A man who led a horse from its stall last December and killed it for its meat has been arrested and charged, according to a report posted yesterday by AP News.
In a 2018 interview on Fox News, Dave Duquette, spokesman for Protect the Harvest, a cheerleader group for the public-lands ranchers, said “There was one meat buyer…in the south of…in Florida…that said he had 2.3 million Hispanics down there that would eat it…every day if they could get it.” That video has been scrubbed from YouTube.
Just realized this monthly newspaper is now online. Based in Gardnerville, NV.
Now that the roundup is over, the daily reports have been replaced with adoption/sale information. All stallions will be gelded and mom/baby pairs are available.
Today’s InciWeb report states that the fire has spread slightly to the northeast and east over the last 24 hours, with containment holding at 14%. The total area burned is now about 161,200 acres.
Winds out of the west and southwest are expected over the next 48 hours.
Western Horse Watchers is estimating the fire to be about five miles west of Deerwood Ranch and two miles to the south. An email sent to the ranch earlier today has not been answered. The location on the following map is a best guess.
The ranch is home to 350 wild horses, according to the BLM page for off-range pastures.

A report by Wyo4News says the BLM is monitoring the situation in southeastern Wyoming and is prepared to evacuate the horses to corrals in Rock Springs if necessary.
The fire started September 17 in the Medicine Bow National Forest.
The 4700-acre Deerwood Ranch has a capacity of 350 wild horses, according to the BLM page for public off-range pastures.

He’s six months old today but his mane still hasn’t figured out which way to fall.

BLM announced today the availability of seven new off-range pastures for long-term holding of wild horses, with a combined capacity of 5,000 animals. The facilities are located in Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Washington.
The announcement may be the result of a solicitation posted in March, 2019.
A solicitation in March, 2020 was for larger facilities in Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska, 1,000 to 10,000 animals each.
The government spends around two dollars per day to warehouse a wild horse on private pastures, compared to five dollars per day in an off-range corral.
The public-lands ranchers pay the government about four and a half cents per day for the food each horse consumed.
The difference is covered by taxpayers, also known as ‘redistribution of wealth.’
Yeah it’s gross. Have not seen parasites like these in the domestic horses, only in the adopted horses. He will be six months old on October 1.
Pinpoint accuracy. Where’s Mike Rowe when you need him?
Looks like his mane will flop to his left but that doesn’t mean he’s a Biden voter.
Let’s see if he gets a mail-in ballot.

This was the scene at 8 AM today, due to smoke from wildfires. Very strange.
A heat wave has been in effect out west since September 4. Filling water buckets three times a day, compared to once a day normally. Photos taken September 7.
He’s a sweet boy and he’s so stinkin’ soft! Photo taken August 1, four months old.

Hand truck placed near hay several hours earlier but by late afternoon the elves still hadn’t unloaded it. They never showed up to clean the corrals either.
Better find a shady spot where you can ride it out until sundown.
An adopted horse escaped from its trailer earlier today and ran free for about two hours, according to a report by the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
The horse was captured in a field and placed into another trailer.
These troughs are deep enough to confine hay and grain but don’t obstruct peripheral vision. Horses can’t see directly in front of their noses, whiskers help with that.
Yeah he’s three months old, but his poop is now large enough to be scooped up with the rake. Kinda nice if you’re the one cleaning the corral. Photos taken July 3.
