The Cloud Foundation
The Cloud Foundation, a Colorado non-profit corporation, grew out of Emmy Award winning filmmaker, Ginger Kathrens' knowledge and fear not only for Cloud's herd, but other wild horses in the West.  "I began to realize that we were losing America's wild horses," Ginger says.  "Even Cloud and his family are in danger."  The Cloud Foundation is dedicated to preventing the extinction of Cloud's herd and preserving other wild herds on our public lands. www.TheCloudFoundation.org

American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign
The American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign is dedicated to preserving the American wild horse in viable free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage. Its grassroots efforts are supported by a coalition of over thirty organizations. www.wildhorsepreservation.org

Reporting Equine Abuse

If you suspect equine abuse or neglect, you must contact your local humane society or animal control (often through the sheriff’s department) for the county in which the horses live.  You can report anonymously, but be prepared to provide as much detail as possible (address or best directions if in a remote area; condition of horses; food/water if any, etc.). 

Be prepared to call back to follow up as many times animal control officers may not do so. 

You can also alert the State Veterinarian’s office, usually under the Department of Agriculture, in your state.

The attached article and chart can help you in understanding how a horse’s body condition is rated:  http://umaine.edu/publications/1010e/
