Diamond Roundup Day 8

Gather stats through September 17:

  • Horses captured: 708
  • Goal: 1,225
  • Deaths: 16
  • Shipped: 561

Four deaths occurred on Day 7 and four on Day 8, all due to pre-existing conditions.

Another death on Day 8 was related to the roundup (broken neck).

The incident started on September 10.

Foals represented 18.5% of the total.  Body condition scores were not provided.

The contractor is holding 131 horses on site.  Sixty will be returned to the Complex, including 30 mares treated with contraceptives.

Roundups are not a sign of too many horses, they are a sign of too many livestock.
