Cumulative totals through 02-18-20, per the BLM roundup page for the Eagle Complex:
- 1,536 animals gathered
- 17 deaths (1.1%)
- 687 studs (44.9%)
- 844 mares (55.1%)
- 5 new foals (2019 foals counted as adults)
A 20 year old mare was put down on day 34 due to injuries sustained during sorting.
The proportions of mares and studs are still outside of statistical limits corresponding to n = 1,531 and p-bar = .50. If the herd is growing at a rate of 20% per year, where are the little ones? Coming soon to Palomino Valley?
The thriving ecological balance is now only 64 wild horses away.
