The Reason We Do What We Do….
This little 6 month old boy was at Kaufman Killpen all alone, scared & unhandled. When we saw him we just couldn’t look away. We knew we had to get him out of there & fast. Once we got him out of there he spent time in quarantine & has made it home.
I had the opportunity to meet this sweet boy this past weekend where he and I formed a bond of love and trust. I am humbled by the bond I formed with him. The peace and calm I felt from bonding with him was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
I walked into his pen with another member of the rescue and he handed me his lead rope. I stood there quietly waiting for him to see that all I wanted was to love him and not hurt him. I stood next to him, waiting for him to feel the love I had for him.

In this thread 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼students @MQLinguistics @Macquarie_Uni share what they've learned so far (1st quarter of semester)

Favorite facts about #languages and #cultures in #contact
In #Arabic we say: “Footprints indicate trajectory”, but I never thought that a wheel would reveal a culture. This is how #cultures can be traced through #languages. The reading made me feel like I am solving a puzzle more than exploring languages.
Think twice before starting to learn #English, cuz you’ll end up learning even more -- #German and #French, and more …
After all, it was the Anglo-Saxons and Normans who influenced the vocabulary!!
English is a mixed #language!

Remember how we told you last week how much we hate the Slaughter Pipeline of auctions that horses are forced to endure? Horses are forced into auctions all over the country, heading south to Texas with the final destination being a trip to a kill pen or a

Do you see this poor horse? Sadly tonight, we will probably see him at the auction again.💔 He is stuck in the "slaughter pipeline," purchased by a horse trader who will continue to take him from auction to auction, exploiting him, trying to get the price he wants.😭
(*Part 1)
The first time we saw this poor boy, was at an auction over 2 months ago. He was fat and shiny and looked well cared for.❤ He did not sell, the trader wanted too much money for him.😭 Each time we see him at the auctions, his condition looks worse.😭
(*Part 2)
We would love to get him out of the pipeline of misery but we do not have $2,000 to save him.😭 This breaks our hearts seeing a once vibrant pony riding a child around in a halter, change to dull, thinner & sunburned with a chain & bar across his nose to control him💔

#VirtualDogWalk

Today’s walk was designed to avoid the BH crowds, and it paid off.

It was worth picking our way along a muddy track and crossing a stony dry stream bed.

We didn’t see anyone until we nearly got home.

Blissful!

#Battle of Kikan. The courageous #Jats & #Meds
The 3rd #Caliph was Usman ibn Affan (644–656 A.D.). Usman wanted to conquer #Sindh. He appointed Abdullah to Iraq & commanded him to send an agent to gather info about Hind & Sindh. 1/13
Abdullah deputed Hakim to acquire the desired info. Hakim reported that, “Its water is dark; its fruit is bitter and poisonous; its land is stony and its earth is selfish. A small army will soon be annihilated there and a large army will soon die of hunger.” 2/13
The 1st invasion of Sindh by land was carried out in 660 A.D. This expedition included many nobles & chiefs, & which was led by Haras, proceeded towards the mountainous region of Kikan or Kikanan unhindered. 3/13

This Saturday, Bureau of Land Mgmt's contractors will fly helicopters over the Sulphur HMA in Utah to roundup & remove approx. 600 #wildhorses. AWHC's reps will be on-site for this operation. #stoptheroundups Image
These wild horses have bloodlines dating back to the first #horses brought to North America by Spanish explorers in the early 1500s & are among just a handful of herds with strong Spanish genetics. #keepwildhorseswild Image
BLM has set a population limit of just 165-250 #wildhorses on the 267,208-acre Sulphur HMA, or as low as one horse for every 1,619 acres. The low pop limit is imposed so that livestock operators get to graze the equivalent of 1,417 cow/calf pairs & 692 sheep on part of the HMA.

Spirit, the Kiger mustang stallion who served as model for animators of @Dreamworks 2002 Oscar-nominated film #SpiritStallionoftheCimarron turned 25 on May 8. We spent months planning a birthday party to celebrate his big day and raise funds for our sanctuary... #horses 1/5

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
#vss365
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
#vss365
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

For 1 more day, your donation to RTF will do even more to keep wild horse family bands, like Chief and Shuwa's band, together.

Until Friday at 11:59 p.m. East / 8:59 p.m. West, @GlobalGiving is matching donations up to $50 at 50% at bit.ly/2WDMpn6 #horses 1/6 Image
The difference between $50 and $75 made possible by the matching campaign is the difference between treating two mares with fertility control and treating three mares ($25 covers the cost of the vaccine PZP plus adjuvant in one dart). #horses 2/6
Safe, proven and humane PZP allows us to keep stallions and mares together, providing as natural of a lifestyle as we can while responsibly managing our numbers. #horses 3/6

Join us for an afternoon of music, food, Native American song and blessings, educational presentations, ranch activities and more. Proceeds will go toward the care of the well over 500 wild horses and burros at our four sanctuary locations. bit.ly/2Tq0JxA 3/3 #horses

Happy #FoalFriday!—Meet Neptune, a colt born on Friday, Feb. 21, at our #Lompoc, Calif., headquarters sanctuary, to Juno, a member of our Hart Mountain herd. His sire is Freedom. #horses 1/6 Image
At RTF, we have used the immunocontraceptive vaccine PZP since 2000 to allow stallions and mares to live together in their family bands while curbing the rate of reproduction. We’ve done so with a 91-98% efficacy rate, so we do welcome the occasional adorable foal. #horses 2/6 Image
RTF is a proponent of the use of safe, proven and humane fertility control as a key tool to slow wild horse and burro reproduction, allowing for he phase-out of the government’s nearly 50-year-old practice of capturing and removing wild horses. #horses 3/6 Image

At RTF, we use fertility control to manage our numbers. Occasional births come as a not entirely unwelcome surprise because, well, the foals are so darn adorable. 2/6 #horses
RTF advocates for the use of safe, proven and humane fertility control to slow–not stop--wild horse reproduction, allowing for minimally invasive on-range management of wild horses and the phase-out of the government’s practice of capturing and removing wild horses. 3/6 #horses
