Wild horses are an integral part of the ecosystem of the rangelands of the United States and the State of Nevada. Bill SJR1, introduced January 10, 2013, by Senator Mark Manendo (Las Vegas) discusses briefly the history of the wild horses and burros, their contribution to our history, and introduces a concept in which eco-sanctuaries can be built in the State of Nevada to allow the wild horses and burros to survive in their natural environment, allow people to view and photograph the wild horses and burros, as well as provide a much needed boost to the Nevada economy. The link to the Bill as introduced can be found at the end of this message. Please...we owe this to these magnificent animals who have been through so much. Thank you!

      Over forty years ago, the American people spoke with one voice on an issue that clearly touched the heart of the nation. The Wild Horse and Burro Act of 1971 was signed into law, over the objections of the powerful cattle industry. Congress was flooded with more letters and telegrams about wild mustangs than for any other issue save the Vietnam War. They insisted that wild horses must be preserved on public lands. That demand became law.

      We are running out of natural habitats. I have pic of the horses at the river. I see nothing wrong with them down at the river

      Our wild horses are part of history and represent Nevada in so many ways. Please offer the helping hand to them.
