9/15/15: The BLM Published a Record of Decision and Approved Resource Management Plan for Jarbidge Field Office, which includes managing the Saylor Creek Wild Horses as a NON-REPRODUCING Herd … FOREVER
Excerpts from their decision:
“Manage a non-reproducing herd with an appropriate management level range of 50 to 200 wild horses in the Saylor Creek Wild Horse Management Area.”
“In the Wild Horses section, two management actions … were not carried forward into the Approved RMP because they pertained to restrictions during foaling. Since the wild horse herd in the Approved RMP will be non-reproducing, there will be no foaling period.”
“In the Livestock Grazing section, allocation LG-A-1 was modified to say “The majority of the planning area will be available for livestock grazing (1,411,000 acres).”
Location: The Saylor Creek Herd Management Area (HMA) is located approximately 15 miles south of Glenns Ferry, ID in Owyhee County, ID and Elmore County, ID within the Jarbidge Field Office. The Saylor Creek HMA encompasses 94,992 acres of public land in the Jarbidge Field Office.
