[November 28] We cross on average 120 wild horses per day at the Coon Bluff 3 way stop. It is very safe and no horse has ever been hit there. Even on Thanksgiving, our volunteers are there to safely cross horses. They had their Thanksgiving dinner tailgate-style.
Thankful for those volunteers!
One of the most important things in life is to feel thankful. Thankful for all you have, all you love, all you are, and all that you have accomplished.
In order to feel thankful you have to realize that even when things might not be easy, things could have been different, that it didn’t have to be so, and that who you love and what you have is special.
The Salt River wild horses are special, they are living remnants of our historic past, even of the pilgrims and the pioneers who settled here. They represent who we are as Americans and what we stand for; family and freedom.
While almost gone forever, this community stood up for these free roaming horses and won – it could have easily turned out much different.
We are thankful that the Salt River wild horses are still here. We are thankful that the public is willing to pay for that, even while the government won’t. Our programs don’t come cheap and we are thankful to all of our donors, without whom humane management would not be possible.
We are thankful for the government agencies #AZDA #ForestService, who are willing to work with us, because without that, we could not do our job.
We are thankful for our coalition partners #AWHC, and for eachother; all of our volunteers, who day in and day out, care for and watch over all of the horses we love, without asking for a thing in return. #SRWHMG
We are thankful that even while the political pressure to remove Salt River wild horses remains high, we continue to stand strong, because we have you, the public, on our side. #wethepeople
We are thankful for our Governor who continues to love the horses and for our political allies. #Dougducey , @GovernorDougDucey
We are thankful to continue to represent you, who cherishes these historic treasures, – because without your support for our important programs, the Salt River wild horses would literally be; nowhere.
If you are thankful for the Salt River wild horses, please let us know and please share this post. From all of us to all of you,
have a Thankful and Happy Thanksgiving!
