It has been 2 1/2 years since the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) last gave the public a tour of any BLM Long Term Holding Pastures, which are used to warehouse once wild horses that were rounded up by helicopters used by BLM contractors and permanently removed from America’s public lands.  So much for the BLM’s claim of transparency.

BILLINGS – The Bureau of Land Management Billings Field Office is beginning a public comment period on an environmental assessment which analyzes the continued use of fertility control on the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range, the agency said in a press release Tuesday.

The agency is accepting public comment and is requesting any information, data or analysis pertinent to the environmental analysis for 30 days beginning Jan. 20, 2015. The environmental assessment is available for review by visiting the field office website at

Fertility control has been used to control the wild horse population since 2001. The current fertility control program began in 2011 and expires this year. A new proposal, based on the results from existing and previous treatments, is being developed.

“The Billings Field Office is excited to be on the cusp of nearly eliminating the…

Wild Horses vs Government Lies and Welfare Ranchers: This is what American’s Subsidizes with Taxpayer Money

now this should be sent to congress and the senate but i fear ,too, that many of the re-elected persons are much to insensative of the state of this issue. and can’t or won’t see passed the lies and 1/2 truths to admit that they were wrong

Photojournalist - Journalist


“I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
― Thomas Jefferson

Welfare ranchers, ranchers who graze on Public lands, want taxpayers and wild horses off public lands, but they want taxpayer subsidies to continue and even increase, which would provide even more widespread destruction of America’s Public Lands and the continued killing of America’s Icon, the Wild Horse Herds in the United States.

Society is becoming increasingly antagonistic toward private profit-making uses of public resources, especially when those private uses require taxpayer subsidies for operation. Most often what creates a higher use of subsidies (i.e. taxpayer money) are the apparent conflicts with other goals of ecological management. The antagonistic behavior is more than reasonable.

The fact is several things play into the subsidies welfare ranchers receive – and qualify because they…

Premarin Horses: How many does it take to make a billion dollars? Part 2

Tuesday's Horse


So let’s get started. Be warned ahead of time that this estimate is very rudimentary and relies heavily on averages and interpolation of information collected from various sources.

There are three main estrogens (along with other minor estrogen analogues), collectively referred to as CEEs [conjugated equine estrogens], found in Premarin® and its daughter products such as Prempro®, Premphase® and the new osteo-menopausal combination drug Duavee®:

(1) estrone sulfate;
(2) sodium equilin sulfate and;
(3) 17α-dihydroequilenin sulfate.

CEEs are isolated from urine via a solid phase extraction process followed by either HPLC (high-performance liquid chromatography) or TLC (thin layer chromatography) on silica gel – both methods give good results with over 97% recoveries.

Ranges of the concentrations measured during the collection period were given as:

Estrone sulfate: 0.8 – 6.4 mg/L
Sodium equilin sulfate: 0.4 – 3.2 mg/L
17α-dihydroequilenin sulfate: 0.3 – 2.4 mg/L

EWA Pres: “Is the horse slaughter battle over?”

congress had better wake up or our wild horses and burro’s will be gone. with all the stallions being gelded what will become of the herds ?

Open Letter from John Holland ~ President of Equine Welfare Alliance

“We must continue to work toward a federal law to remove equines from the food chain forever…”

Dear EWA member,

President of the Equine Welfare Alliance ~ John Holland President of the Equine Welfare Alliance ~ John Holland

I like to take this opportunity each year to let you know what we think we can expect in the New Year. First, there is no doubt that 2014 was the year of the horse and there is a very real potential for 2015 to mark the end of the slaughter of US horses! The two big developments were, as you know, the inspections defunding and the EU ban on Mexican horse meat derived largely from US horses.

Inspections defunding

Last year at this time, we were facing the threat of up to four horse slaughter houses opening in the US, but I told you that it was not going…

Fish Creek HMA, Public Comments Due January 23

please this will take all of us,and our friends.

Wild Horse Education

Winter 2014, Fish Creek wild horses Winter 2014, Fish Creek wild horses

The Bureau of Land Management has recently released the roundup schedule for winter 2015.

Before a proposed action can occur BLM must generate a “decision” reached through the National Environmental Policy Act or “NEPA.” (For a “crash course” in NEPA go here:

Many of the operations on the schedule will meet their compliance without any need for further public comment like the operation at the Pine Nut HMA (200 wild horses removed, with a 332 target for capture) through a “DNA.” DNA stands for “Determination of NEPA Adequacy,” in BLM terminology that means that plans have been adequately analyzed without the need to generate new analysis.

However the Fish Creek HMA has had a new Environmental Assessment (EA) created to address a ten year strategy. The document was just released and public comment is due by January 23.

“This arrangement will terminate upon your death which will most likely occur right about the time your estate has been bled dry of every penny. If an autopsy was performed at this point with the necessary tox screens, there would no doubt be an unexplainable overload of neuroleptic drugs in what was left of your system. Drugs that your estate, medicare and medicaid will be billed for long after you take your last breath. Only a tox will never be done, in any event.”

bouvry protest October 2013 protest at the Bouvry horse slaughter plant just outside of Fort Macleod, Alberta

Written by: Brian

I’m not sure which horse is haunting me the most. There was Jack. Big part draft gelding, 23 years old. Skinny as skinny, with large white saddle sore scars. Someone used him hard and threw him away.

Ginger was 26, from the same place as Jack. Friendly and gentle. She came to the fence to say hello.

The Percheron filly was a black beauty. After her trip to Alberta she might be one of the chosen ones to be shipped live from the Calgary airport. If she survives the trip (sometimes all the horses arrive dead), she’ll be slaughtered in Japan and served up raw as a high priced delicacy.

Twenty year old Copper won’t be as tender. He had some hard miles on him.

The dunn mare was in her prime…
