Swasey Progress Report Day 2

The daily reports indicate 253 wild horses captured as of July 16, with none returned to their home range and no deaths.

Body condition scores ranged from three to five(!) with a few twos.

Not exactly what you’d expect for an area that’s grossly overpopulated.

The fives tell the story: The horses are robbing too much forage from the poor ranchers.

The management plan for the HMA assigns six times more forage to privately owned livestock than horses.
