Stone Cabin Roundup Ends

The incident concluded on October 26, according to a statement at the gather page, with 322 horses captured, 314 shipped and eight dead.

The removal goal was 450.

The daily reports show 296 horses shipped, with 18 unaccounted-for animals.

The death rate was 2.5%.

Foals represented 14.6% of the horses captured.  Of the adults, 47.6% were male and 52.4% were female.

The low percentage of foals suggests the population is not growing at a rate of 20% per year, a benchmark used by land managers to predict herd sizes.

The roundup, which began on September 1, was billed as an emergency.
