Hello and Happy Thursday! I saw a quote recently that said “Inch by inch – it’s a cinch! Yard by yard, it’s hard” I remind myself of that everyday as I wonder if anything I am doing is actually making a difference.
Every day we get reminders that WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERNCE!! Thank you to all of you who love this herd for all of your help and support!
We keep saying that we are advocating from every angle we can imagine. Inch by inch…we are getting there!
We have two easy Calls to Action for you today!
Call to Action #6 came about because we have been getting tons of emails and PM’s on what your public comment SHOULD look like. We are do grateful to our friends at Save our Wild Horses and ECI for co-hosting a zoom event to cover this important topic!
Please mark your calendars for January 8th at 3 pm EST!
From the flyer:
Join us and ECI as we co-host Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates who will discuss the National Park Service’s plan to remove all of the wild horses from Theodore Roosevelt National Park. CHWHA will discuss the 3 Livestock Plan options provided by the National Park Service and how to comment on the plan, as well as additional actions you can take to help. Feel free to share this graphic and ask all to attend!
Sunday, January 8th, 2023, at 3pm EST
A recording of the webinar will be available if you are unable to attend!
We hope to see you there!

Chasing Horses Wild Horse Advocates is committed to advocating for a wild horse management plan and protection for these unique wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home! We are fighting for a management plan that is guided by science especially when it comes to decisions regarding the removal of horses and the administration of birth control. Many other wild horse management plans have proven to be successful with their science-based plans. We are asking for the same for this amazing group of wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home.
