Saylor Creek Mares Not Taking the Bait?

As of August 13, 78 studs, four mares and 14 foals have walked into the traps, according to the daily reports.  All wild horses on the HMA are to be captured, with 50 returned, including mares that have been treated with contraceptives.

The post-gather population will require approximately five percent of the authorized forage in the area, with the remainder assigned to privately owned livestock.

That herd, now consisting of hand-picked animals (including infertile mares, if they can catch them), will no longer be a product of natural processes.
