Rebecca Peel: Four Corners Properties

The BLM is planning on gathering an estimated 262 wild horses from the Swasey HMA with up to 100 being released back onto the range following the gather. Approximately 49 mares will be treated with the fertility control drug Porcine Zona Pellucida (PZP-22); the remainder of the released horses will be studs. Approximately 162 excess wild horses, including wild horses gathered that are residing outside the HMA boundary, will be removed. 1

To save [them] from [an] alternative, or perhaps utter annihilation, the General Government kindly offers [them] a new home, and proposes to pay the wholeexpense of [their] removal and settlement. 2
