Your Wild Horse & Burro Letters to Washington DC!

Straight from the Horse's Heart

An ALERT from Ginger Kathrens of the Cloud Foundation
Call the White House Thursday, September 13th!

Make the Call!!
Dear Wild Horse and Burro Freedom Fighters;
Remember all those postcards you mailed in to the Cloud Foundation over the past two years? Or the flyers and petitions you signed demanding a moratorium to roundups at events where I was speaking?
Well, tomorrow R.T. and Terry Fitch (Wild Horse Freedom Federation) and Jerry Finch (Habitat for Horses) will be hand carrying the Cloud Foundation mail as well as what (they have received (over 15,000 cards and letters!) to Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA). Congressman Moran will be giving your messages to the President.
Congressman Moran, a staunch supporter of our wild horses and burros, has a personal connection to Cloud’s herd. In 2009 we named a pretty little dun filly Madison in honor of the Congressman’s granddaughter, Madison. Madison, now a grulla filly, was captured in BLM’s bait trapping last month and adopted by Lisa Friday of near Richmond, Virginia. Ironically, Madison, the filly, arrived in Virginia today — the day before the Congressman receives your cards and letters.
Let’s hope that the heartfelt messages the Congressman delivers to the White House will finally put the plight of our mustangs and burros on President Obama’s radar, and that he will stop the wholesale elimination of animals that only want to live in freedom with their families on lands designated by Congress for their use!
Here’s what you can do to help get the President’s attention:
Please call the White House tomorrow (September 13) and tell the people who answer the phones:
I want President Obama to stop BLM from removing our wild horses and burros from their legally designated home ranges!

Thanks for everything you do and continue to do. Keep up the fight. Trust we will never give up.
Happy Trails!
