Status of Allotments at Warm Springs HMA?

Most of the horses were removed in the 2018 roundup, with some of the mares destined for spay research.

Although the research was tabled, plans for returning them to the HMA were called off.

The ranchers have pretty much had the place to themselves for almost three years.

Horses from other areas, sensing the void, could have migrated into area.

The HMA intersects two grazing allotments, per Section 4a in the 2018 EA for resource enforcement actions in the HMA.

The Allotment Master report from RAS shows both in the Improve Category.

If most of the herd is gone, can the area still be considered a unique genetic resource?

In the future, will you be able to adopt a Warm Springs horse or a horse that was captured in the Warm Springs HMA?
