Dear Our Fabulous Wild Horse Supporters,
We are SO excited to FINALLY announce the best news we have had to share with you in over 2 1/2 years!
OUR MUSTANGS ARE GETTING THEIR SANCTUARY AND HAVE THE BLM’S SUPPORT!!!
Over the past three days, I have been to meetings in Sacramento and again in Washington, DC. I’ve met with BLM Director, Bob Abbey, Deputy Director, Mike Pool, along with the Wild Horse and Burro team. The BLM has officially agreed to support going forward with the development of the wild horse Eco- sanctuary for the horses in holding! Also in DC, I met with Congressman, Jim Moran, who had already given his blessing, but is submitting legislation to members of Congress on behalf of these wild mustangs. We are so thankful to him and his staff for their efforts on the wild horse and burro issue. All the meetings were fabulous and we could not be happier about the news!
This final acceptance by the BLM this week was the hurdle we had yet to get over. We are so thankful for the opportunity to start our Pilot Program with 1,000 horses, and we aim to get all 36,000+ horses in holding soon after. This action by the BLM shows great leadership on the part of Bob Abbey and Mike Pool for taking a stand for our beautiful mustangs and accepting the solution we have offered. Saving America’s Mustangs gives our sincerest thanks for the monumental cooperation on the part of the BLM for an alternative to the holding pens.
This is a truly a dream come true and I’m thrilled to share this news with all of you!! Let the rejoicing begin!!

I HAVE BEEN DILIGENTLY EVERY NIGHT PRAYING TO GOD THANKING HIM FOR SAVING ALL OF HIS PRECIOUS HORSES, AND I BELIEVE THROUGH MY FAITH IN GOD AND EVERYONE OUT THERE WHOSE HEARTS HE IS TOUCHING TO DO HIS WORK, GOD HAS COME THROUGH FOR US AND HE WILL CONTINUE TO COME THROUGH FOR US IN PASSING THE BILL TO END HORSE SLAUGHTER ONCE AND FOR ALL. THANK YOU LORD! AND THANK YOU MADELEINE PICKENS FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK AND DETERMINATION!!
*On a less excited note, 175 wild horses are to be sold to killer buyers in Nevada Sat, Sept. 18. Lifesavers Horse Rescue is taking a huge risk in trying to save as many horses as they can tomorrow. If anyone can help, please visit Lifesaver's web site - http://wildhorserescue.org/
