I'm familiar with the Wild Horse Sanctuary The Wild Horse Sanctuary of Shingletown, CA ... but this one sounds like a good one, also. I felt the video was a bit contrived, but I also understand they need to present their information in such a manner as to tug people's heartstrings to open their wallets and help. In that respect, it is certainly a good video and serves its' purpose, but I had difficulty watching/listening to it. I was constantly questioning their facts and images and wondering how much was truth and how much was 'spin'. I do not deny that the images they showed were absolutely images of horses in need, but I also am not convinced the images are pure. Not that they aren't un-doctored or real, but that I do not know if they are actual images of their own experiences or ones selected from random sources for the most impact. It is a curse to be questioning things like this, but because of PETA, ALF and Shark, organizations who deliberately manipulate information, I *do* question their fact sources and that is sad.
It is well known that range management issues must be closely controlled to help prevent such starvation as was seen, and it is also well known that if the wild horses are in that condition .... the indigenous and natural flora and fauna are suffering just as greatly and man absolutely *does* need to step in.
