BLM is moving full steam ahead to send wild horses to Guyana

Straight from the Horse's Heart

This is how America’s wild horses will likely be treated in Guyana.  Do you think Guyana has sanctuaries where the wild horses will live after they’re used as work animals?  Or, do you think they’ll end up being slaughtered?  (As if this weren’t bad enough, the BLM will be sending them to an area with jaguars.)

KDCL Media is BACK!!!

I’ll be there as co-host! Having a blast!

Oro Cas Reflects

35129637_10212172488975018_6585539802395836416_nToday is a special day just like yesterday and last Sunday night. The reason the word “special” comes to mind is because Paula and I have brought something back to life from the past and it seems to function just as well today as when we put it in mothballs 3 years ago.

That something is KDCL Media, along with And Then Some Again Productions and it can mean only one thing.

The dust has been blown off of the virtual switchboard and we are producing all new Internet Radio shows again.

Today, in just over an hour, we will present our newest show called “Crypto and Then Some…” with a very special guest, Robyn Linn, along with two full hours of nothing but CRYPTO.

We will be covering Bitcoin, the Block Chain, and our experiences with it. Together with Robyn, we will be talking about a group of people…

Memorial Day Remembrance: Horses of War

by R. T. Fitch

Straight from the Horse's Heart

“Please remember to join myself and other fellow Americans in taking a moment of silence at 3 PM today in honor of all the heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live free and unfettered in the greatest country in the world, the United States of American!” ~ R.T.


From George Washington’s beloved sorrel to a little mare who braved the front lines of the Korean War, here are five unsung equine heroes.

Horses have performed multiple roles throughout military history; they’ve been used for transportation, reconnaissance missions, cavalry charges, packing supplies, and communications. And—when taught to kick, strike, and bite—they became weapons nearly as deadly as those their riders were wielding. War horses also had a potent psychological impact on men in battle—their powerful presence could boost morale and courage, or instill uncontrollable fear in enemy troops.

Though the heyday of the cavalry is over, the…

Racing’s Efforts to Grapple with Horse Slaughter not Enough, at least for now

by R.T. Fitch

Straight from the Horse's Heart

by Daniel Ross as published on The Guardian

The US racing industry has stepped up its game significantly when it comes to re-homing its retired equine athletes in recent years, but there’s still plenty of work to be done

Ginerous Legacy (Harley) saved from slaughter and adopted by Terry and R.T. Fitch ~ photo by Terry Fitch

Dina Alborano rescues ex-racehorses bound for slaughter. A savvy social media operator, the New Jersey resident drums up donations through platforms like Facebook and Twitter, then purchases and plucks horses from ‘feed lots’ – facilities, also known as ‘kill lots’, where horses are penned before going to slaughter in Mexico or Canada. Through her horse rescue organization, she then endeavors to find these horses new homes.

Alborano’s efforts have recently received support from some of the most respected jockeys, trainers, owners and journalists in the industry. Some say that she has…

Brazil Debates Fate of Millions of Idled Donkeys

by R.T. Fitch

Straight from the Horse's Heart

APODI, Brazil—The dependable donkey once did it all here in northeast Brazil, from hauling in the harvest to carrying children to remote schoolhouses. Now so many of these ubiquitous beasts of burden populate this vast swath of rural Brazil that they have become a problem—and for some, an opportunity.

Modernity and the skyrocketing sale of motorcycles have demoted the burro from its long-held status. Once cherished here for their hardy load-carrying, donkeys are increasingly seen as a nuisance as they saunter into traffic or munch greenery in people’s yards.

“Today, a donkey is born and nobody wants it,” lamented Eribaldo Nobre, 53, whose family used donkeys to lug fresh water home when he was a child. “Progress made this animal worthless.”

Enter China, where soaring demand for protein has put…
