Well for Fish Springs Mustangs Needs 640 Acres?

The idea of diversionary watering is not new but the purchase of one square mile to drill the well is rather novel.

The Campaign Against America’s Wild Horses wants to buy a 640 acre parcel it currently leases from the Bently Family Ranch to obtain water for seasonal ponds, according to a story posted today by The Record-Courier of Gardnerville, NV.

Presumably, the land is part of the base property that secures grazing preference to the Buckeye Allotment.

The article notes that a 2018 roundup was called off after national outcry, even though the local advocacy group is getting rid of the horses with contraceptives.
