Meeker Mustang Makeover Rejects Sand Wash Horses

A story dated April 27 by Steamboat Pilot & Today said horses removed from the HMA and held at Cañon City will not be delivered to trainers due to the unidentified illness that’s killed 85 over the last five days.

Horses from other areas will arrive at the Rio Blanco County Fairgrounds today.

Western Horse Watchers suspects that all of the animals at the facility are now unadoptable and may be viewed as a health risk no matter where they’re sent.

The annual training event is organized and operated by ranching interests.
