boondoggle that has cost the taxpayers of this country lots of bucks.  Latest
figure for the state of Nevada is 22,000 horses destroying game habitat and
denuding the sage brush & grass lands.  Horses,  if left to their own
will eat everything, dig out roots, make such a mess of springs that many of
them cease to exist.  The true natural animals, Antelopes,Big horn sheep, deer
etc. end up not having use of the water and feed that they need.

If you truly want to help them, pick up twenty or so from the BLM so that they
will have room for more of those that are starving to death around Las Vegas
and other areas.  Just get a thousand people join you and the remaining horses
