    Why were they taking the foal?? Hopefully it was to be sure it was with its mother, but the trailer looked empty. Please let me know.

    At the roundup of the 3 herd areas, 580 horses were rounded up, 234 released with all the released mares being treated with pzp. There were 6 deaths.

    I have been photographing the Onaqui herd for over four years now and have become very familiar (and named) every horse in the herd. I must say I am a bit puzzled as to why they have done another roundup so soon after the the late 2009 roundup. My guess is that they wanted to sterilize the mares with PZP. Sadly, there has been a shortage of newborns after the 2009 roundup and the PZP administered then.

    I totally understand the need for intelligent management of our wild horse herds to prevent overpopulation. But, why another herd reduction (from 159 down to 120 horses) so soon?

    By the way, my images of the Onaqui herd are at http://www.pbase.com/muddyboots
