BLM gather and holding numbers

Provide correct, complete and factual information about wild horse roundups and subsequent holding. For example the BLM posted daily gather reports of the Calico roundup - very much appreciated. However they changed the information, meaning, the early reports indicated good body condition, then one day that was gone from those early reports, but reports of a few in poor body condition were left in.


Deaths caused by poor body condition should indicate the body condition also on the day of gather, not just on the day of death. There is otherwise no way to accurately assess the effects of the gather on the traumatized, and in this case the dead of winter impacts on horses after a long run in freezing cold and sleet, followed by days and nights in the same weather condition and state of trauma. This would, I think, be necessary for BLM and the public to determine future activities
