25 Days

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.

The photo at the top of this page was taken on June 12, 2019.  The day that Dolly gave birth to Colt Anzar.  The fabulous Stallion Flax is his sire. 

Can you FEEL the love in this photo? 

Anzar turns 4 years old this year.  He is still with his natal band and helps his father defend their family and keep them safe.  Everyone is waiting to see how much longer Flax allows him to stay with the band. 

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is the ONLY home that Anzar, Flax, Dolly and all of the 185 wild horses that make up this herd have ever known. 

The park has clearly announced their plans: Alternative C – Proposed Action: Phased Reduction of Herds to No Livestock

That plan would rip apart every family of horses in this herd.  Their proposed action would eliminate EVERY wild horse from the park’s landscape.  Once the park is allowed to remove the horses from the park, you can bet there will be NO getting them back!

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr said “”Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

IF the wild horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park matter to you – PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT BEING SILENT AT THIS TIME!! 

We have 25 days to get the support of as many people possible to help change the park’s current course for our wild horses. We have 25 days to get the word out about the plight of these iconic wild horses.  We have 25 days to let the park know WHAT other alternatives they should consider.  American Wild Horse Campaign has listed some comments for you in their Call to Action today: https://secure.everyaction.com/uPCRult4YUaFYzVPO7liHA2?emci=0c0ec38b-408d-ed11-9d7b-00224832e811&emdi=c6ee3b66-de8d-ed11-9d7b-00224832e811&ceid=10260941

We have added several Calls to Action on our website for different ways that we believe can help save the amazing herd of wild horses that calls Theodore Roosevelt National Park home.  Have you completed these calls to action?

Can the wild horses of Theodore Roosevelt National Park count on you?

Thank you for your support!

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.

  1. Thank you, thank you all for bringing this terrible action by our US Parks Dept under the leadership of the Dept of the Interior and Deb Haaland!! I attended the zoom meeting today and it was very informative. You’ve listed many actions that we can all take now to help save these iconic wild horses of TRNP in ND. I’ll make the calls, send the letters, and attend the zoom meeting on Thursday.
