GET ON BOARD MADELEINE’S PONY EXPRESS: 20,000 LETTERS BY SEPT. 1

Dear Friends, Supporters, and Future Supporters,

We have heard you voice your complaints about the roundups.

We have listened to you share so many of your personal stories about your own adopted mustangs.

We have all sent thousands of letters via fax, email, and mail to our Government. Even calling phone lines that have since been unplugged, because of the high volume of calls from supporters.

We are doing all of these things daily, but there still has been NO change.

It’s time for the PONY EXPRESS!!!

I will personally hand deliver each and every letter that you write, via the Pony Express (one of our beautiful mustangs), to Washington DC. I am setting a goal of 20,000 individual letters to take with me. Americans, International supporters, animal activists, anyone who would like to tell President Obama, Secretary Salazar, and Bob Abbey that we aren’t going to sit by waiting until these roundups are over is encouraged to write. This is a very important issue to hundreds of thousands of people that have pleaded with our government to stop gathering our wild horses. This way they cannot unplug their phones, make their website impossible to send a comment to, or delete emails. These are GOING to get to Washington. I promise you that!

For the millions of people who are unaware of the roundup process, here it is: The Bureau of Land Management, a branch of the Department of the Interior, has scheduled the removal of America’s wild horses and are attempting to change the grazing rights to be cattle only on the BLM managed land, which leave our wild horses homeless. 100 years ago there were 2 million horses. Now, because of these roundups, there are only 30,000 left. They contract low-flying helicopters to taunt and scare the mustangs, separating them from their families, and eventually coerced into tiny pens. The mustangs are then taken off to holding facilities where they no longer have room to roam anymore. They will be moved to a short-term holding facility for up to three years if not adopted out or sold to a buyer that intends on using the wild horse for slaughter.

This gives us ONE month to get 20,000 letters in hand to bring to our Nation’s Capital. You can find more information about the BLM and the roundups in the News and Events Section on this website. Please click the button below. By clicking that button, you will send your letter to our government, but also a copy directly to our Saving America’s Mustangs office; where we will print them, put them in envelopes, and hand-deliver to Washington. Every letter counts! Please forward this link to all of your contacts so that we can make this Pony Express as huge as HUMANLY possible. (Or HUMANELY possible on behalf of our majestic, wild horses)

Very Sincerely,

Madeleine Pickens

    How can you peeps even live with yourselves knowing that so many lives has been lost and hurt all because of greed and ignorance? No life should be taken as no humans has the right to take away any life. Only God does. Please – Stop the killing and abuse. All life are sacred and precious.

    Do any of the folks we have elected have children? Don’t they understand that there is very little left of the wonder of nature. I know you could say the horses were not native to this land, but there deserve a chance to live and give our children a chance to see what is now part of our history.
