Another 27 horses were captured today, according to the gather page, bringing the total to 215. One death was reported, with 214 shipped.
The capture goal was 189 and the removal goal was 173. Plans for returning horses to the HMA were not included.
Foals represented 22.8% of the horses captured. Of the adults, 47% were males and 53% were females.
Body condition scores were not provided.
The pre-gather population was thought to be 210. Genetic viability will certainly be a problem if only 16 horses are released.
