Nobody's Horses: The Dramatic Rescue of the WIld Herd of White Sands

posted 5 years ago

Nobody’s Horses by Don Höglund DVM

In the 19th century, more than 2 million wild horses roamed freely in the American West. Today, fewer than 25,000 of these horses remain on public lands, and none may be alive in 30 years. This great American symbol of the Wild West is vanishing fast. The Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act, passed unanimously by Congress in 1971 after an unprecedented public outcry against the flagrant capturing and destroying of wild horses, declares that the horses it protects “are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West…and enrich the lives of the American People.” Since its passing, however, the act has been compromised and its protections undercut; most recently, because of an amendment proposed by Montana Senator Conrad Burns and made law in 2005, about 8,000 of the 32,000 currently in government holding pens awaiting adoption are threatened with slaughter.

Equine veterinarian and wild horse expert Dr. Don Höglund has had unparalleled experience with these charismatic—and endangered—emblems of the range and the Old West. In NOBODY’S HORSES: The Dramatic Rescue of the Wild Herd of White Sands (Free Press; September 26, 2006; $25.00), Hoglund—a scientific horse whisperer—tells the true story of the heroism, compassion, bravery, and dedication that he and his team had to draw on in their historic round-up of 1,800 wild horses from White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico—one of the most dangerous, forbidding places on earth.

Don Höglund, DVM, is a doctor of veterinary medicine educated at Colorado State University. He has provided consultation and equine training services for the Pentagon, the U.S. Army, the Walt Disney Company, Columbia/Sony Pictures and many others. As a consultant for the film industry, he acted as liaison to the animal welfare coalition for ten feature films including City Slickers, Lonesome Dove, Silverado, and Desperado.

I saw this book at the library and picked it up out of curiosity. I have always wondered what it was like to live in a place where the horses roam free and wild. Very interesting book about the rescue of these horses.

Pros: a great story about wild horses and the rescue

Cons: none
