To all of my dear friends and fellow “wild ones” lovers,
Tonight there is definately “room at the Inn.” Only a handful of travelers light the windows of this roadside motel.
The night is clear and cold.
Callaghan was completed on the 22nd and horses were released or transported. Ravenswood and Eagle begin at the New Year.
I went out today to search for horses in an area awaiting a pending roundup and saw no horses, nor horse sign. I saw hawks, coyotes, sheep and cattle. I saw mining trucks and fencelines. I saw no horses. I will go back tomorrow.
Hold your loved ones close tonight and count your blessings.
Merry Christmas to you all.
Callaghan Holding 12-20
Bald Mountain Video
First leg of the Callaghan Complex. Trap, treat (PZP-22) and release. About 400 will be removed, about 1000 rounded up. For the entire Complex (Bald Mountain, Callaghan, New Pass/ Ravenswood) will be aprox. 875 left on the range. Battle Mountain District may have more mining than any other district and a lot of grazing interests.
Counties Eureka, Lander, Nye….
(video is labeled “2011″ because it is on trhe fiscal 2011 schedule. I think geography in terms of HMA’s and time by thr roundup schedule….)
This roundup is in an interesting geographical location. LOTS of allotment fencing and LOTS of mining…. but they didn’t fly this am.
