Gather stats through August 28:
- Horses captured: 620
- Horses returned: 46
- Deaths: 8
- Goal: 600
Two studs were put down on August 27 due to pre-existing conditions.
Foals accounted for 20.6% of the horses gathered.
Body condition scores over the last two days ranged from 4 to 5.
Some of the horses returned to the HMA may have been treated with contraceptives but no details were given.
The goal of the roundup was to gather 600 wild horses but the number to be removed was not stated. If 600 horses were gathered and 600 were returned, would the operation be considered as success?
