CALICO I-NET ADOPTION - HOW YOU CAN HELP THE HORSES

SEE NEW BLOG POSTS BELOW
I'm keeping this at the "top" of the blog for now, but new posts will continue.  Thank you for the concern of so very many being voiced to us on behalf of the Calico wild horses, especially the desire of everyone to protect the  older horses.  Tremendous...

CALICO HORSES:
This past winter wild horses were gathered from the Calico Complex in Nevada. This roundup was one of the deadliest in recent BLM history.
The horses in this roundup have been some of the most comprehensively documented from roundup through adoption event. Many of these horses that were virtually unknown have now become dear to the public that knows some of their stories and names.
Elyse Gardner and Laura Leigh are attempting to facilitate placement of many of these beautiful horses.
Return to Freedom and Dream Catchers have stepped up to give many of these horses a safe haven where they can be as free as we can help them remain. Several people have come forward that can take in a couple and train them toward adoptive homes in a foster situation.
If you are interested in helping with this effort and desire more information please contact:

PayPal:
Tax receipts will be given from the 501 that accepts horses we are able to pull.

This list is subject to change as bidding progresses. It is our intention to sanctuary or home as many of these horses as possible. If you are bidding on a horse, or know someone that is, please let us know so we do not bump heads in bidding.
Please let your “fellow bidders” know the horses we are working on to avoid the same confusion.
If you see a horse drop from our list it is because it has found a private bidder. You may see horses added to the list (priority to sale authority) as space opens up.

Again, to be perfectly clear: The Sale authority Stallions are the core group list that will not change. Please do NOT bid on those horses and discourage anyone else from doing so. We have found a sanctuary situation for them so they can be as free as we can provide for them….
The core mares are also horses we are committed to providing that manufactured freedom to….
PLEASE know that all the sale authority horses are on our list as well. We will add them as safe places for them to land come forward and solidify.

  3. Make them a Picasa gallery. Keep all the ones up for adoption on the FOR ADOPTION PAGE. People can put their offers to home them right on their comments. It is a lot easier than trying to do things by numbers and having the information in a lot of places.

  4. I can't afford a horse. I worry about 0699. In some ways she'd be perfect for me. I can't ride anymore because of my neck. And she couldn't haul me around because of her knee. But that doesn't mean we couldn't be friends. I hope whoever bids on her ends up with a bestest friend. She is beautiful.

  8. I have just looked through the Calico complex horses for sale and adoption. The one thing stands out when looking at the SALE STUDS is the look of sadness on most of their faces. It just breaks my heart. I hope they all are saved and returned to the best "wild" sanctuary that can be found. I pray for all of them young and old. KA Schaaf, Ohio
