Wildfire Reported at Sand Wash Basin HMA

About 200 acres have burned, according to a story posted today by The Denver Post, but it has not harmed any horses and they are still able to access water normally.  However, volunteers are concerned that the fire has consumed forage in an area already suffering from drought.

Personnel from Wild Horse Warriors have been hauling water to the Sand Wash horses since July, avoiding an emergency gather.  The HMA covers 157,730 acres in northwest Colorado.
