42 horses were brought in. Cold and partly sunny. Helicopter mechanical issues grounded chopper early. Repair work expected to continue tomorrow with flying unlikely.
A three year old stud was euthanized for club-foot (not documented or seen by public).
A young colt was roped.
Horses continue to be moved through barbed wire in the heavily fenced Little Owyhee HMA. Allotment fences line this HMA. Movement through gates is done outside public (and BLM COR) ability to observe. Reports that horses have knocked down fences have come the last three days, BLM has no concrete explanation for how the fences went down.
All youngsters brought in today were deemed of weanable age by BLM and no pairing was done at temporary.
Palomino Valley Center is now at capacity and horses loaded tomorrow will be taken from Winnemucca NV to Litchfield CA, near Susanville.
507 removed to date, target for removal 847.
