    So all mares are treated? Isn’t that excessive? And are none of the foals released?

  2. LisaG. says:

    Much better vantage point here vs the Bald Mountain observation point in yesterday’s video. Did someone have a change of heart?

    Great going, Laura. I know it’s bitterly cold. Take care of yourself too!

    funny; the website blm page i read said they plan to “remove 221…mostly weanilings and foals….

    does anyone else besides me see what this means?

    this means the blm ‘s war on mustangs has accelerated to:

    Having a war on weanlings and foals; :”many will perish !

  5. Anna says:

    correction: the removing of the 221 weanlings and foals was from another roundup; i think the previous roundup; this roundup says: source blm website:

    1.0 Purpose and Need for the Proposed Action
    1.1 Introduction
    The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is proposing to gather approximately 250 wild horses from the Sulphur Herd Management Area (HMA) beginning on or after December, 6, 2010. The gather is being done in an attempt to slow population growth by treating captured mares with fertility control vaccine PZP-22 (Porcine Zona Pellucida). It is anticipated that this treatment would help maintain population size within the appropriate management level (AML) longer, thereby extending the amount time between gathers necessary to remove excess wild horses.
    A majority of all wild horses captured (approximately 220 animals) would be released back to the range following the gather. Of these, about 90 would be mares vaccinated with PZP-22, with the remainder of the release horses being stallions.
    Approximately 30 excess wild horses or up to 15% of those animals gathered, mostly weaned foals or young yearlings, and any wild horses residing outside the HMA boundary would be removed from the area and placed into the BLM‟s adoption program or into long-term pastures. This removal would help facilitate the goal of extending the time before another gather is needed, and maintain population size within the established AML while avoiding the deterioration of the range that can result from wild horse overpopulation. Weaned foals or young yearling horses are being targeted for removal specifically to help avoid any post gather concerns of animals becoming orphaned following the capture event.

    BLM SAYS: “Weaned Foals or young yearling…are being targeted….specifically…to help avoid animals…orphaned…

    QUESTION: HOW IS REMOVING “30 EXCESS WILD FOALS AND YEARLINGS (are being targeted specifically blm quote

    HOW IS THAT GONNA STOP MUSTANG ORPHANED…

    no you idiotic BLM BUMBLING FOOLS…

    TARGETING FOALS AND YEARLING INCREASES FOAL AND YEARLING ORPHANS

    BECAUSE YOU SEPARATE THE FOALS FROM MUM’S MILK !

    SO HOW ARE YOU THE BLATANT LYING MORONS

    HOW ARE YOU GONNA FEED 30 EXCESS FOALS

    (+PLUS 221 OTHER EXCESS FOALS FROM PREVIOUS ROUNDUP

    HOW IS THE BLM GONNA FEED 251 EXCESS FOALS/ YEARLINGS

    WHEN THEY COULDN’T EVEN FEED THE ONES THEY HAVE?

    AND “FEATHERS; HOPE; LIL ONEDAY; ALL PERISHED !

    THEY COULDN’T EVEN FEED THOSE THREE

    NEVER MIND TRYING TO FEED 251 FOALS + YEARLINGS

    COULD YOU IMAGINE THE HORROR THESE FOALS WILL FEEL

    WHEN THEY SEE THEIR MARES AND STALLIONS BEING RELEASED

    WITH THE FOALS AND YEARLINGS LEFT CAPTURED IN PENS

    THIS IS A TRAGEDY A TRUE AMERICAN TRADEGY; IMHO AW

    key line: BLM WROTE 2010:

    Weaned foals or young yearling horses are being targeted for removal specifically to help avoid any post gather concerns of animals becoming orphaned following the capture event.

    comment: wrong; this will cause countless mustang orphan

    • Laura Leigh says:

      Interesting that the website page you found gives that info.
      I was told that the removal of the youngsters was because they are easiest to adopt out… this area actually has a high adoptability.

    Indian Lakes Road Facility Weekly Updates

    ‘the blm ended their “mustang count at 113…

    then they began a new Mustang count around August 2010
    my calculations are: about 120 mustangs have Perished

    IN THE CORRALS AFTER THE ROUNDUPS IN ONE CORRAL

    since Dec. 2009; CALCULATION; 1 MUSTANG BITES THE DUST EVERY THREE DAYS @ CALICO CONCENTRATION camp; every 3rd day another mustang bites the dust Calico

    imo summary: Calico Complex is far from over! must close
