actually, was Mrs. Pickens who said, “why is it a ‘milestone’ to continue the same tired, flawed model”… | i apologize 4 misquoting your eloquent words, as some 1 else’s


Again, i apologize 4 misquoting Madeline Picken’s wise & eloquent words, as some 1 else’s, who had quoted her…. [so, here are Hers, in Total context (from Her Saving America’s Mustangs Blog-site)—»
“Dear Friends & Supporters,
SAM would like to express its appreciation
for the BLM’s selection of
a 4,000 acre ranch in Wyoming
to house some wild horses,
-but this proposal raises more questions than it answers.
   It continues along the outdated + inhumane path
the BLM has pursued for years; continuing to give wild Horses
to Private ranch operations that
*profit from them – withOut assurances of a real public benefit.

But, let’s look at some of the other aspects of this proposed plan. –»

BLM has suggested they can do necessary NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) compliance work in about 3-6 months.
I have been waiting for over 2 years & have been told all along that NEPA compliance work on the proposal that I submitted –»
for an Eco-sanctuary in northern NV…
would take as long as 2 years,
if they ever start on it. ~
I can only presume that there is …
a special, unique “fast track” for a rancher where NEPA is concerned.

When I met with representatives of Elko County Commission to discuss my proposal for my ranch in northern NV,
I was told by the ranchers that taking only a 1,000 head Wouldn’t reallysave the government & taxpayers that much money-
and, therefore, wasn’t worth much.
Why then is a rancher taking 250 head “cause for celebration”?,
or is this just more double-talk?
• And, why is it a “milestone” to continue the same tired, flawed model, by which —-Horses are gathered in the wild, &
—turned over to ranchers who are *paid a stipend* by the BLM,
instead of
coming up with a humane plan which has a *return to the public*?
• The bottom line is this:
the BLM starts up the same tired program
& marches it out- as if
they are offering the Public & the wild horses
a new experience & direction (?)
— when the Reality
is
that — it is just more of the same
I wait futilely for years … while the BLM fiddles, instead of
deciding to participate in a truly revolutionary project
that would be ground-breaking
& change the paradigm;
different from business as usual, and
they … continue to putter on.
 ¤~¤
SAM certainly doesn’t want to criticize every small rancher that steps forward with a plan to take some horses.
• Unfortunately, the BLM has, since its inception, run the Wild Horse & Burro Programfor and
At– the direction of the ranchers. ¤~¤
We think the American *public is entitled to better*, is entitled to see— that
those with the right intentions & solid proposals are included in the process.
I thank you all for your continued support of Mustang Monument
and let’s all continue to *share the plight of the mustangs* in your local community.

Your Friend,
Madeleine Pickens & all the Mustangs

BLM chooses site for wild Horse Sanctuary
Feb. 24, 2012/ Associated Press
¤~¤ LARAMIE, Wyo. (WTW) – The Bureau of Land Management
has proposed using a private ranch in southeast Wyoming to house 250 wild Horses in a so-called eco-sanctuary.
• The agency said Friday that the facility would be publicly accessible,
in hopes of providing eco-tourism opportunities.
• The BLM expects to take 3 to 6 months
to conduct an environmental review of Deerwood Ranch, about 30 miles west of Laramie near Centennial,
to determine proposed ecosanctuary’s environmental viability.
• The selection is part of an effort to feed + care for wild horses removed from Western lands.
• With goal of controlling the “over-population” of herds,
BLM’s Wild Horse & Burro program gathers wild horses,
puts them up for adoption
& relocates them
in order to balance horse populations & land resources.”–
