Mustang Meg Checks on Oregon Wild Horses

Refer to this summary of her trip to the Palomino Butte, Stinkingwater, Kiger, Warm Springs and South Steens HMAs.  She reports that the horses looked good with a few exceptions and that water sources were low, typical for this time of year.  She noted that Warm Springs looked ‘ominously empty,’ as if it was a ‘ghost town.’

Not exactly what you’d expect to hear about areas that are overpopulated with wild horses, a claim repeated frequently by the BLM and public-lands ranchers.
