Hello Supporter, November 21, 2011
The following message is forwarded on behalf of the Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund.
Wyoming & Utah Residents
Please Organize Candlelight Vigil to Mark the 40th Anniversary of the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses & Burros Act
THE WILD FREE-ROAMING HORSES AND BURROS ACT was signed into law on December 15, 1971.
Are we going to let this 40 year anniversary fade away without shining a light on our wild horses and burros? It’s time to honor the work of Wild Horse Annie. It’s also the perfect opportunity to bring the plight of America's wild horses and burros into the public eye once again.
We are calling on all advocates to organize a candlelight vigil in the city nearest you on Thursday, December 15th. Let's all come together with a theme of “Keep their light shining.” Bring some candles, coffee, hot chocolate, and most important of all, bring your friends, family and neighbors. Whether small or large, your group can make a difference.
To date we have 20 cities in 13 states plus Canada, Sweden, and England. WYOMING AND UTAH ARE NOT REPRESENTED!!
If you're able to organize a candlelight vigil, please log onto to our Facebook page or contact [email protected]. Tell us your city and keep us updated as to how many will attend your function. “Keep Their Light Shining.”
To take a peek at the cities whose candlelight vigils are already confirmed, go to http://keeptheirlightshining.wordpress.com
Now is the time to show our solidarity and let the world know
We are here - We are united - We are not going away.

The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC) is dedicated to preserving the American wild horse in viable free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage. Supported by a coalition of over 40 organizations, its grassroots campaign seeks:
* A suspension of roundups in all but verifiable emergency situations while the entire BLM wild horse program undergoes objective and scientific review;
* Higher Appropriate Management Levels (AML) for wild horses on those rangelands designated for them;
* Implementation of in-the-wild management, which would keep wild horses on the range and save taxpayers millions annually by avoiding the mass removal and stockpiling wild horses in government holding facilities.
