Today saw 11 horses removed from the range to make a two day total of 33.
Horses were run into the trap and directly sorted into temporary. We usually do not have the ability to see the sexes of each group coming off the range as horses are captured and then sent in groups for sorting at temporary.The glare from the sun made the first group of 3 adults and one youngster hard to see.
Second group was two mature studs a mare and foal.
Third group a dry mare, wet mare and foal.
I will review tapes after I get sleep (two hours last night) but it appears the first group was much larger than four members before it hit the trap.
Do you think Sun J could possibly be repeating the same “crop dusting” patterns that broke apart bands at Antelope last winter? So far the we have every indication that the same type of flying is happening.
Will evaluate further tomorrow.
I will get video and real report out asap.
Literally am so tired I can’t see straight.
