We know so many of the wild horses at Fish Creek, well. We spent years working with the BLM to create a protocol to actually “fix” management. In 2016, after years (of getting threats, working hard, keeping focused) to build the protocol, we (more than one) WHE volunteer also had to sign a volunteer agreement with BLM. In petty games, big and small, the protocol was destroyed. (you can read more about the Fish Creek captives and the story of the betrayal to the herd, HERE)

A story in pictures
This piece is just a visual narrative of one band. This is not the story of the “people problems.”
We will publish more about individual wild horses and bands now in captivity, that used to live in Fish Creek, in the coming days.
The image above has gotten some attention on social media.
One of our supporters, Elyse Gardner Walsh, noted in her comments that the brand read this wild horse was born in 2018. Some people believe her brand is a mistake. It is not a mistake. Yes, she was born in 2018.
Her band lived in a livestock grazing allotment that has been the subject of extreme controversy and backdoor deals.
