Today is the day that we ride (fly) into D.C. to hand deliver all of your letters and postcards demanding that the President order a STOP to the unnecessary wild horse and burro roundups that are decimating that last, few herds left on their rightful public lands.
Terry, Jerry Finch and myself will be on our way by the time you read this and we feel the weight of your frustration, anger and outrage on our shoulders.
We will be in the air for eight hours, today, so there will not be much in the way of updates unless I can pull off something cleaver with the ole iPad or iPhone while in the taxi in D.C. so don’t think for a second that we have forgotten about you.
Remember that while we are in the air Ginger Kathrens has tasked you all with calling the White House and prepping the Prez for the letters that Congressman Jim Moran is about to deliver to him…please let him know that we are on our way.
Thanks for all of the support and unbelievable participation. What started out with about 1,200 letters quickly blossomed into over 15,000 and each and everyone is as precisous as gold in it’s intent and heartfelt content.

We ride for all of you today as we ARE you…average American citizens who want to see our government do the right things instead of caving to special interests and stupidity.
Keep the faith, we are the strongest when united.

IN THE HANDS OF KILL BUYERS! When horses are purchased at auction by buyers intending to kill them, they're hauled away in double- decker tractor trailers where they are beaten and often blinded with baseball bats to mollify them. After crossing the border into Mexico, the animals are stabbed on each side-an act to tenderize their meat-and immobilized. Workers, then saw the horses legs off, at the knee and hang them to bleed out-all while the horses are ALIVE! (This is an excerpt, from an article written by Missy Diaz, crediting Victoria Mc Cullough and Sen. Joe Abruzzo for bringing awareness of horse slaughter, to Florida. In 2010 Florida Legislation unanimously passed the Horse Protection Bill, making it a felony to slaughter horses for personal or commercial use.)
