Cloud's Family

Despite the efforts of The Cloud Foundation and many wild horse advocates, the BLM round-up of Cloud's herd has begun in Lovell, Wyoming. Legal efforts are continuing, but have so far not stopped this action. A Temporary Restraining Order request by The Cloud Foundation and Front Range Equine Rescue was denied in Federal District Court on September 2. The BLM has commenced the round-up - expected to take 4-10 days - which is being done by driving the herd into pens via helicopters.
The Today Show's Kerry Sanders filed a report which aired on this morning's show. To watch, please click on the link below:

This sad news comes just two months before the third installation of Ginger's series is set to air on PBS. Cloud: Challenge of the Stallions, part of PBS' NATURE Series, is slated to air on October 25. By the time the show airs, at least 70 horses - possibly including Cloud and his band - will have been removed from rangelands that have supported them for more than 200 years.
We have added our voice to those who do not support this round-up. If you would like to learn more and learn how you can help, please visit:
Thank you.
