Musical Animal Crackers Anyone? Yes, I’ll Take the Horses, Please.

When willowdot21 picked “Animals” as a theme I went a little overboard for a time collecting music for all sorts of relatives.  “Buffalo Moon” goes a ways for the concept of animals in general–including a few of ‘us’.  It was getting very crowded in my blogcasa. which is not exactly suited to being an ark. So I decided to narrow things down to one particular animal—the Horse.  I figured a focus on one wonderful creature would help my sanity. It did. Even so I barely touched even the tip of the Horse iceberg.  One reason I settled on the Horse was to highlight the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in South Dakota. The videos explain things pretty well so I’m not going to say more than that you can find them on the book of faces where they post many wonderful photographs of the horses in residence.  The following is from a recent email newsletter:

Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary has received rescued Navajo Foals
     In making a public statement against horse slaughter in any form;  The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary partnered with Wild For Life Foundation’s Navajo Rescue and Recovery Mission in early October 2013.   Approximately 1,600 horses and burros were swept away from their Native homes as a result of the recent Navajo Nation roundups and were reportedly shipped for slaughter.  Many foals and other young horses were left behind to perish.  Wild for Life’s rescue efforts gathered the foals and sent out requests for help.
    The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary along with three other sanctuaries have taken the rescued foals and given them life time homes.  The three foals; two fillies and a colt arrived at their new forever home in South Dakota on October 8th.
    The goal at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary is to save lives, offer hope and grant freedom to wild horses in peril.   We hope this partnership, with Wild for Life Foundation,  will continue into the future by helping other wild foals/horses in peril.

“HORSE” /КОНЬ

Watchman at heaven’s gate, /Отвори мне, страж заоблачный,
open up the blue gates of day. /Голубые двери дня.
Midnight’s white angel /Белый ангел этой полночью
has taken my horse from me. /Моего увел коня.

I see it lashing out, /Вижу я он бьется, мечется,
going back and forth, pulling the reins. /Теребя тугой аркан,
The bright, blowing mane gleaming /И летит с него, как с месяца,
like the crescent moon. /Шерсть буланая в туман.

For God, there is no need of affluence. /Богу лишнего не надобно,
My horse bestows power and strenghth upon me. /Конь мой — мощь моя и крепь.
Neighing as if it were moaning, /Слышу я, как ржет он жалобно,
it clutches the golden chain. /Закусив златую цепь.

Gabriela | Sulphur Mustang Mare
Spirit of the Black Hills
Wild Horse Sanctuary Preservation Project (2011)

Gabriela (Sulphur Mustang Mare). Translation: Warrior of God: Her lovely black brown color reminds one of dark chocolate melting in the prairie sun. Gabriela and her mother Houlihan, a Sulphur Mustang Mare from the Sulphur Springs HMA, were donated to the Sanctuary in 2006. Gabriela was just a weanling and she hid behind her mother. Now at age 4, she has her own friends and lives bravely in a band of younger Spanish Mustang Spirits.

The Spanish Mustang Spirit of the Black Hills preservation project was begun in early in 2002. The Spanish, Sulphur, Kiger, and Sorraia Mustangs here at the Sanctuary in these herds are a direct remnant of the horses of the Golden Age of Spain, which is wholly extinct in Spain. The bloodlines are a treasure chest of genetic wealth from time long ago. These mustangs are very capable and durable mounts but have been undervalued for the last hundred years. The purpose of this project is to promote and conserve rare bloodlines that go back to the Old World Spanish and Portuguese Horses that came to the New World with the Conquistadors in search of riches. The Spanish Horses that were left behind by the explorers were worth more than the gold they had discovered. These Spanish Mustang Spirit horses forever changed the history man in the Americas.

I’ve included this Pure Nature Special about Przewalski’s Horses because it’s about an effort to restore what was lost from the wild with what was ‘saved’ in various parts of the world. It does have a great deal of music throughout it.  The footage is excellent.  I knew nothing of this effort and had never heard of Przewalski’s Horses until I saw a photograph of one at  Labellestudio’s blogcasa. Actually that’s not quite accurate because I had seen pictures of these horses as cave art. I thought they were extinct. But, then I visited Labellestudio and learned differently.  Thanks Labelle!

Yes, the Clean Water Alliance, the Black Hills Wild Horse Sandtuary and local musicians have teamed up once again to get the info out about the threat of Uranium Mining coming to the Black Hill region by –of course–a Canadian company, Powertech.  Canada–what a place–it’s the home of the Tar Sands and birthplace of Idle No More.  If you know the score it’s a chance to get refreshed. If you’re out of the intel loop, it’s time to get clued in. Because you too need water to live.

WE ARE THE LAND, Uranium Mining in the Black Hills”
A new documentary film from Christopher Crosby
Produced by PK Productions LLC and the Institute of Range and American Mustang.

ABOUT “WE ARE THE LAND” –
Governments and the uranium industry say the mining and milling of uranium provides high-paying and much-needed jobs in some of the most remote areas of the country, with manageable environmental risks. But it’s an industry that has long attracted its share of controversy.

This is a major concern for the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in western South Dakota, and other residents including environmental and conservation groups. The Sierra Club of South Dakota warns that water pollution will be a major concern if the mining company Powertech is given a permit to mine for uranium. The Sierra Club’s Black Hills Group, says there’s a high likelihood that aquifers will become polluted if an injection-well recovery system is used to mine the ore.

Powertech Inc USA has submitted its uranium mining application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and it can be viewed at the NRC website. The NRC has announced a time period for interested individuals to voice their concerns regarding the uranium mine’s impacts to the environment. This proposed uranium mine will be the first time folks can be heard under the new GEIS.

“It’s going to be my last great battle, but I’m going to win this one.” says Hyde.

The Institute of Range and American Mustang owns 13,000 acres of private land dedicated to range preservation and a balanced ecosystem. I.R.A.M.’s finest gift is The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, whose purpose is to provide not only freedom for unadoptable and unwanted wild horses, but also a research area dedicated to solving wild horse herd management that will contribute to the well-being of wild horses everywhere.
