Confusion Roundup Day 5

The incident began November 29.  Gather stats through December 3:

  • Horses captured: 207
  • Goal: 500
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 3
  • Shipped: 160

One horse died on Day 4 due to a broken neck (related to roundup) and another was put down due to emaciation (pre-existing condition).

Foals accounted for 24% of the total.  Of the captured adults, 37% were males and 63% were females.

The number of horses captured is 208 according to the gather page.  The discrepancy is probably in the November 30 figures.

Body condition scores were mostly threes and fours.

The number of unaccounted-for animals is 44.  The contractor may be holding them on site, with some, perhaps, destined for sterilization.

All horses shipped to Axtell since the last report.
