The herd's lineage is based in ranching and mining stock and their size and colors vary from pintos to palominos, and buckskins.

Location: The herd is located approximately 45 miles West of Cedar City, Utah, accessible via the Lund Highway.

Size: 61,862 acres

Topography/Vegetation: The complex supports multiple vegetation types including grasslands, sagebrush, sagebrush/grasslands, Pinyon/Juniper, mountain fir, and mountain fir/mountain shrub. The Pinyon/Juniper woodland type dominates the HMAs and is very dense with minimal understory forage. Open areas outside the PJ canopy are dominated by big sagebrush with Indian ricegrass, wheatgrass, bluegrass, and squirreltail grass as the primary forage species.

Wildlife: Wild horses compete with wildlife for forage, particularly big game and Utah prairie dogs.

AML:  30-60
