Plan: The BLM plans to gather approximately 783 excess wild horses, removing approximately 733 wild horses for future adoption or sale, and returning approximately 50 wild horses back onto the HMA. Approximately 25 mares will receive fertility control before being returned to the HMA. The gather is expected to last approximately 14-25 days.

Notes: Additional gather operations may take place in areas outside the HMA on public, state, and/or private lands where wild horses have moved in search of food and water. This management action is intended to prevent starvation and dehydration of wild horses due to exceptional drought that has further limited forage production and water resources

Summary: The mares and foal and one additional mare caught today were transported to the holding corrals without incident. Four additional horses (three studs and one mare) were caught and transported from a different trap today. No foals were orphaned, no horses were injured, and no hotshots were used during loading or unloading. An injured foal was also located today. The contractor captured it and, due to the injuries it had, it was determined it needed vet care. SWAT arranged for a volunteer to pick up the horse and foster it to health or have it put down after being examined by a vet.

Facility Report; Horses Received, (I question why they need to tell us the horses were received. If they shipped them, shouldn’t that be assumed that they arrived at the intended destination, or is it sometimes they don’t make it there… then where do they end up?)
