Piceance Mustangs, an advocacy group for the wild horses at the Piceance-East Douglas HMA in northwestern Colorado, has scheduled a work day for 10/27/18, according to a story posted today in the Rio Blanco Herald Times.
Volunteers work with the BLM to promote healthy horses and rangelands.
Who defines ‘healthy horses and rangelands?’ The BLM, of course. That means—wait for it—a fertility control program starting next year.
Sure would be nice if the wild horse world could move toward ‘What can we do for the horses?’ instead of ‘What can we do to the horses?’ Keeping them on the range would be a good place to start.
The HMA has an aimed-at population density of 1.25 animals per thousand acres.
