Save the Mustangs Foundation has just released its 2006 Fundraising Calendar.
The Calendar higlights photographs by Primitive Pictures Inc. that was taken in Rock Springs Wyoming during the roundup and selection of the 8 Wild Mustangs that were purchased by the Foundation from the BLM in March of 2005 as part of our awareness project.
All proceeds from this Calendar will go towards Save The Mustangs Foundation.
With your help through sponsorship and donations, “Save the Mustangs Foundation” will lease and/or purchase range land, allowing the Wild Horses to roam free in as close to their normal habitat as possible. As the wild horses come to the end of their natural life cycle, monies will be used to purchase more “excess” animals from the various agencies that have been assigned to round up herds in the wild.
Save the Mustang Foundation” is presently working in conjunction with Primitive Pictures, Inc., Ontario, Canada on a documentary about the Wild Horses in America and their plight amidst the latest amendment passed into law in December 2004. This new amendment, commonly known as the “Burn’s Amendment,” classifies 8400 horses and burros as “Excess Animals,” slated for destruction.
The documentary will give an overall view of the Wild Horses and how their dilemma began, to what other groups are doing for the cause, the initial commitment of Save the Mustang Foundation, along with Primitive Pictures, Inc. to save, transport and train the first, purchased, twenty, freeze branded USA Mustangs on Canadian soil. This should mark a place in history on both sides of the border. This transaction occurred simultaneously with the second closing of the borders for transporting Canadian cattle to the United States. This alone shows the steadfast commitment to overcome conflict among two great countries people. With the ability to see past the governmental issues, we are able to work together to acknowledge, and put forth efforts to preserve these Wild Horses and Burros.
