Weighing in Part 2 of Bishop’s Lodge: Is this a Resort Life for Horses?

Here are the latest photos I took today: 3/26/2018.

Again, I did not trespass to take these photos. I stayed on the rightaway and used the zoom on my camera.

I have attempted to bring attention to these horses via social media and by contacting the Santa Fe New Mexican, the Santa Fe Reporter, and the KOB Channel 4 News

Via the Bishop’s Lodge website, the lodge, and presumably the horses (they are on the Bishop’s Lodge property), are now part of the Auberge Resorts Collection. There is also an HRV Hotel Partners listed on the sign.

Also, the Bishop’s Lodge website mentions that they have/will be:

  • in an upcoming episode of ABC’s The Bachelor.
  • Has made Architectural Digest’s Top 18 New Hotels in 2018 list

I have tweeted my previous blog and included the Twitter handles and/or hashtags for Auberge Resorts, ABC Network, ABC’s The Bachelor, Architectural Digest, and HRV Partners to try to draw their attention to the plight of the Bishop’s Lodge horses. I will probably try to contact all of these groups directly (as best I can) and continue to use social media. I’m not sure if doing a petition will help, or is a valid option as well, but I am open to any suggestions.

Within the past week, I have, yet once again, contacted the New Mexico Livestock Board and enlisted the help (also again) of the Animal Protection of New Mexico, who has also reached out to the New Mexico Livestock Board as well.

I will let the horses speak for themselves, via the photographs I took today of the horses and the corral and the construction/digging etc. taking place behind and next to their corral.

  1. This is disgusting but it doesn’t really surprise me. Here in South-East Kentucky I haven’t even been able to get Child Protective Services to go investigate a family member (distant) who should be in prison for her neglect of two of her three kids. She has been turned in and the details of her crimes have been pointed out, yet 7 months after I made the call and explained the issues they have never ever even gone to check out the complaints against her. These folks say they are to short staffed and this Governor we now have with his spending cuts toward issues for the poor I don’t see these kids getting any help from the system. So, now back to horses, I love animals also but I don’t see any real help coming for them in their life time just like these kids here being thrown out into a proverbial dry pasture.

    1. That breaks my heart. Maybe contact the media and take it to social media? I’m kinda grumpy and old but I still can’t imagine doing something to hurt children and/or animals. Is there a way you can make it a custody issue? Temporarily take on the care of the kids? I don’t really know the legal side of such matters, but…


  2. I forgot to mention a moment ago, I reblogged part one of your article so I am now going to reblog part two for you. Hopefully somehow you will be able to get some help for those horses and some jail time for their owners/care takers.
