Maybe they shouldn't shoot them all

  In response to Ted Williams’ article “They should shoot horses, shouldn’t they?” he is correct that wild horses should be managed appropriately on public lands.

However, here in central Idaho we have one area where mustangs have roamed for decades and are managed by BLM. I have spent years hiking and photographing these horses. They are not having significant adverse impacts on this environment and are a joy to behold. I always try to get in close, and watching these animals running wild and free is exhilarating. Occasionally, the stallion protecting a harem will charge me and put on quite a show! I hope they will always be there.
