The reality of the American wild horse often gets lost in a world run by cherry picking convenient soundbites that forward agenda. A world that values profit lines and media headlines over integrity, intelligence and truth is creating a really lousy reality for both humans and wild horses.
At Wild Horse Education (WHE) our job is to bring those uncomfortable truths and contractions into the open. We must demonstrate that without the context of our wild horses and public lands you can make “words on a page” formulate the reality of your choosing; “No horse removed” or “we have a serious over population problem.”
Each agenda contains threads of truth presented to solidify an institution. Neither agenda is, in actuality, creating a better reality the wild horse lives each day. Solidifying politics is simply making the reality created by politics stronger, not removing the politics that destroy the rangelands and push out wild horses into holding facilities where we debate killing them or sending them to slaughter every year.
We can not “out scream screamers.” We can not “spin our way out of spin.”
We need to get back to the valuing intelligence, integrity and beginning each conversation with simple truths.
Over the last few months we have been working with several media outlets. We had the pleasure of hosting one on the range, short notice, to not only speak those truths but to show them how all of it gets translated into the practices we see today. We got a chance to show how the wild horse, and the land they stand on, pay the price.
A roundup starts long before a helicopter flies. The “ground zero” of the fight to save our wild ones and the land they stand on. A place you barely have a voice in process anymore and very few people exercise that voice that is threatened more and more each and every day.
We will keep you posted on the story…. and now have more paperwork to complete, comments to file, work to do. We will write soon, after we clear this pile on the desk, of serious issue you, as a wild horse advocate, must be made aware of.
For now…. enjoy some of the photos of the trip.
