Say NO to Sterilization!

How you can help Idaho’s Saylor Creek Mustangs

Take Action!


Sterilization of mares and stallions is the beginning of the end for wild horse families if we don’t say NO as loudly and collectively as we can. The BLM plan calls for treating “all wild horses surgically or chemically to eliminate reproduction capability,” in Idaho’s colorful Saylor Creek Wild Horse Herd.

The BLM then plans to dump other castrated stallions and spayed mares into Saylor as the Saylor geldings and mares die off. They have announced plans to call the area a wild horse “sanctuary.” Read the article here.

“Viewing sterilized wild horses in this so-called ‘sanctuary’ would be the equivalent of watching domestic horses in a wild setting,” states Ginger Kathrens, the Emmy award-winning filmmaker who brought the complex behaviors and wondrous world of wild horses into our living rooms with her Cloud documentaries for PBS’s Nature Series. “If BLM is allowed to get away with this blatant betrayal of the Wild Horse and Burro Act, it will trigger a domino effect with other wild horses literally falling under the knife.”

In 2011 BLM recommended partial or complete sterilization for the popular White Mountain Wild Horse Herd on the outskirts of Rock Springs, Wyoming, a plan that is bound to be resurrected if the Saylor Herd is sterilized.

The Cloud Foundation is fully committed to fighting permanent sterilization of wild free-roaming horses. We endorse the use of the safe and reversible fertility control vaccine, PZP, to manage wild horses “on the range.” Sterilization will set a deadly precedent for all our wild horse and burro herds in the West.
