen for Fish & Wildlife and former member of BLM Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Committee
-Arlen Washines, Yakama Nations
-Frank Bowman, Illinois Horse Council
-Katherine Minthorn Good Luck, Umatilla, Inter tribal AgricultureCouncil & Northwest Tribal Horse Coalition
-Jason Smith, Warm Springs Tribe
-Tim Amlaw, American Humane
-Temple Grandin & Mark Deesing from Grandin Livestock Systems
-Joey Astling, USDA/APHIS Slaughter Horse Regulation
-Jennifer Woods – Humane Handling and Assessment Tool Project
-Bill DesBarres, Horse Welfare Alliance of Canada
-Chris Gould, Canada, World Breeding Federation of Sport Horses
-Manuel Sada, Criadores de Caballos Deportivos Mexicanos AC, Mexico

It’s basically a giant conference of horse killers.... the BLM (our government, who is paid with OUR tax dollars) is now saying slaughter is a the only reasonable means of disposal for the "Mass"abundance of wild horses.

We have an incredible opportunity to make a HUGE difference in Las Vegas!

SHARK has SO generously donated the use of their "TIGER truck", a truck with 4 HUGE TV screen's surrounding it playing looped video. We will drive around downtown Las Vegas, showing the general public images of what they are REALLY talking about inside the summit meeting. Driving back and forth in front of the Casino, in front of the pro-slaughter people walking in and out... Imagine the impact, and attention this would bring to our cause! To be able to EXPOSE the truth to the general public, RIGHT in Sue Wallis' face!!! The look on her face will be priceless, and worth EVERY PENNY!

We are in need of funding to RUN the truck! It needs to be driven from Chicago to Vegas for the Event

- The truck runs on diesel- The screens run on a gasoline generator

We need your help to make this happen!! This is our CHANCE to stand up for the horses in the faces of those who oppose us!

Please donate the following to help:

We need: Frequent flyer miles to get our volunteers to and from the event- Gas cards to run the truck and get it from A- B

Any donation can be made to:

(please include a mailing address for your tax write-off receipt)

Mail Check or Money Order to: (Gas cards can be mailed to the same address)
Animal Rescue Unit P.O Box 50 North Bridgton Maine 04057

We need to stand together, to be the voice for the horses, for their future!

Calico "Unlimited Sale" Mares to be Reunited with Their Stallions

Good News, yes of course, that these 95 ex-wild horses were rescued from the BLM, but not exactly a "Return to Freedom," and what of the other 1,827 still standing in holding pens throughout the midwest?

Here is a puzzle I am hoping someone of the wild horse and burro experts might help me to solve....

In this article RTF says that 1,922 horses were gathered from the Calico Complex last year...however, in the documents provided to me thru my FOIA request, the figure was much lower at 640 or something like that. Can anyone explain the discrepencies? If so, I wish you would. I am working on an ans right now to the DOJ about the FOIL Request, so it would really help me to know. What are the correct figures and why dont they jive?


A Short History of the Sagebrush Rebellion and Nevadas Assault on Wild Horses (and Burros)

Prior to the federal partisan-R take over by Sagebrush rebellion/post passage of the 1971 Act, the budget was about 12 millions dollars for the BLM WH program. These ranchers (sagebrush rebels headed by NV State Senator Dean Rhoads, a BLM permittee, and his rural buddies) tried to squeeze that out as well, hoping that they would be able to take over the management (attack and destroy) of America's wild horses-burros as the State (rural counties, etc) could manage their perceived problems much more efficiently, etc. (Yeah...slaughter). Once cowboy Bush took over, the budget gradually increased for massive irresponsible illegal roundups (on-going). Former NV U.S. congressman Jim Gibbons-R sponsored a committee hearing (invitation only-Dean Rhoads-R, NV John Ensign-R, Tony Lesperance-R, etc.) on 7-13-1998 in Reno for the purpose of repealing/gutting the 1971 WHB Act. Subsequently NV Governor Jim Gibbons (soon to be EX) who was NV U.S. Congressman at one time introduced into the 106th Congress his special interest bill H.R. 2874 to amend the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act to provide for delegation to STATES (i.e. NDA, public lands ranchers/commissioners, etc) of the powers and duties under that Act regarding management of wild free-roaming horses and burros, and for OTHER PURPOSES (?) into the House of Representatives on 9-15-1999. Gibbons' co-conspirator was Hansen of Utah. Then NV State Senator Dina Titus-D went to D.C. and testified against it! Gibbons treated her rudely (his MO toward women). The Bill failed. BUT THEN Nevada wrote their own Wild Horse-Burros Management Plan (Cathy Barcomb was part of this) that was contrary (illegal) to federal law but became the law of the Nevada land to manage WHBs. Then the sagebrush rebels introduced NV S.B. 486 as an amendment to NRS 561.045 to change the NRS language from wild horses to FERAL LIVESTOCK in 2003 (5-5-2003). I testified against this bill to no avail. A done political deal. THUS between the NDA, BLM and the Nevada ranchers, it gave these rogue authorities to illegal power to treat America's wild horses-burros as FERAL LIVESTOCK or even "estrays" and off to auction/slaughter they go!!!! December 2004 Harry Reid/Conrad Burns "rider" that gutted the 1971 Federal Act, etc.

Over the years, this scam and plot against America's wild horses-burros and take over of OUR public lands as their private lands (and now water) has been well orchestrated and carried out by these corporate greedy thugs...what has and is happening to America's wild horses-burros is ditto as to what is happening to our country now by this same greedy and selfish faction. It’s an ugly and evil story that our WHB have endured. And Obama is doing nothing to help.

How the Grinch (Salazar) Stole Equus

A HollandTech Production;

Nevadas Newly Formed "Feral Horse Commission" Seeks to Take Wild Horse & Burros Water Rights Away


By its own laws, BLM has a DUTY to SUE for Water Rights on Public Lands / Excerpt from Jubic v. BLM,..2008. Dismissed for lack of standing. Merit of issues not addressed;

BLMs Claim of Insufficient Water

61. Water sources in arid regions are always “limited.” However, the Ely / Lincoln County Districts of Nevada have the largest water supply in the whole of the state with numerous streams, wells, rivers and creeks. Furthermore, there are plans for a great expansion for increased water sources for the entire state of Nevada as is part of the development plans for this area . (See "Ely District Development Plans, ROD Ex.C). See also Notice of Availability of the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Lincoln County Land Act Groundwater Development and Utility Right-of-Way Project, Nevada

62. Also as a result of the development plans, wildlife areas are being expanded with plans to put water "guzzers" in place so that the wild deer and elk will have water. Plaintiff submits that the defendants have a duty to provide for or allow access to same for our Nation’s wild horse herds. Plaintiff argues that the problem is not a lack of water sources but a lack of water rights. Nevada is a state that claims rights to all the waters and water sources within the state and, in fact, has been involved with much litigation with the BLM on this matter. A great part of the water problems on federal lands is owing to the fact that more grazing permits than ever are being retired. When that happens, the ranchers, who claim the water rights based upon state law “custom and usage,” shut off their "guzzlers" and other water supplies to the lands as they are no longer needed for their cows. As a consequence, the wild horses are forced to travel further in search of water, sometimes crossing invisible jurisdictional lines and getting themselves into trouble and danger of being shot by the ranchers as “strays.”.

63. There is no doubt that acquiring access to Nevadas waters is a legal, not a geographic problem or based on insufficiencies. Plaintiff submits that despite the difficulties and legalities involved in achieving water rights in Nevada, the BLM nevertheless has a duty to see to it that adequate water is available for the wild horses that roam within their various HMAs. Plaintiff further submits that the defendants have failed in that duty;

"It is BLM policy to conform with applicable state laws and administrative claims procedures for water rights when managing and administering all BLM programs and projects, except as otherwise specifically mandated by Congress. The State Engineer Office in the Division of Water Resources of the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, administers water rights programs in Nevada based on beneficial use and the Doctrine of Prior Appropriation. The State of Nevada regulates its water rights programs using guidance in chapters 533 and 534 of the Nevada Revised Statutes. The BLM will acquire and perfect water rights necessary for public land management purposes according to these state laws and procedures. (Emphasis added.) The BLM also will protect existing water rights of the U.S. by protesting or providing comment during the state permitting process on applications for new water rights or for changes to existing water rights that may interfere with BLM’s ability to utilize such water for public land management purposes."

BLM needs to sue Nevada for water-rights on our public lands. If they do not, they are leaving themsleves open to a lawsuit from one of us for dereliction of their duty to so provide.

New Public Lands Act in the Making?

Weigh In to Encourage Your Senators to Reject Omnibus Approach

It is time to have your voice heard again as 10 Democratic Senators sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) urging him to move a new public lands omnibus bill during the current “lame duck” session of Congress. The legislation would limit access to more than two million acres of public lands in 13 states, while creating new national parks, monuments and wilderness areas and may include other provisions.

As you will recall Congress used procedural gimmicks to enact a similar omnibus bill in 2009, and we must make it clear to Congress that passing massive omnibus bills at the 11th hour is no way to manage our public lands.
Please click the Take Action link below to let your Senators know you oppose a new massive omnibus public lands law and that a repeat of the 2009 law will mean more restrictions to access.
