BLM often says horses are in poor condition necessitating removals. Not so here. Horses in these pictures look good. Terrain looks good. I guess that is the reason why the BLM suggested that the Rock Creek Grazing Association sue them to initiate the removals that otherwise would not have happened.
As wild horses lose their rights to the land, so will others. Who wants to hike through a trail of cattle poo with oil and gas rigs in the background. Perhaps only Sally Jewell.
Wait a few years after cattle and other livestock use increases and see if the pictures will look the same.
