Wild horse & burro advocates, please attend if you can. All future roundups and Environmental Assessments in this BLM District will be based on this 10-15 year Resource Management Plan (RMP). Tell the BLM to make sure to use a viable herd number, 120-150 breeding age adults, for the Appropriate Mangement Level (AML) of wild horses and burros on each of the HMAs. Also, ask the BLM if they are counting the foals as part of the total number. The Carson City District Office has many wild horse Herd Management Areas, and we have put the low to high AML (from BLM statistics as of March, 2014) next to the name of the HMA, along with the number of acres in the HMA.
