Attention: All Wild Horse and Burro Friends!

Upon the 40th Anniversary of the Wild Free Roaming Horses & Burros Act Of 1971, please come to honor America’s Wild Horses & Burros & their rightful freedom. Be present in testimony against their current outrageous treatment and to demand much needed reform to reinstate Wild Horses & Burros in the wild where they have been largely and illegally replaced. It is important that we make an impressive showing so that the true intent of this noble act be restored, meaning larger, truly long term viable herds. Wild Horse Annie worked tirelessly to achieve this groundbreaking legal protection & it must not be ignored. We must learn to share freedom with such noble and freedom-deserving animals as these.

Date & Time of Epic Event: Thursday, December 15th, 2011. 4-7 pm

Place of Event: Meet at Comma Coffee House At 312 South Carson Street, Carson City, Nevada. This is right across the street (west side) from the Nevada State Legislature Building & Grounds and just south of the silver-domed capitol.

Schedule of Activities:

4-5 pm: Speech by Wild Horse Ecologist/Enthusiast Craig C. Downer, 4th Generation Nevadan, & Author of 2 books about Wild Horses & Burros, (one 4 years in writing), now being released. Speech will highlight the positive contributions by Wild Horses & Burros to the North American Ecosystem and proofs they are native to our continent, as well as expose official corruption in the program while outlining an intelligent solution to reforming this aspect of American Life – one so linked to its spirit and soul. Slide photos of the exquisite wild ones in their beautiful natural homes throughout Nevada and the West will also be shown & questions/comments entertained.

5-7 pm: Candlelight Vigil on sidewalk in front of the Nevada State Legislature. This will honor the true magnificence of Wild Horses & Burros living in freedom and signal the urgent need to restore the heart of the law – to restore the now largely empty legal areas with Wild Horses/Burros in the wild, on BLM and US Forest Service Lands with fair resources allowed for them by our public servants.

7 pm – on: Get Together For This Wishing. For more information contact Craig at 775-901-2094;; or Cat at

Be there for our noble companions of the ages!
