Our guests tonight are Shannon Windle (President) and Karen Vineis (Head Trainer and Adoption Coordinator) of the Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund in Reno, Nevada.
Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund is an all-volunteer registered 501( c )3 non-profit organization to protect and preserve the Wild Horses that settle in the foothills surrounding Hidden Valley during the winter months. For over 20 years, volunteers have monitored herd health, grazing availability, provided attention to sick and injured horses and foals, aided in state run adoption processes, and installed and mended fencing and cattle guards. Other volunteers are involved in ensuring federal and state departments are working within the statutes that provide protection and care for the Wild Horses.
This group is currently trying to find adopters for Virginia Range Horses before the horses are sent to auction, where they could potentially be purchased by “kill buyers” and sent to slaughter. Please visit the adoption link for Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund: www.wildhorseadoption.org
