At-Risk Ahtanum Ridge Horses

A few weeks ago I was on the Yakima Herald Republic site and noticed posts from someone who was trying to get media coverage for some horses that were being neglected.  On October 30, Mo and I went out and shot this video interview with Sherry Friar, who’s leading the effort to rescue the horses before the winter sets in. The horses are on tribal land and belong to a resistant landowner, so caring for and rehoming the animals becomes a complicated matter. Many people are lined up and ready to help. They are currently waiting to hear a cooperative response from tribal authorities and the landowner before they move forward. KIMA has now picked up the story, published this article on November 8th. Their coverage, though it doesn’t quite convey the immediate needs of the horses, has helped to move negotiations forward. You can follow the progress of the story on the Save the Ahtanum Horses Facebook community page.
