What is a Judas Horse?

A trained horse released at the trap entrance to draw the wild ones into captivity.

In this video, from the 2015 Kiger gather, the JH appears at 12:16 behind some trees, just inside the temporary fence.  He is released at 12:23, as the mustangs pass by, and they follow him into the trap.

Carrot in front, stick in the back.
