September 9, 2012 – 2012 Adoption

Yesterday was the adoption event for the horses removed during the 2012 gather. As was the case with the gather itself, I think that the adoption also went very well – Every horse was adopted. It’s hard to describe in meaningful words just how successful I thought that the 2012 gather and adoption turned out.  It was the reflection of a lot of very hard work from a number of dedicated individuals from the BLM, NPS, and other agencies and groups during the past couple of months, and we should all be very appreciative of this.

August 5, 2012 – Gather Update

I went out to Britton Springs yesterday to see how the horses were doing. There have been 34 horses and 4 foals removed. The gather is coming to a close; mountaintop gathering operations are over with. During the next week, there will be some more work done on the Dryhead to try again with some of the horses who were not able to be gathered earlier.
