They Had Good Homes

The Post Regster of Idaho Falls said today that the BLM will try to find good homes for 70 of the Challis wild horses when it hosts an adoption event at the Challis off-range corrals January 31 and February 1.

Gentling techniques will be demonstrated on both days, according to the story, and the adoption incentive applies.

The HMA was gathered in November, 2019.  A few weeks later, some of the captured horses were returned, in an effort to skew the sex ratio of the herd.

Like other HMAs, privately owned livestock receive four times as much forage as the horses (80/20 split).

They were forced off their home range because they were robbing too much food from the public-lands ranchers.  Sorry, but you’re not doing them any favors by adopting.
