An Update Video on the Divide Basin Roundup

An Update Video on the Divide Basin Roundup

Dear Wild Horse Champions;

We invite you to screen the linked 10-minute story about our trip late last month to the vast, sage-covered landscapes of southern Wyoming. Lauryn Wachs and I attended the roundup of wild horses in the Great Divide Basin.

As many of you know, I would rather be strung up by my thumbs than attend these sad and savage events. It blows me away that our tax dollars are still being wasted on helicopter roundups to scour the land of these beautiful creatures. But, the program speaks for itself—both to the beauty of the land and the horses.

One family band still free in the wild of Divide Basin
We did have time to drive through the range (with Carol Walker as our guide) and we filmed wild horse families not yet molested by roundup crews. This, of course, was wonderful. That footage is included in the film as well. Also included in the short presentation are some stats that reflect the unfair treatment of wild horses on our public lands in the West and should help you frame arguments and complaints.

One band ran up toward our car on their way from the waterhole

Please watch the show and then email your concerns to your U.S. Senators and Congressional representatives at or send them a letter or give their offices a call, or do all three… over and over again. Be a polite pest and make a difference!  Thanks so much.

These stallions have lost their freedom forever
Do what you can to help us fight for these beleaguered animals by donating to our efforts.

Happy Trails!
