A couple weeks ago the BLM announced that the budget cannot afford to feed all the horses that are currently in holding facilities here in the west. 30,000 mustangs are running free on the ranges, while another 30,000 are in long term holding facilities. Those in holding are literally eating up the budget.
With so many horses in holding there isn’t enough money to continue with gathers of the mustangs breeding out in the wild.
Why do they need to gather? The rangelands only support so many horses, and with an increase in herd size and little in the way of predators, the horses soon overgraze the land and are left victims of starvation.
You, however, can help make the difference in the lives of two wild horses. This weekend I’ll be driving down to Molalla, OR where I’ll pick up two mustangs and transport them back up here where I’ll be giving gentling demonstrations, then adopting them out at our fair in August. But I need your help! Fuel is costly, and my budget, much like the BLM’s, has been greatly diminished with all the hauling I’ve done this year. If you’d like to help make a difference, please consider purchasing a Soapy Six Pack!
Soapy Six Packs are six bars of handmade soap, created here at my home with my own two little hands 🙂 Bars normally sell for $6 each, but now can be purchased for just $20 plus $9.80 shipping (flat rate priority) if ordered by Weds, July 9. That’s right…you’ve got just two days. I’ll even toss in a Cowboy Kisses lip balm, featuring my favorite Forgetful Cowboy on the label!
The goal? 20 six packs in the next two days.
You could be helping someone find their new best friend…
