The Cloud Foundation, Respect4Horses, HfH Advisory Board, America’s Wild Horse Advocates, Grass Roots Horse, and many, many more horse advocates all over the nation, stand together in a unified call to stop BLM roundups.  

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will be having their Advisory Board Meeting in Phoenix AZ on March 10th and 11th. They will be discussing strategies for further removal and stockpiling and perhaps even euthanasia of America’s Wild Horses and Burros.
We are asking YOU to come stand with us, demanding a screeching halt to the unsustainable, cruel, and un-necessary  BLM round-ups, before it is too late.
