Community College to Foster Jicarilla Wild Horses

Mesalands Community College of Tucumcari, NM will enter into a partnership with the Forest Service to foster Jicarilla wild horses for adoption and use them to bolster the college’s farrier and animal science programs, according to a report posted this morning by the Quay County Sun.

A rancher and board member interviewed for the story supported the idea, noting that wild horses tend to overgraze the land if their numbers grow too large, but did not indicate if his livestock compete with the horses for food and water.
