Oklahoma, Kansas, Under Extreme Blizard Warnings

Will the Wild Horses (and Burros) in the long term holding facilities be safe? Can they get to shelter from storm?

Do you see any REAL shelter here, in this vid of the midwest facilities? Remember, these horses are in captivity and can only travel so far. What kind of real shelter are they providing for EXTREME Blizzard conditions? - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnU4g6WKbFo

Lets call Oklahoma BLM to ask; http://www.blm.gov/nm/st/en/fo/Oklahoma_Field_Office.html

Better yet, one BLM office covers all three midwestern states. Call them to ask about the wild horses in holding facilites in OK sand KS,....asking are they provided shelter from these blizzard storms? - http://www.blm.gov/nm/st/en.html

If the horses had natural habitat and freedom they could seek shelter, but if man does not provide them with shelter and they are fenced in, they could perish in the blizzard. What is being done about this?

I was wondering about shelter for the wild horses in holding also. I had to have a run in shed to suit BLM's requirements--
Here is something interesting--The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond was on NBC Today show cooking today. Seems her husband has a contract with BLM to keep Long Term Horses at his ranch in Oklahoma. They receive over 1M in our tax dollars per year. In the following link they separated out foals and sent them to "who knows where". No BLM brands on these guys--want to guess where they ended up?
