Links for young readers

9 02 2010

Young people are our promise and hope for the future, across many spectrums, and their role in preserving our nation’s wild horses is no different. It was the wild support of school children, led by Wild Horse Annie’s charge, that led to the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Wild Horse and Burro Act.

Several online sites have kid-specific resources, and photographer Pam Nickoles has compiled a list of links for children and teenagers to learn more about wild horses: http://nickolesphotography.wordpress.com/2009/12/12/children-and-our-wild-horses/

And one young reader of this blog – Rochlia – is involved in an online Girls Horse Club. It’s a great resource for horse-crazy girls (like, I dare say, many of still are!) to read and write and share information about horses. They’re gearing up for “March for Wild Horses,” to learn even more about our American mustangs.

From their blog: “Beginning March 1st 2010, Girls Horse Club will host March for Wild Horses here at our virtual barn. The intent is to use our collective, creative voice to speak out for the rights of wild and feral horses on public lands, and show our support for the individuals and organizations who are their loving protectors. Throughout the month we’ll publish stories, essays, poems, and artwork created by horse girls, inspired by wild horses.”

If you’re a young reader – or young at heart – check out the link to learn more! Young folks saved this country’s wild horses once … they’ll continue to do so!

Rochlia, you’re learning that’s who TJ is. Generous, thoughtful and all about the horses – sharing information and her life with the horses of Spring Creek. We’re lucky she’s there for them and I’m proud to call her my friend.
