There seems to be none. No simple logic, jest agendas that suit the needs'n fancies'f some...mostly't the detriment'f others. Selective breedin' 'f our wild creatures that roam this Earth lacks such. Mankind seems most determined to limit the gene pool. Cuttin' off the diversity 'n all that makes 'em more resilient. Wild horses'd be one'f those such creatures. Majestic animals who've survived through centuries. They round 'em'p, slap'em 'n holdin' pens. Auction 'em off to the highest bidder, to do purty much's they wish. Many end'p 't slaughter houses - not here'n the United States, but 'cross the borders. Yepperz, Mexico 'n Canada get the "credit" fer that injustice. I could toss ya a rant longer'n the distance 'twixt 's, but instead'll share this latest government brilliance. A waste 'f taxpayer money, an injustice to the American Mustang, an injustice to all that lives'n breathes.
Roughly 67,000 wild horses roam the public lands of the western United States, and around 4,000 of them are in Oregon.  The federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) considers the current population to be more than double the healthy level for the land and h

You've got that so right @crazyhorseladycx they've already done it to our beloved pups, pretty soon there'll only be those over bred pure breeds I'd never have a use for, I've noticed that people who buy purebreds aren't asked to spay or neuter their pups .... personally I think I'd rather they spay n neuter those inbred purebreds cuz my mutts have always been the best.

@jaboUK no ma'am, i've not. 've'd some folks wishin' to have him service their mares though. 'fter seein' the mares they intended to do such with, i said a firm "no". ya can't breed bone'n brains back'n jest one foal. those backyard breeders sicken me. they give no thought to the offspring 'n the fact there's already too many horses without homes - that're good, strong'n dependable. i've only one mare outta 4 that'd be a good match fer him. i'd not breed 'em though coz they came from the same gatherin', though from diff'rent wild bands. to me, such'd be irresponsible. i've no need fer more horses, folks 'round here've a distaste fer mustangs so their future'd be most dim. the uncle though's been tellin' some big cowboy operations 'bout him. which's odd coz when i first "turned mustang", he told all they were good fer 'twas coyote bait.

@crazyhorseladycx I know how you feel, I am that way with dogs. It started when I was a child and watched my neighbor abuse his dog. When I told my mom and she called someone (maybe the animal shelter? because I don't think there was a humane society back then) and they said we had to get a picture of him doing it before they can take action. Believe it or not, for the next year I always had a camera near me when I was near to windows facing his house, but then they moved and all I could think about is that they moved into the country where no one can help those poor dogs.

Why do humans think that they have to capture wild life? Why not just let them live their lives in their own environment? We don't need to see them on display (zoos) and we don't need to capture them just so that we can break them and ride them. I say leave the wild life alone. Nature knows what it is doing a whole lot better than we do.
