Brushy Creek Resort and Lodge

Brushy Creek Resort and Lodge

Located just 45 miles from Rolla, MO and nestled in the Ozark Mountains is Brushy Creek Lodge.  This location sports 3 rental cabins, a rental teepee,  and number of campsites.  While the cabins are not fancy, they are clean and maintained.  On some weekends, food is provided in the main lodge for a moderate cost.  The food is mostly hard-fried with a salad bar.  If you can’t eat heavy while riding, be prepared to bring your own meals.

Known Kill Buyer Caught Hauling 47 Wild Horses to Slaughter in Mexico

It has been speculated since the early 90’s that extensive mustang trafficking has occured.  The BLM’s closed book policy served to enhance this.  Horses to Slaughter, Anatomy of a Cover-up within the Wild Horse and Burro Program within the Bureau of Land Management was published in 1997.

While groups have been fighting the BLM for decades, it took just under 15 years for the feds to catch the first slaughter truck.  An excellent article was published in horseback magazine. Whether you are a horse person or not, I encourage you to read it in its entirety.  This is an example of a lot of untracked federal money and property dissapearing.  Are there other sieves out there?
