West Douglas Roundup Day 19

The incident began on July 26.  Gather stats through August 13:

The goal has been reached and gather ops have concluded.

One death occurred on Day 18 and another on Day 19, both attributed to pre-existing conditions.  The death rate climbed to 2.4%.  The summary at the gather page shows ten horses lost but the daily reports yield eleven.

Body condition scores were not reported.

Foals accounted for 19.3% of the horses gathered.  Of the adults, 42.5% were male and 57.5% were female.
