Our guest is KAREN SUSSMAN, who has served as president of the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB), the oldest wild horse and burro organization in the United States, since 1989.   She follows in the footsteps of her predecessors, Helen Reilly and Wild Horse Annie, Velma Johnston.  ISPMB currently resides on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation near Eagle Butte, South Dakota, where Ms. Sussman manages four wild horse herds.

ISPMB recently completed a 15 year observation and study of these four wild horse herds, and the data indicates that the White Sands herd did not double in size until the 14th year.  (The Bureau of Land Management claims herd size doubles every 4 years.)
