WHORL-WINDS...PRIMITIVE MARKINGS...THINGS OF THE PAST...

Last year when I followed daily the blog of www.cindybranham.com training my favorite TUCKER for the Ft. Worth Makeover, I was upset each evening that the blog came up with pictures only and no video. Then on top of all there were days, where only text appeared...Here is one of those: I took Tag#900 for a long walk today. Away from the other horses, saddled but without concern we crossed ditches and talked things over. He figured that life was intact and everything would work out fine...then his head went up and in the far distance - HELICOPTER- now Lauren and others have noticed the same thing. They will never forget...How different it would be if our horses had no trauma. You say, it can't be done. Well it can. There are numerous accounts of low stress roundups and baitings in areas where folks have taken steps to observe and know these horses...and I remember a friend of mine saying, that the mares will come in to get their babies weaned if they know that there will be no tragedy...We do not need those antiquated, primitive and aggressive capture methods. If it takes money - that's where the budget should go, not to the holding pens, if it takes people utilize the millions of volunteers and organizations (no child left inside), if it takes monitoring and auditing (like Temple Grandin insists) that too is in the budget. If it takes riders, weeks and diligence, if it takes sensible birth control and maybe predator reintroduction. In addition sanctuaries, reserves and nature preservation projects form adequate venues for alternate solutions. I have 6 mustangs, who did NOT go through a roundup, whose heads stay down clear of memories -  HELICOPTER ---------
