Hot, wet, help

This is a hot horse.

So she got hosed.

She got nice and wet. That had to have felt really good.

She is Foxy.
No, really: Her name is Foxy.

Told you so.

Quick recap: Horses are hot. Help them by cooling them off OR help wild ones in the Nevada and California deserts from dying of dehydration-related conditions because of being rounded up by the BLM.

Call for a wild-horse roundup moratorium, because two dozen horses have already perished, and "to gather at this date is inhumane and directly contradictory to provisions of the Free Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Act of 1971" according to Laura Leigh of the Cloud Foundation. She filed a temporary restraining order on July 23 to halt the roundup. Her attorney, Gordon Cowan, said, "To prevent the public and press from observing the government in action on public lands is shameful." Hear, hear!

Here's who to tell to stop the lame-o roundup:
The White House, (202) 456-1111.
Robert Abbe, BLM director, (202) 208-3801,
Ken Salazar, Department of the Interior, 1849 C Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20240
(202) 208-3100,

Another way to help amazing equines, specifically Foxy and her pasture mates, is by sponsoring her (or another hot animal at her farm) for $10 a month, because helping beautiful animals is awesome: I'll be sharing additional pics of grossfaces from this little sanctuary later, as well as other outlets to help more grossfaces.
