What do you guys think about this?

Personally, I find it ridiculous. The “wild” horse is not actually a wild native animal to North America. It is simply a feral animal that originated from escaped domestication early on during the original exploration.

They strain the native lands and stress the native species of the areas. Also, it needs to be mentioned that the horses running around now are so inbred with other horses that have simply been released that there is no way to prove that the animals are even of the original bloodlines that were first lost here.

They are a species that needs to be managed in order to prevent continuous destruction of the rangeland.

And besides all that, the groups pushing for this have no understanding of anything besides the fact that the “wild” aka feral horses are so pretty and create a majestic and whimsical idea of America. At least in my opinion.
