See "Spirit, Stallion of the Cimarron", a truthful animated production by DreamWorks setting in the 1800's...it's for adults, too.  A MUST TO SEE FOR ALL.

"Spirit" is available on DVD, VHS and has a beautiful CD musical sound track. 
                    

"Spirit" is "Bambi" of the 21st Century.

    Scandalously, today,  America's free roaming Spirits are being politically and quickly removed by BLM (Bureau of Land Management)  from their legal home ranges, our  public lands,  never to return home again.  Yet, President Bush, has commended  BLM for their management of our public lands. President Bush signed a 2004 Thanksgiving bill that "guts" the 1971 Wild Horse Protection Act allowing America's wild horses to be sent to  auction/slaughter.

"Wild Horses: Homeless on the Range"
                                            ...narrated by Stefanie Powers

Wild mustangs living on "Public" lands are being rounded up and sold at auctions to make more room for grazing sheep and cattle. The federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has created a wild horses adoption program for these horses, where they are sold only as pets, but evidence has emerged which suggests that in actuality these mustangs are being purchased by brokers who sell them overseas for human consumption.  Conservation groups such as the "Fund for Animals" are continuing to fight the BLM in court on this issue, claiming the BLM's political influences cause it to be biased towards the very animals it's designed to protect.  Can obtain this very important video thru Custom Recording & Sound at 800-288-2553 or 208-344-3535.  Remind them it was produced by Alpenglow Films and the film is for personal use only.
"El Caballo: The Wild Horse of North America" by High Plains Films.
El Caballo is a 54 minute 2001 video and a recent finalist at the International Wildlife Film Festival which has appeared on various networks world wide. Long considered an "exotic" species, wild horses occupy a sort of borderland, caught between them mythology of their origins and the reality of their plight today. This is the subject of a new documentary, by Drury Gunn Carr and Doug Hawes-Davis.  Known for their hard-hitting documentary films, Killing Coyote, Carr and Hawes-Davis approach wild horses with a lighter, albeit no less powerful touch.  The documentary opens like a Clint Eastwood film, with horses galloping across the desert against the backdrop of a waning sun. The film's basic tenet is that all equids, including horses, evolved in North America and existed here until the end of the Pleistocene Epoch 8000 years ago, when they mysteriously disappeared.  Therefore, when the Spanish explorers arrived with horses in the early 1500s they were essentially RE-introducing a NATIVE SPECIES."  High Country News The film does an impressive job of presenting, without preaching, the challenges of Old West vs. New West, open space vs. fences, things wild vs. things domestic.  El Caballo isn't a call to action.  It doesn't tell anyone what to think, and it doesn't stake out a high ground or "right" way to manage. What it does is present a little-known controversy, backed up with a diverse array of opinionated experts, and package it with a eye-candy footage that never lets your eyelids say.  Contact High Plains Films, P.O.

      Cloud: Wild Horse Stallion of the Rockies book-by Taurus Productions.  Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Ginger Kathrens -"Spirits of the Rainforest"- has spent much of the past seven years discreetly observing these extraordinary animals, and in 1995 was fortunate to witness the first hours of life of an unusual foal - a feisty colt with a striking light coat, who was destined to lead a remarkable life.  She named him Cloud.  In the ensuing years, Ms. Kathrens returned with her cameras to those Pryor Mountains of Montana, again and again, compiling an unprecedented visual history of the growth and emergence of a natural leader among wild horses.  Says Ms. Kathrens, "Cloud is one of the most compelling wild animals I've had the opportunity to film.  Covering his life on film has been a nerve wracking experience.  I'm always relieved to get back up on the mountain and find he has survived another season."   Contact Ginger Kathrens at taurusproductions@mail.com for Cloud's book.
