These pictures are of mustangs in the wild and then documented in the BLM corrals at Harriman UT. after the round-up.

The scars of life,,,, some on the outside and some on the inside.

The grey and the palomino paint have a scrap in the BLM trap out at Brown Spring in the west desert.

The palomino paint was the looser in the fight.

I enjoy your post as well. What becomes of these horses once they are caught like this?

About every four years the BLM rounds them up using a helicopter and a catch pen. They then turn back out a previously determined number which the area will support with feed and water. Birth Control shots are given to a lot of the mares in an effort to control numbers. The theory being fewer round-ups. In the past they would truck them to Herriman Utah to a corral managed by the BLM. In the winter the corral became really deep and the horses looked really bad. The complaining caused the BLM to move all the horses to either Delta Utah's holding corral or the prison program at Gunnison Utah.

They also truck a lot of them east and adopt them our through auctions, to anyone who will buy them. The Mustangs remain the property of the BLM for one year in an effort to keep them from being sold as meat.
