Antelope 2/5

Last group today of three...

18 horses taken today from Spring Valley.

We have gone into Spring Valley 3 seperate times for very few horses.

Last group run more than an hour. Three horses turned into two… and one left alone after he/she escaped. They came in beyond lathered.

Roundup was called a second day in a row by Ben Noyes and did not resume due to wind.

Last group becomes two...

Oh yeah… access was awful. Saw horses run for under ten seconds and in trap for less than five. Horses loaded directly after capture with no time to settle.

    Running for over an hour and soaking wet in the winter. What you never do to any horses… mar

    for an hour? …they look very sweaty….and one left all alone? anyone else would be arrested for that sort of treatment….it’s absurd.

    Look how drenched they are. There is no reason for pilots to be flying all day and bringing in 2, 9, 18 horses. If they are getting paid $1.2 million/30 days=$40,000 per day/2 horses=$20,000 per horse. That is just plain stupid and irresponsible. $20,000 to bring in a horse. What a scam of a program.

    And on a “good” day of 18 horses it is $2,222 to bring in a wild mustang from a range the size of Delaware that, obviously with these low numbers, is nowhere near overpopulated.
