Sundance
Used in the illegal drug trade and abandoned, has found his forever home.


Horses are regularly stolen from local ranches and used to transport drugs to their final destination, a practice that is common in Southern Arizona. Sundance was found in the desert with over 300 lbs of marijuana on his back, he was injured, afraid and scarred for life. When Equine Voices received the call from the Department of Livestock, we knew we had to help. It took weeks for Sundance to allow us to halter him, and over three years for him to learn to trust humans again.

On Saturday December 6th, Sundance met his forever friend Walter aka Precious when Amy Pleckeitis brought her horse Walter to Equine Voices to meet his new companion. Amy was in search of a mare as a companion for Walter, and met several mares that she thought would be a good match for him, until she met Sundance. "Karen, can we try one more thing?". Amy asked, "of course", Karen said. "Can we bring Sundance out and see how they do?" Although they are both geldings, it was a match made in heaven. A little squeal, a little strike, and a forever friendship was formed right on the spot! Today, Sundance and Walter live at San Cayatano Ranch, in Tumacacori, on two acres of beautiful pasture, trees and freedom.

Thank you Amy, for giving Sundance a wonderful, forever home!


Meet Alan Day and his coauthor Lynn Wiese Sneyd in a unique equestrian setting!


He already owned and managed two ranches and needed a third about as much as he needed a permanent migraine. Alan Day was not in the market for an old ranch in South Dakota, but a persistent realtor prevailed and Day eventually became the proud owner of that 35,000-acre "sea of grass." But how could he make the ranch profitable?

An unusual opportunity soon dropped into Day's lap, and after wrangling Congressional approval, the Mustang Meadows Ranch was established as the country's first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary - the eventual home to 1500 wild horses previously considered "unadoptable" by the Bureau of Land Management.

The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs is Day's heartfelt memoir of this vast enterprise - a story replete with surprise, pleasure, plentiful frustrations and heartbreak. Day's deep connection with animals is readily apparent, as is his maverick philosophy of horse whispering.

Alan Day and his sister Sandra Day O'Connor coauthored the New York Times bestseller - Lazy B: Growing up on a Cattle Ranch in the American Southeast.


Lynn Wiese Sneyd is a published author and owner of LWS Literary Services in Tucson.

Its Official! The European Union will ban horsemeat from Mexico

Mexican_horse_meat

The official documents have been posted! Horse meat from Mexico will no longer be designated as food for human consumption. Until now, over 100,000 horses a year make the trip from the United States to Mexican slaughter houses. Do not believe the lies that all of these horses are old and sick. If they were old and sick, they would never have been used for human meat in the first place. This will not stop these slaughter houses from selling horse meat to other non-EU countries or for non-food purposes. To learn more about horse slaughter – please read our series of articles on horse slaughter by clicking here. As of January 15th, the EU will not take horse meat from Mexico. It will greatly slow down the numbers of horses crossing the border – to the point that surely some slaughter houses will close. Thanks to Equine Welfare Alliance for publishing the documents. EWA also points out more good news – the 2015 US budget does not allow for funding of horse inspections at US slaughter houses.
