EASTER SUNDAY.






Easter is a time to be thankful for what another has done for us.

Nowadays, most people spend Easter with family…  I don’t have much family, however, I have so many people to be thankful for – I couldn’t begin to name one without feeling badly about not naming another.

So, instead, I’ll name my dogs.

Presently, we have two dogs who drive me absolutely insane – daily.  They are too busy, very needy and they wake up very early.

However, I adore them.

Vivienne is the peace keeper.  She is very serious and very neurotic about certain things.

Natty effervesces with joy de vivre.  He is always, ALWAYS happy.  Natty’s tail wags so often and so hard that he once sprained his tail and couldn’t move it for a few days.

Vivienne guards and protects.  Natty has fun all day long.

So on this Easter Sunday, I shine a light on my love-giving dogs who are as innocent and kind as God would want.

FOR EXAMPLE…

Here is Natty, not upset at all that I’ve just scolded him for ruining his bed, getting into the Christmas wrap and chewing on boxes.

As you can see, even when I am being very stern, he doesn’t ever believe that anyone could ever be angry with him.

Here we have very serious Vivienne, who knows how bad this is and is trying to make sure that I know that she had nothing to do with it.

Here we have Vivey with the exact same serious expression as she puts her protective paw over little Natty.

Hubby has an app where he can have cards created and sent to me. This was my Valentine’s card from the dogs. Vivey very serious. Natty full of confidence. They are such amazing creatures.

HAPPY EASTER!

REMEMBER how I said that wild horses should be used for fire prevention… Well LOOK at this!






For a while now, I’ve wondered why wild horses aren’t used for fire protection and weed abatement.  Well, I haven’t actually wondered because I know why they aren’t used… but I guess what I’m saying is I wish they could be used for weed abatement and fire protection, because they do it already, basically, in the wild.

Do you remember when I worked at Halter Ranch and they adopted 3 pregnant Mama donkeys and one male, plus the 3 spotted donkey mama and baby pairs?  Well, that was all for weed abatement.  I think donkeys are perfect for wineries.  They scare off the boar and birds, plus they eat the weeds/grasses.  Wildlife corridors in large vineyards are essential.  So much better than chemicals.

Anyway, this morning, I found this article very interesting.  Perhaps you’d like to support

Here we go!

Greetings:

After years of hard work and sacrifices, and using thousands of dollars of our own money, we have finally completed our initial research, attracted an all-volunteer (not paid) team of dedicated wild horse advocates, and launched our new website.

I am grateful to be part of our professional board of advocates, who are from all walks of life and who share a deep interest in accomplishing the intelligent, cost-effective conservation of native species American wild horses.

Our Case Study from years of on-going (24-7, 365) field research with free-roaming wild horses in a fire-prone wilderness area, proves the value proposition to taxpayers by having native species American wild horses restored as keystone herbivores in designated (aka: critical) wilderness areas that are both economically and ecologically appropriate.

There is approximately 110-million acres of designated (critical) wilderness areas in America (and wildlife therein), all of which is currently at grave risk of incineration by wildfire. If just a tiny fraction of this vast landscape in the far western U.S. states was used for rewilding and humanely relocating unmolested family bands of wild horses, it would be more than enough to solve much of the wild horse management issues, as well as cost-effectively addressing wildfire fuels management via the symbiotic grazing of native species American wild horses.

Our Plan, Wild Horse Fire Brigade, provides a holistic, humane, cost-effective and natural method for keeping wild horses ‘wild & free’ by allowing them to resume their naturally evolved roles as keystone herbivores on remote wilderness landscapes where they will not be in conflict with ongoing demands by powerful economic forces.

The Wild Horse Fire Brigade plan incorporates a combination of rewilding wild horses from government holding facilities under existing law, and/or humanely relocating them away from areas where they are in conflict and slated for roundup and worse.

Each horse restored into an appropriate wilderness area provides approximately $72,000.00 worth of wildfire fuel reduction services over the course of its lifespan to taxpayers. This value greatly outweighs wild horses being slaughtered and used for pet-food, which yields a value to kill-buyers at USFS and BLM auctions of about $160.00 per horse.

Please join us and our dedicated team of professionals in providing a genuine solution for the plight of America’s remaining wild horses before it’s too late.
