    Hope someone can get close to this mare or tranquilizer her so they can get the rope off of her. So she can be safer in the wild.

    Mosie, i have a stallion Named Doc Romeo . i bought him at a blm sale in Burns Or. Doc is a wild kiger Mustang He knows how to get his halter off all by himself and sometimes in the round pen if ive dropped a line he knows how to get that off too. Mustangs are very smart.. Hence i think the paint mare
    may be able to get out of her lasso.. i think she will make it . I like this story. Mark friedrich.

    Why not let those herds just live in the wild?there are good domestic horses enough to sell and buy!!

      Because ranchers want the land for cows. So they can then slaughter them for meat! Sick cycle. There’s got to be a way they can let these horses graze protected too. It’s for greed. (Google it!)

    It is so sad that our government can inflict such pain on these animals. If any civilian did this they would be arrested and charged with animal cruelty.

    I also don’t understand and yet I do. I understand how ranchers got the idea that they and only they can use our western public lands as there own. It didn’t happen over night. But little by little they were lead by public service, they were given cheep leases. They been to expand and get expendable money to buy lobists. They formed groups and associations. All of this happened slowly. They had more and more power and money. All of this wasn’t really hidden, but sorta. The killing of the predictors that ranchers wanted killed this had a great big effect on our wild horses and the environment. The environmental science of the interactions and impacts on our public lands has told the story. The research is in. But it’s not what ranchers want to hear. In order to keep this public land in their pockets the ranchers came up with another villain. And that villain was the wild horse. By adopting the wild horse as the villain they tried to show people that it is the horse who is responsible for the destruction of public range lands. Perfect. Blame the horses. This scenario is played out over and over. And we the people play into this cycle. To get out of the cycle we must do what the ranchers did. We need to come together. We need to create one organization. That much is obvious. And that is where my part of this story must end. Because I am not a political person. And politics is the only way we will save not just our wild ones, but all of our environments including the plants and animals, the predictors and the butterflies. We need them all.

    Sweet, beautiful, strong and brave mare. I hope you get that lasso off your neck. Somehow. Terrible behavior by humans. Shame on them.

    I’m very wondering that we human are so stupid and ignorant !!!! They are not able to think as of their point of the nose and this make me really furious. I hope that someone will find her and can help to get our of this Lasso and that she will be free for the rest of her life.

    What can’t we leave Mother Nature alone??? Why can’t we leave these beautiful wild horses in peace.

    We should mind our own business and to boot become vegetarians. Who needs all this meat? Stop breeding so many cows which are invasive to our environment in more ways than one.

    This is public land, paid for by taxpayers money and the ranchers’ lobby should get out ASAP.

    Leave nature and animals live as they should be. These round ups are truly disgusting! Shame on these ranchers – stop them in their tracks.

    We need to change our attitudes about many issues quickly!!!!

    I can’t stop crying… I’m absolutely ashamed of being a human being. Human “kind”, what an oxymoron when used figuratively and literally more and more as each day passes. This is absolutely heartbreaking and devastating and normally I would say inhumane but I don’t know what being humanity or being humane means anymore. What a remarkable mare! Thank you for sharing your story Mark Friedrich, you’ve given me hope for her. What an amazingly beautiful, courageous and extraordinary representation for all of these poor wild horses and thank you for sharing what you saw, felt and experienced Mosie. I can’t even begin to imagine how you must feel after watching her being pursued (definitely looking pregnant to me) and fighting with every ounce of strength and these evil monsters, being so cruel and relentless…what is happening, it’s unforgivable as well as unforgettable with the way you wrote about it. I’ll never forget about her, hoping and praying she remains free and finds a new band to join as well. Beautifully written… SO bittersweet, such heart and spirit, a beautiful soul. I have great faith she’s going to okay, both of them.<3 <3 <3. #AllLivesMatter

    Well Nancy she is a precious survivor and if I were close enough I would help take it off of her no matter who likes it. These are our precious icons and they deserve to run free on THEIR LAND !! They should not have to worry about round ups or some monster chasing them with helicopters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also she would still be with her baby as she should be.
