Really?? This is the letter that we received from Sen. Reid regarding the Wild Horse Roundups! FORM LETTER

Humm nowhere in this letter does it address the question of how the horses are being shipped off to Mexico and Canada and sold! Pretty much a form letter!! And they did not even spell my last name right!!
Dear Mrs. Mccabe-Joy:

Thank you for contacting me. I appreciate hearing from you.

Nevada is home to the majority of the wild horses in our country.  As a result, the care and management of these animals is a key issue for many people around our great state.  I have been critical of the Bureau of Land Management's wild horse and burro program for many years.  I have spoken directly with the Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, about this problem and he shares my concerns.
As you may know, the Department of Interior recently came forward with a proposal to overhaul our nation's wild horse and burro program.  I welcome these ideas and the related proposals brought forward by wild horse advocates from around Nevada and the country.  With over 30,000 horses on the range and more than 30,000 horses in long-term holding facilities, change is badly needed.
Based on the information that the Department has released to date, we know that the Secretary is committed to keeping a large and sustainable horse population on our public lands, ensuring that Nevadans will get to enjoy these animals for generations to come.  His proposal also provides improved options for the long-term care of horses that are removed from our rangelands, and makes some long-sought changes to the wild horse adoption program.
I am happy to share with you that on September 24, 2009, I led the passage of a resolution in support of the Inaugural National Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Day which was held on September 26th. Over 18,000 horses await adoption.  I hope you will educate your friends and others about this important program.  These amazing animals need good homes and can be trained to work stock, to ride trails in the backcountry, and even to serve our communities as police horses.   In addition, the horses and burros can enrich the lives of our communities and those who adopt them.

In the end, our goal must be to protect our nation's wild horses while improving the health of our rangelands and our vital wildlife habitat through more consistent and effective management.  You can be assured that I will remain engaged in these conversations and will work to protect our state's critical natural resources.

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. For more information about my work for Nevada, my role in the United States Senate Leadership, or to subscribe to regular e-mail updates on the issues that interest you, please visit my Web site at I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

My best wishes to you.

DMZ Says...are you aware that our Wild Horses are being killed??

Wild horses are also slaughtered, since a 2004 backdoor Congressional rider engineered by then-Senator Conrad Burns (R–MT) gutted the protections afforded by the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971. Now, the Bureau of Land Management, the agency responsible for protecting wild horses, must sell "excess" horses (those 10 years of age or older, or not adopted after three tries) at auction. As a result, wild horses are being removed from their range at an alarming rate with some being sold for slaughter.

Hooray or should say "FOUR PAWS UP" for Harrah's!! Dog Friendly!!
