Hello! We have some random bits of information to share with you:
First, if you missed our Horse Talk with Dr. Ross MacPhee, we have uploaded the video to our YouTube channel! https://youtu.be/tNbQf3fBf6k
Second, we spent some time today with Adrienne Oglesby at the KX News studio in Bismarck. Adrienne put together an amazing news piece that is very informative! https://www.kxnet.com/news/local-news/no-answers-but-more-questions-wild-horse-update/
We are coming down to the last day of our online silent auction! The auction ends on September 30, 2023 at 8 pm MST! There are a lot of amazing items in this auction, and we hope you will take the time to bid on some of these items. 100% of the money raised during this silent auction will go to support our advocacy work. https://chwha.betterworld.org/auctions/chwha-september-2023-silent-auct
Just a reminder that the Theodore Roosevelt National Park civic engagement meeting that was scheduled for this Tuesday has been cancelled. We brought to the attention of the Park that they scheduled their meeting at the same time that the Medora City Council was holding their monthly meeting.
Lastly, as the government shutdown is looming, we are happy to report that the state of North Dakota has offered to fund Theodore Roosevelt National Park during this shutdown AND the Park has accepted their offer. https://www.kxnet.com/news/state-news/state-will-help-keep-trnp-fully-open-if-shutdown-happens/ Hopefully this is a sign of things to come, and the Park will continue to allow the state to help them keep the horses.
We can always hope, right?!

Thank you for your support and have a GREAT weekend!
