What is an Excess Horse?

The current population at Saylor Creek is 131 wild horses.  The AML is 50.  How many excess horses are present?  The herd is 2.6 times over AML.

There are 81 excess horses on the HMA, per current wisdom.  It’s overpopulated.

The herd requires 13% of the authorized forage on the HMA but you’re not supposed to know that.  When the roundup ends, the horses will only need about 5%.
