17 NAVAJO HORSES RESCUED DURING  ROUNDUPS NEED HOMES

Seventeen Native Navajo wild horses, ages 6 months -5 years old, were captured in November from the open rangelands of New Mexico narrowly escaping slaughter during the U.S. government funded roundups, sponsored with American tax dollars, and under the misguidance of the BLM and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).  The horses are temporarily safe thanks local rescue team members of the Navajo Horses Rescue and Recovery Mission, but time is of the essence. These horses need immediate transport out of New Mexico to safe harbor.

They were picked up “as strays” during the recent roundups, just outside the reservation. Despite their obvious healthy appearance, they were claimed to be “starving due to a lack of forage on the reservation”.
