Diamond Roundup Day 6

Gather stats through September 15:

  • Horses captured: 499
  • Goal: 1,225
  • Deaths: 7
  • Shipped: 313

Three deaths occurred on Day 5 and one on Day 6, all due to pre-existing conditions.

The incident started on September 10.

Foals represented 18.6% of the total.  Body condition scores were not provided.

The contractor is holding 179 horses on site.  Sixty will be returned to the Complex, including 30 mares treated with contraceptives.

The herd size is now well below the true AML but the operation will continue because the government has decided to manage the area primarily for livestock.

The horses receive an estimated 12% of the authorized forage on the three HMAs affected by the roundup.
