Day 4: 47 wild horses were captured today. This brings the total to 314.
Most of the wild horses being removed have already shipped from the range to Palomino Valley Center north of Reno (140 have shipped). Post operation we will update you on the horses (including multiple newborns) shipped to the facility.
The remaining mares will be treated with fertility control. All release horses will be catalogued and tested for genetics. Data collection will begin shortly after release and we will update you on progress.
An adoption event is planned after conclusion of operations. On February 28th at the Fire Station in Eureka 15 weanlings and yearlings will be offered for adoption. All regular BLM adoption requirements apply. For information http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/battle_mountain_field/blm_programs/wild_horse_and_burro/Fish_Creek_Wild_Horse_Gather/adopting.html
We will be publishing a “booklet” shortly on Fish Creek. Information about the HMA, the wild horses that live there, the roundup operation and a “catalog” of adoptable horses. Many of the adoption horses are in the slideshow below. Several of these horses we knew from the range. We will publish the catalog shortly.
We will continue to post as we can. There are always several technical difficulties on the road and they are being addressed.
