Does the End of the Checkerboard Roundup Mean the End of the Lives of Wyoming’s Wild Horses?

The largest groups of wild horses I had ever seen being driven at once by helicopter

As we drove down County Road 430 toward the Colorado border, I had a sinking feeling that we were headed toward Bitter Creek Road, where 167 wild horses have already been rounded up and removed. I was initially told that no more than 200 horses would be removed from this area, that there would still be horses there. But now, since the helicopters could fly into Adobe Town at the every southern border with Colorado as well as in Salt Wells Creek from this location, that this was why we were going here.

In fact, 236 wild horses were rounded up this day, 54 for Adobe Town and 182 from Salt Wells Creek. This stunningly beautiful area is in the shadow of Kinney Rim, one of the stunning and immense formations of hills in Adobe Town and Salt Wells Creek. Just up over the rim and about 12 miles over was Eversole Ranch.

Galloping in

I did not hear any helicopters for a long time – they had headed south toward the border, and I think they were bringing wild horses from quite a long way away.   READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE HERE.
