Confusion Roundup Day 3

The incident began November 29.  Gather stats through December 1:

  • Horses captured: 114
  • Goal: 500
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 1
  • Shipped: 81

A foal was put down on Day 2 due to injuries related to the roundup.

Foals accounted for 25% of the total.  Of the captured adults, 31% were males and 69% were females.  The number of horses gathered, based on the daily figures, is 113.

Body condition scores were mostly threes and fours.

The number of unaccounted-for animals is 31.  The contractor is probably holding them on site.

Most of the horses shipped to Axtell but one went to Delta.  Its sex was not given but it could be the first of approximately 20 mares designated for sterilization.
