33. The Online Corral
Freedom for Wild Horses
by Carol J. Walker
2w ago
The BLM’s online auction ended two weeks ago. My personal experience tells me that for both wild horses and their future human partners to benefit, you need to witness the horses in person. How they interact with other horses. How they move. What is their personality? This is very important. An online event simply cannot offer this. We need to make significant changes or completely dismantle the program.   If you have ever wondered what it would be like bidding to adopt a wild horse or burro in the online corral, don't miss this episode.

I met Thor for the first time in 2011 when I saw him napping in the flowers on a summer's day with several families of wild horses, some of the wildest on the range. Immediately I thought that Thor was the most beautiful foal I had ever seen, with his blue eyes and distinctive faded Sabino Pinto markings. I would go on to follow Thor for the remainder of his life.   This week, I dedicate this episode to Thor and all the wild horses who were recently captured during the McCullough Peaks roundup.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live with Mustangs?
