    If you say so. You should find someone else to discuss your disjointed rants with, I have no idea what you're babbling about.
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    §1331. Congressional findings and declaration of policy Congress finds and declares that wild free-roaming horses and burros are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West; that they contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people; and that these horses and burros are fast disappearing from the American scene. It is the policy of Congress that wild free-roaming horses and burros shall be protected from capture, branding, harassment, or death; and to accomplish this they are to be considered in the area where presently found, as an integral part of the natural system of the public lands.
    The government doesn't follow the law. It does what it wants.

    The horses are not starving, as they are perfectly healthy in pictures. The lying propaganda that the horses are starving, so they can be cruelly rounded up, their families and friends broken apart, so that they can be sold for next to nothing to kill buyers where they are shipped to Canada and Mexico to be processed to death.

    So, much for caring. It is a lie that is being perpetuated, as the welfare ranchers receive subsidies, as the Trump Administration raised it for them, and so cry about welfare. As long as it is they who receive such subsidies, it is not called welfare. That label is just for the food stamp recipients, not the special class of rich who like that wealth.

    Disgusting, evil, thieves. Horse theft, that is what it is. 'It's fun to trap, we bank on those contracts.' Plush contracts to trap horses, but claim it is because the horses are thirsty, not well-fed, they reproduce too much, they trample the grasses, although the cattle do so more, but they are on millions of acres of public lands, to it equals death.

    Lie upon lie, the original law designed by a Republican President, the same one Hillary Clinton helped to remove from office, President Richard Milhous Nixon, not only signed Public Law 92-195, but wanted it, but that same law has been trampled upon by those who deserve to be in prison for what they have done is not for health.

    They probably want more grazing range for upping ranchers' rent. Both these horse and the ranchers are interlopers on the land.

    The Bureau of Land Management is allowing the trapping of perfectly healthy horses to be sold at auctions for little and sent to slaughter because special interests are parasites on the land. The cattle don't belong on public lands being subsidized at fewer cents per cattle forced to partake in a scam against the American people where tariffs traded.

    There would be way more wealth if the wildlife that God designates as their natural territory was not being eradicated. Horses have always been part of the land, no matter how they were introduced. The propaganda being stated against horses is shallow as leviathan will be leveled.

    Genesis 49:5-7, Simeon and Levi had weapons of violence of which they hamstrung oxen, as Isaiah 66:3 is 'to kill an ox is as if a man was murdered'.

    Many horses not accounted for as in some sort of fashion they just disappeared.

    The Americas of which there are much more ancient pillars of wisdom prove that you have lied still. Because the whole Earth was one land at one time. As horses have always lived on the Earth of once was called Paradise. You don't care though as the news goes forth of who is responsible for blood-soaked horse's' bridles. ***** ******

    The genus Equus, which includes modern horses, zebras, and asses, is the only surviving genus in a once diverse family of horses that included 27 genera. The precise date of origin for the genus Equus is unknown, but evidence documents the dispersal of Equus from North America to Eurasia approximately 2–3 million years ago and a possible origin at about 3.4–3.9 million years ago. Following this original emigration, several extinctions occurred in North America, with additional migrations to Asia (presumably across the Bering Land Bridge), and return migrations back to North America, over time. The last North American extinction probably occurred between 13,000 and 11,000 years ago (Fazio 1995), although more recent extinctions for horses have been suggested. Dr. Ross MacPhee, Curator of Mammalogy at the American Museum of Natural History, and colleagues, have dated the existence of woolly mammoths and horses in North America to as recent as 7,600 years ago. Had it not been for previous westward migration, over the 2 Bering Land Bridge, into northwestern Russia (Siberia) and Asia, the horse would have faced complete extinction. However, Equus survived and spread to all continents of the globe, except Australia and Antarctica.

    In 1493, on Columbus’ second voyage to the Americas, Spanish horses, representing E. caballus, were brought back to North America, first in the Virgin Islands, and, in 1519, they were reintroduced on the continent, in modern-day Mexico, from where they radiated throughout the American Great Plains, after escape from their owners or by pilfering (Fazio 1995).

    Critics of the idea that the North American wild horse is a native animal, using only selected paleontological data, assert that the species, E. caballus (or the caballoid horse), which was introduced in 1519, was a different species from that which disappeared between 13,000–11,000 years before. Herein lies the crux of the debate. However, neither paleontological opinion nor modern molecular genetics support the contention that the modern horse in North America is non-native.

    Equus, a monophyletic taxon, is first represented in the North American fossil record about four million years ago by E. simplicidens, and this species is directly ancestral to later Blancan species about three million years ago (Azaroli and Voorhies 1990). Azzaroli (1992) believed, again on the basis of fossil records, that E. simplicidens gave rise to the late Pliocene E. Idahoensis, and that species, in turn, gave rise to the first caballoid horses two million years ago in North America. Some migrated to Asia about one million years ago, while others, such as E. niobrarensis, remained in North America.

    After the dog, horses have been man's best friend. They deserve better than to be treated as meat animals. As a species, they have paid their dues in historical service to mankind. It's wrong to slaughter them for meat. They have more right to the plains than cattle. Call it a release from slavery and well-earned freedom.

    I have never eaten horse meat and view it like eating dogs or cats in terms of disgust.
