Trial Shade Project Moving Forward

Per UC Davis, BLM goes out every hour from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. to record the number of horses or hooves in the shade, at the feeder, at the water, or in the open. In the pens with the 2 lean-to styles, we are also recording if they are standing in the unshaded corner (corner opposite from the structures). UC Davis has inquired about doing a more formal study next summer when the temperatures will play a larger factor and the data they collect could then be analyzed and published. Stay tuned for more updates. Thank you.
