Report from Photographer/Advocate Carol Walker at 3:-m today from Britton Springs corrals (visit Carol’s blog here)
“We are watching processing of horses – run through chutes to squeeze chute where they shave necks, freeze brand and hair sample for horse that will be adopted or sold. Dun mare reared up 5x then hooked her head and went over backwards. Then a dun colt came out of the chute backwards and was lame.
They put band stallions from the Forest Service together so Trigger, 12 and Conquistador, 19 have been fighting, vicious at times – Ginger talked to the vet about it – hoping they separate them before serious injuries occur. We are waiting to go up to the observation point for the helicopter to drive horses down.”
