 Bible Spring Wild Horse Gather

Cedar City Field Office will begin a wild horse gather at the Bible Spring Complex on or about Monday, July 28, 2014. Members of the public are welcome to view the daily gather operations once they begin, so long as the safety of the animals, staff and observers are not jeopardized and operations are not disrupted.
 
The BLM plans to gather and remove an estimated 140 wild horses from the Blawn Wash Herd Management Area (HMA), one of four HMAs that make up the Bible Spring Complex. Gather operations will also extend to the adjacent Highway 21 area, where wild horses are causing traffic hazards. It is estimated that an additional10-30 horses could be removed from public lands along Highway 21 for safety reasons.

Welcome to the Bureau of Land Management Cedar City Field Office 
The Cedar City Field Office (CCFO) is located in southwest Utah in the Great Basin region.  Characterized by vast acres of sagebrush and pinyon-juniper clad foothills, the region offers a variety of landscapes ranging from salt desert shrub flats to high mountains with riparian, aspen, and bristlecone pine communities.  Principal mountain ranges are the Minerals, the Wah Wahs, and the Indian Peak ranges.  The Field office is home to a variety of species including the greater sage grouse, the Utah prairie dog, the Southwest Desert Elk Herd, and the Sulphur Wild Horse Herd - a breed of horse noted by its distinct markings and Spanish genetics.

The Field Office is generally quite remote and offers a wide variety of dispersed recreation. The Parowan Gap, a deep, narrow gorge west of Summit, Utah, is renowned as a site of great importance to the Paiute Indians and others for many reasons, including the Fremont era petroglyphs etched on the canyon walls. The Cedar City Field Office manages approximately 2.2 million acres of public lands. In addition, the Cedar City office lends support services to other Southern Utah field offices in program areas including fire, Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation (ESR) fuels treatments and a host of other functions.
