Enjoy Them from a Distance

A BLM news release issued yesterday reminds horse watchers to keep a safe distance when viewing or filming them on the range.  One hundred yards is the minimum recommended distance.  (Individuals equipped with PZP dart guns who are aiding in the extermination of these animals will need to get within 25 to 40 yards for accurate shot placement.)

The announcement also suggested that you move back if they approach, which is how you tell them you’re lower in the pecking order.  Next to hand-feeding, it’s one of the best ways to make a horse pushy and disrespectful.
