HORSES GALLOP INTO GRANGEVILLE
What does a farrier, film maker, Doctor and a CEO of a youth enrichment
program have in common? They are all involved with bringing the film,
Wild Horses in Winds of Change to the big screen. The film will
be shown at The Blue Fox Theater April 13 at 7:00 p.m. and April 16th
at 1:00 p.m.

walked her wild mustang ShoGun up the steps of the Department of the
Interior in Washington, DC. She was there with her mustang to meet with
government officials to propose management options for the BLM after her
work with wild horses caught the eye of then BLM director Henri Bisson
and Interior secretary, Don Glenn. The moment was caught on film and
the clip made into the hands of award winning film producer Mara LeGrand.
Wild Horses in Winds of Change is her documentary
of wild horses
and burros that are being rounded up from their free roaming life on the
range. With close to forty thousand wild horses and burros languishing
in long term warehousing, the time for solutions is critical. Experts
in the field challenge the current management system and the
non-scientific myths and biased views about the wild horse.
Despite the current crises for the horses, this film is a journey of
beauty into the meaningful presence of America’s mustangs on the earth
and in our lives. Tensions run high for their future

filmed much more than what I expected developed and what I learned is
that this story is really about all of us.”
Indeed. In a
spirit of working together Karina and Mara agreed to support the film

benefit a portion of the proceeds to Idaho’s own COLT Youth Enrichment
Program based in Kamiah.
