No, because it’s too far downstream to be of any use to the horses. It can’t change the conditions that forced them off the range in the first place.
Consider this example from the North Lander Complex:
- Forage allocations before incident – 11.5% to horses, 88.5% to livestock
- Forage allocations after incident – 11.5% to horses, 88.5% to livestock
The Proposed Action in the new resource enforcement plan will make the area a nirvana for the ranchers and its rightful inhabitants will end up in off-range holding.
