Wild Mares Mother’s Day Campaign

Tuesday's Horse

Send a Mother’s Day Card to the First Lady
This is a quick yet potentially powerful campaign to raise more awareness concerning our wild horses who are being rounded up and held captive long-term by the BLM where they are suffering great harm from abrupt displacement from their lands and herds, insufficient care and overall mistreatment and mismanagement.
Included in these roundups are the Calico mares separated from their foals, spontaneously aborting their foals, watching while a callous wrangler lassos her terrified foal by his frail legs, throwing him to the ground in a sadistic game or her foals dying from shock, exhaustion, dehydration, exposure to the elements or literally run off their hooves.

Please send a Mother’s Day card to the First Lady.
Write an inscription inside your Mother’s Day card, or enclose a letter with it.
An inscription might be, “In honor of the Mustang Mother Mares who have lost their foals, please ask the President to call a halt to all wild horse roundups and an investigation into the BLM.”
Sign your name, and include your city and state. Youngsters, please include your age.
If you opt to include a letter, this is an opportunity to make it personal, from you. Tell our First Lady how you really feel about what is happening to our wild horses and burros. Sit down with a blank piece of paper and pour out your heart. That will mean more to Mrs. Obama than any number of facts or figures. If you do this, she may even show it to Mr. Obama!
First Lady Michelle Obama

Note: Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so please act quickly. All mail to the First Lady must go through security before being delivered to her. Thank you.
