Hello and Happy Tuesday to everyone!

I LOVE watching the babies totally relaxed and laid out like this! 

How content they must be?

Not a care in the world ~ as it should be!

These babies – and ALL of the wild horses that call Theodore Roosevelt National Park home – have no idea that the park is planning to remove every single one of them from the only home they have ever known.

And then…

Can you imagine – being so tired that you just plop down right where you are standing?  How great would that be?!

I feel like that most days!  I am sure many of you can relate.

It has been a long 7 months since the park announced their plans to eliminate the entire herd of horses from Theodore Roosevelt National Park.  We have accomplished A LOT and the horses have gained a TON of support.

As tired as we may be – we aren’t done yet!

We get one chance to save these horses.


If we fail – they all lose their homes.  Some might find good homes.  Others may go to slaughter. The fate of many, we may never know.

As much as I would LOVE to lay down and just stop for a few days, we have learned so many times through this process that timing is EVERYTHING.  There is A LOT being done right now to try to save these horses. 

We can’t stop.

We get one chance. 

ALL of the horses deserve this peace and contentment.

ALL of US deserve the chance to be in the presence of such peace and contentment. 

Our children and grandchildren deserve to experience the beauty and freedom of wild horses in Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

I was talking to a wild horse advocate friend of mine.  We were talking about how exhausting and heartbreaking advocating for wild horses can be. Then we talked about fellow friends who have decided this is all too much and have quit their role in the fight.

While we can understand and even relate….

How sad for the horses. 

How sad for our future.

If you are tired, please, rest.


These guys are counting on us ~ even if they don’t know it!

We can’t let them down.

We ONLY get ONE CHANCE to save them.

I hope they can count on you!

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.

One thought on “Tired….

  1. Thank you Chris! Your devotion and nonstop advocacy is an inspiration! I’m not sure how you keep on keeping on, but I am so thankful for you! I will try harder! I will keep pushing, I will try to do more!
