see the new Wild Caballa Video!! click on the HOME page, then read about it here later

 Folks, these magnificent creatures are diminishing in numbers in some areas of British Columbia and Alberta.

 

See these websites we have been working in conjunction with on our Wild Caballo song:

Chilcotin Wild Horse Sanctuary

Xeni Gwet'in First Nation

The Pryor range in Montana is doing their best also to protect these wild Spanish origin bands from being destroyed.  They are having better luck with the Government than Canada is.

you can see all about it here:

The Montana website
http://www.pryormustangs.org

There is also a wonderful website really helping:

http://www.wildhorsepreservation.org/

it's called the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign

and it is gaining alot of attention.  It is very compelling.  Beautiful heart wrenching horse pictures and info etc.  It's getting late for them..

as for our project with the Wild Caballo , we have currently placed as a finalist in the International Wildlife Film festival video/song category.

Chas Williams has lent his musical mastery and vision to produce this song simplistically to perfection, and played most of the instruments.  The expressive bursts of beauty that is his dobro work,  is matchless in the music world today. You can find Chas at

There is an extroardinary woman; Sandy Elmore, who camps at the Pryor range and videos these beauties in their natural habitat ..she studies their histories, adopts them, and sorrows when she returns to see another one gone. (see Sandy's Emails page and also her blog is here):

Hers is the stunning  footage behind Ian Tyson's Legendary "La Primera" video.


Sandy Elmore's video work can be seen here
(wait till you see these horses..you wont believe it..)

Her and I, Randy Nagel, and Chas Williams have collaborated in bringing you the "Wild Caballa" video.  It will stir your hearts and make you proud to have been a part of the history of these; our kindred spirit animal companions.  Now, is a good time  to do something for them.  They have been our war horses, our  tools for survival, our friends, our very symbols of freedom.

Randy Nagel helped me write the song "Wild Caballo".  Without him i never would have known of the Pryor range, or the Brittany Triangle, and the valleys in BC and Alberta that nurture the remaining wild families of these animals. 

Randy was a working cowboy at the iconic Douglas Lake ranch, and worked with frontier Canadian cowboys like Slim Haugen.  He has done much research into the bloodlines of these herds, as has video producer and Montana rancher Sandy Elmore (mentioned above).

(see Sandy's Emails page)

Not so long ago, these horses were rounded up in Wildhorse Canyon and shot, and have been in other places too.  But these animals help in the ecological system.  For one thing, deer, who are a mainstay meat source for northern people, are able to stay alive by using these horse herds for refuge, and fleeing to the inner safety of the herd when being persued by preditors.  Also the horses are a mighty force, breaking the hard crust of snow in the winter to leave tender shoots exposed for various other animals who would otherwise perish. 

What have we done as a people ..bringing these noble creatures here to this unforgiving territory, making them work for us, then punishing them for having the fortitude to survive, and abandoning the mighty bloodline that has evolved within them? 

Come on..lets re-think this ..there has to be a way to support these societies through their web services. They are equipped with the knowlege base to approach the debates and problems in constructive ways.  Surely we can come up with ways of preserving the lives of these dear ones; this way of life especially. 

It says in scripture; God took a handful of the southwind, and from it formed a horse,

calling them "drinkers of the wind".

God said  "I establish thee a glory of the earth. 

I give to thee flight without wings".


When this song and video are made available, please pass it on.  Spread it around. Visit these websites, give them some good energy.  Donate a few bucks once in awhile.  Surely they get down hearted and overwhelmed at times with such a load to shoulder;  A load that is ironically part and parcel of doing the right thing in a world that doesn't plainly paint the way sometimes.

 

Maybe Tim McGraw, or Garth Brooks, maybe  Neil Young, Gordy Lightfoot..David Foster even..would come up with ideas how to artistically further this cause.


Listen to the song.  it is under this page as an mp3 subtitle.

Blessings.
