Stinkingwater Roundup Day 7

The incident began on August 15.  Gather stats through August 21:

  • Horses captured: 401, up from 364 on Day 5
  • Average take: 57.3 horses per day
  • Capture goal: 420
  • Removal goal: 390
  • Returned: 0
  • Deaths: 3, up from 2 on Day 5
  • Shipped: 398, up from 362 on Day 5

Western Horse Watchers misread the report for August 19: It said gather operations ended early, not that they were over.  The final day was August 21.

A stallion was put down on Day 6 due to blindness, lifting the death rate to 0.7%.

Foals accounted for 25.7% of the horses gathered.  Of the adults, 44.6% were male and 55.4% were female.

Body condition scores were fours and fives.

Day 7 ended with no unaccounted-for animals.

Other statistics:

  • AML: 80
  • Forage assigned to horses: 960 AUMs per year
  • Pre-gather population: 449
  • Forage liberated to date: 4,812 AUMs per year
  • Water liberated to date: 4,010 gallons per day
  • Forage assigned to livestock: 8,455 AUMs per year (estimated)
