Diamond Roundup Day 10

Gather stats through September 19:

  • Horses captured: 856
  • Goal: 1,225
  • Deaths: 21
  • Shipped: 744

Two deaths occurred on Day 9 and three on Day 10, all due to pre-existing conditions.

The incident started on September 10.

Foals represented 19.3% of the total.  Body condition scores were not provided.

The contractor is holding 91 horses on site.  Sixty will be returned to the Complex, including 30 mares treated with contraceptives.

The herd is now less than half of its pre-gather size and well below the true AML of 1,706.  The number of excess horses in the Complex dropped to zero after Day 1.
