Haha - talk about reaching.....anything in there about Cheatgrass DNA? No.

The really funny part is - these animals are nowhere near needing "assistance" or "preservation". They breed faster than the BLM can contrive to get rid of them without howls of anguish. Think of the feral horse as a really, really large rodent.

Good restraint, truchas!

I have to agree with a lot of ScottyS' comments... I just try a lighter touch.

Why do you hate horse copulation? :wink:


Heh, I'd encourage it if they'd let us eat 'em. Horse meat is good.
