Madeleine Pickens Is Buying a Million Acres to Create a Wild Horse Sanctuary

Madeleine Pickens, wife of Texas oilman (and OSU benefactor) T. Boone Pickens, has begun negotiations to purchase one million acres of land in order to create a sanctuary for wild horses currently being held in holding pens by the BLM (the Bureau of Land Management).

According to a recent ABC News article, 33,000 horses are currently being maintained at a cost of $1,500 a year per head by the U.S. government.

It will be another year before the mustang preserve is ready, and so the Bush administration is seeking $20 million in the interim to protect the horses until the ranch is ready.

God bless you, Madeleine Pickens!  Horse lovers everywhere are grateful.

Wow - the state of Texas is very lucky to have such a generous and caring resident!  I applaud Mrs. Pickens for what she is doing to help those horses.
