I’ve had a few of you folks ask me over the past month or so when I was going to do another You Be the Judge edition. Well, I can’t quite say that for sure just yet. I have been tinkering with a few ideas here and there, and of course there are several current affairs that I would like to “pick on” and play the Devil’s Advocate to, but there’s just not been that one in particular that I have been able to settle on yet. This series takes a great amount of time to produce due to the research involved that is necessary to uphold the purpose of the editions themselves.  To give some background to anyone new to this series, I’ve included the links below to the entire series here on TMP. They can also be found in pdf format on the You Be the Judge page. As well, I’m including here “Playing the Devil’s Advocate as a preface to the series. (I encourage each of you to read the information on the YBTJ page to get a better understanding of the overall purpose.)     

So without further adieu, the Texas Mustang Project presents the You Be the Judge Series…    

*I’ve had several requests to post the Q&A interview with Ginger Kathrens of The Cloud Foundation in response to the Pryor Mountain Gather of September 2009. I proofread the document before posting, and I realized just how much I have learned about the Wild Horse Management situation as a whole in just a few months. It is my hope that its content will be taken in this spirit. And yea, it’s really long too, but Ginger and I tend to gab quite a bit when we get on this subject, so just bear with us… Trust me, it’s worth it! 🙂 Q&A with Ginger Kathrens September 11, 2009

    if readers on here do not have ginger kathrens 3 videos on cloud i strongly recommend you get them – will break your heart on their beauty – you can order from online – now the forest service want to run a fence along some of the area where cloud and other wild horses graze so that is on her website – – also was at walmart yesterday and saw some great fabric with wild horses on it led by a palomino stallion – going back today and getting a yard of it – dont know if all walmart stores carry it but you could ck –

    • Funny that you mention this under the YBTJ post as I was looking into doing a YBTJ Edition on this very subject…
      If the the horses wander off an HMA, they are no longer protected under the 1971 WFRH&B Act. Therefore, any decisions that are made by the FS to remove them or otherwise “mess” with them cannot be stopped by law because they are on FS lands…, not BLM HMAs. With the current scheme of things (the FS cracking down on national wilderness area disruptions) I wouldn’t want to take the chance of having any horses at all on their lands for any length of time at all just to be on the safe side. Furthermore, if the horses keep everyone p-oed by their very presence, how willing do you think they are going to be during talks about range expansion? Not very.
