On April 25 a group of 16 AWHPC supporters met with staff for Senator Feinstein to request her leadership and intervention to protect wild horses. By taking the time to meet with the Senator's staff personally, these advocates made a strong impression that Senator Feinstein's constituents care about this issue. Their experience can serve as a model for AWHPC supporters in other areas to mobilize in order to get your legislators to stand up for wild horses and sign the Keep Wild Horses Wild pledge.

Thanksgiving is finally here. It’s always been my favorite holiday. I love spending time with my family thinking on how blessed I am.
From November 22 to December 4, 2013, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rounded up through helicopter stampedes 668 horses in the Salt Wells Creek Herd Management Area (HMA) in Wyoming's checkerboard area.
In October 2013, we shared the story of Red, his seven family members and 15 other mustangs -- including a very special and stoic senior stallion (see story below) -- who were captured from their homes on Nevada's Virginia Range by the Nevada Department of Agriculture.
On September 9 – 11, 2013, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board met in Arlington, VA.
The Interior Department's Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) began to implement its ill-conceived plan to eliminate all wild horses and burros in the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge in northern Nevada.
Following the ruling, we did everything we could to save the 149 horses from slaughter, and after an amazing collaborative effort, these horses are safe.
