It sounds like the BLM has not been following up on adoptions as well as they should be. I seem to remember the adopters were required to keep the horse for a certain amount of a time (a year maybe) to prevent just what Donna is talking about, as apparently there is a profit in buying them for pennies from the BLM then hauling them to Mexico and selling them for meat. But the BLM doesn't always follow through and check on the horse months later. This new sanctuary will certainly help, and I assume they are planning on making some efforts towards sterilization to keep populations manageable.

No, sure hope not, sounds horrible.

yeah but did you read the article about how they were rounding them up illegally and selling them for meat at the autions?
