One of the stock tanks on the Virginia Range is now on float control, with a temporary water supply. The horses empty them in a few days when filled manually. They are on private property, elevation 6500 ft. Hopefully the horses won’t pull the hoses apart.
These are the tanks that appear in the trailcam photos posted from time to time on these pages. Yes, it is illegal to feed wild horses in Nevada but not to water them.
The idea is to keep the horses up in the hills and away from problems in suburbia, a practice known as ‘diversionary watering.’
