Sulphur Roundup, Day 8

Gather stats through August 22:

  • Horses captured: 348
  • Goal: 600
  • Deaths: 5

Two studs were put down on August 21 due to pre-existing conditions and another horse was lost to colic.

Foals represented 18.1% of the horses captured.

Body condition scores over the last two days ranged from 3 to 5.

The forage assigned to livestock in the HMA would support an additional 855 wild horses, for a new AML of 1,105.  The stocking rate would be 4.2 animals per thousand acres, slightly lower than predicted by the Rule of 5.
