Boots on the Road, a glimpse into the clarity of sleep deprivation

At Wild Horse Education (WHE) it is not unusual to log 80-120,000 miles in road travel each year, half of them usually off road. In order to advocate on the ground, meeting or courtroom we must have first hand information. To gather information we must go where the wild ones are. Sometimes that requires us to spend day after day going to roundups. Sometimes it requires visits to facilities. With tension increasing on the range, we need to be there.

Our information has created landmark legal wins including first amendment access issues and against inhumane treatment (the only organization to ever take this to court). The information has stopped unjustified removals. The information has assisted with adoptions and the creation of strategies for tool building on the range.

Yet this marathon is grueling. It is physically and emotionally taxing. But sometimes in those moments there is a simplistic clarity that can help you actually focus as humor often becomes a survival skill. In addition to gathering information WHE is involved in two active legal actions, multiple management discussions, legislative conversations, the second phase of humane care policy discussions and on and on and….
