Gosh this is just awful!!! I don't know what else to say about it. I have left feedback for the BLM and plan to call someone this weekend or Monday and see if there is anything that I can do to help. I also left a blog on my site to help spread the word.

I'm hoping to get some holding facilities set up in MN/ND/and SD to help spread the mustangs out a little bit. Right now none of those 3 states have any type of mustang programs that I am aware of.

Do you know who organizes the mustang days that you go to in WA? I would like to do something like that in these areas also to help promote the mustangs. I think it would help more to get adopted.

When I went to the auction where I got Sundance in 2006 it was the first time I had ever been introduced to the mustang and up until that point I didn't even know you could adopt a mustang. I think there are a lot of people out there like that or they have misconceptions about the mustang breed. It would be nice to have a program set up to help promote them and re-educate people.
