Nine additional horses were shipped later in the morning to PVC by BLM transport (4 mares and 5 foals). The reason for this shipment was one foal’s mother was inadvertently transported earlier this morning without the foal.
All transported horses have arrived safely at PVC and are on feed and water.
Fifteen horses remain at the Lahontan temporary corrals (13 studs and 2 mares). These animals will be shipped when there are enough horses (from the Buckskin range) to fill a semi trailer.
