  1. Anyone whose interested in science fact about wild horses, versus fiction? Here is an article written by a rancher who studies wild horses:

    WHY!? Colorado has way too many re-introduced horses as it is straining the state’s fragile ecosystem. There are already more than 1,000 “wild” horses in Colorado than the ecosystem can sufficiently sustain (https://www.blm.gov/programs/wild-horse-and-burro/about/data/population-estimates). I work for the BLM, and I’ve seen firsthand the harm that wild horses impose upon the limited riparian areas, as well as driving off native ungulates, found in the arid West.

  3. Yes, we need more over grazing and trampling on our arid landscape
