Onaqui Mountain Roundup Ends with No News Release?

The gather ended on 09-19-19, according to the daily reports, with 241 excess horses removed from their home range.  Two deaths were reported (0.8%) and no animals were returned to the HMA.

Most of the body condition scores were fours and fives, not exactly what you’d expect for a herd that’s overpopulated.  A more plausible explanation is that they were robbing too much forage from the public-lands ranchers—on territory set aside for them.
