Daily “Gather” Update – June 26, 2012

“Effective immediately, BLM is suspending operations using paint balls to mark targeted “excess” wild horses for removal during this summer’s “bait trap gather” in the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range.
Before the paint can dry, the *horses are rubbing against each other* -and- *confusing the paint markings* among the horses.”…

ah! *such °irresponsible –Rubbing of bottoms °? !… ( & the like)?
Causing ≈≈ ConFusion♦… -&C H A O $Sindeed;
(as I noted :: ∞~by golly … ★this is those Horses’ √faults-!??°of course.?) ¢°÷≈}~
| how Dare they ♦?? |

“In 1 instance, a paint ball exploded prematurely and *marked nearby horses*. ”

BLM is “re-evaluating” how to most effectively mark horses for removal; updates will be provided here as soon as possible.

★No horses are being gathered or removed at this time.★ 😀

The color code below identifies tiers established for excess horse removal. This is based on the tiers identified in Environmental Assessment (p. 9-11). Removal TIERS


Tier One – Blue
Tier Two Higher PriorityOrange
Tier Two Lower PriorityGreen
Tier Three – Red

The wild horse is not hurt as a result of using paint balls shot from a paint ball gun. Even less than experiencing a shot at the doctor’s office or being darted with fertility control drug porcine zona pellucida (PZP), the shooter aims for the hindquarters where the animal feels a quick superficial impact to the outer layer of hide.
Photo below (on their link) shows accurately marked horse… . (ie., per BLM)

New post on Stone Cabin Wild Horses Released – Feb. 2012 by the cloud foundation: “For the hundreds & thousands that are removed FROM the wild, there are still a lucky few who are released back. The Stone Cabin Wild Horse Complex roundup in eastern Nevada removed over 600 horses from their rangelands.      Here are some of those that got the chance to go back home. Their families have been splintered, but at least they are free again. ..
Photos of both mares & stallions. All mares were treated with infertility drug PZP.
All photos taken by Elyse Gardner, who was on site for the release. U can check out her reports from the field at her Humane Observer blog here……
