Today is the 40th Anniversary of the Free Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Act , signed in 1971 by President Richard M Nixon and set up to preserve  and ensure humane treatment of all free roaming American wild horses and burros as a part of our unique American History.

I wish to remember and thank all the people who have worked tirelessly to preserve, protect, manage, educate, adopt, train, document and rescue wild American Mustang Horses. You all are very much appreciated.. And I especially remember Velma Johnston, a hero of my child hood,  who taught us all to  face the giant. Thank-you Velma.
