Little Bookcliffs Gather Over?

The roundup is complete, according to news reports, but the page with gather stats and daily reports says this:

Little_Bookcliffs_Gather_Over-1

Ninety three horses were gathered from the WHR, with forty returned and no deaths.

Body condition scores ranged from three to five, not exactly what you’d expect in an area that was overpopulated.  The problem was not lack of food.  Could it be that the forage loss was more than the public-lands ranchers were willing to tolerate?
