A tribute to the spirit of wild horses and burros


Carry the Light!

Forty years ago on December 15, 1971 President Nixon signed into law the Wild Free Roaming Horse and Burro Act.


Join us in remembering that the fight to gain accountable protection for our “living symbol of the pioneer spirt” wages on.¬†

The thought is a simple one, light a candle.

Form a candlelight group, or simply light one and place in your window, as a symbol that we will not give up until each life that is to be protected under law is given the consideration due to humanely care for them as outlined by law. That they receive their fair share of resource when they dwell free on public land and are treated with the respect they deserve when removed and enter into the realm of domestication and sanctuary.

As events are organized they will be posted on this Blog.

In remembrance of the spirit of the law, and the continued will to see it implemented, we will light candles across the Nation.
