South Steens Roundup Ends

The operation concluded September 28, according to the daily reports, with 218 horses gathered, no deaths and 218 horses shipped.  A news release has not been published but at least the numbers balance.

Foals accounted for 24.3% of the horses gathered.  Mares outnumbered studs by a factor of 1.6, not exactly what you’d expect for a herd that’s 50% males, 50% females.

The goal was 200 horses gathered.  The incident occurred on private lands at the south end of the HMA.
