West Douglas, CO Herd Removal Blocked

August 6, 2009

Some good news for a Colorado herd of wild horses: http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/20295785/detail.html

I never understood the reasons claimed to zero out this herd (and of course wrote a letter in protest along with many other folks). I’ve been to the area 3 times and only seen horses (and only a small group of 3 at that) on one of those trips. The other trips consisted of alot of horse “sign,” but no horses. I’m going to happily put this HMA back on my list of areas and horses to photograph. Many thanks to those who participated in the efforts to get this reprieve for the Colorado horses. (And thanks to Deanne Stillman for sending the news link and to Joe Camp for his excellent story of what transpired).

This little mare was so pretty. I hope she found a wonderful home during this adoption event. There was alot of interest in her.
