Woo-Hoo Wednesday!

Can you bear two horse-related posts in as many days? I sure hope so, because I have wonderful news:

Yesterday, I posted about the Burr-Tillis amendment, regarding the herd size of the Corolla Wild Horses .  It went before the Senate yesterday…..and…..

It PASSED!

This is such a good thing for the horses. It means that the herd size will now be mandated to be not fewer than 110, and possibly as many as  120 to 130. A herd of this size means more blood lines and less chance for genetic problems for the horses.

As I said yesterday, politics is a subject I know very little about, so I have no idea how this bill came to pass after it had stalled in the Senate in the past. And that’s not important; what matters is that it did.

Here’s the link to a funny moment during the vote.

(I’ve researched, but haven’t yet been able to learn which Senator provided that little bit of humor.)

For those of you who called your Senators, thank you.  Whether or not our calls made any difference, we may never know.  And that’s okay.

This has been the hope of the folks at the Corolla Wild Horse Fund for quite some time. I’m happy for all of them, and I’m delighted for “my” wild horses.

  1. Hallelujah! It passed! I’m so happy for the horses!

  2. Excellent news…….”power to the people” ! I had a feeling there were enough people in high places on the side of the herd that they would be safe but you never know….politics is something I stay out of too but occasionally those in office do the right thing (!!!!!!).

  3. Happy day indeed! Extra carrots and apples at the rescue sanctuary! Good things do happen to good horses who wait!

  4. lol what a fun moment during the vote. I suspect a bit of comic relief is something they’re not familiar with often.
    Congratulations for the horses on the passing of the bill.
    I pray the horses flourish and thrive for many decades to come.
    I love your wild horses postings, you can never do to many in a row as far as I’m concerned.
    Again congratulations to the beauties. 🙂

  5. YAY!!! They should be saved. Comic relief in Congress – now that’s a novel idea.

  6. That’s wonderful news, Dianna! Thank you so much for sharing. Your photograph is stunning.

    & it appears that the senator had to stop herself from really letting go with that laugh ! Good stuff ….

  8. Yay! So happy for “your” horses! Good for the horses and good for us… more horses for you to click and share pictures!
