Morning Star’s band rounded up
Morning Star’s band on their way to water 6-2009
The helicopter didn’t go out until later in the morning today and they have brought only Morning Star’s band down the mountain so far but the helicopter has gone back up for more. None of Morning Star’s family are to be removed. They ran these horses 10 miles down the reason in order to give the mares (Audobon b. 2000 who was given PZP as a young mare and then foaled for the first and only time out-of-season in Sept. 2007 due we believe to the PZP; Felina, a red dun mare; and Gaelic Princess, a beautiful three-year-old grulla daughter of Electra*). It costs $7000- $8000 to hire the roundup crew each day, regardless of the number of horses that they bring in and that it costs $275/dose of the 2-year PZP drug which can not be delivered via field dart.
*Electra, Cloud’s 12 year old sister, is slated for removal. In a double tragedy, this would leave her band stallion, Prince, alone.
