Another no fly day and a Diamond for Valentine’s Day

Trap location, fog never lifted off the mountain

Trap location, fog never lifted off the mountain

Today there was no roundup of wild horses at Diamond. The fog never lifted off the mountain side and in the draws where the ten “off HMA” horses were located. This area was utilized at the beginning of the operation but ten animals evaded capture. Today they remained shrouded in the “mist.” (yes… we are aware that the images were dated 2012 in error. We are tired and the “new year” for us begins March 1, the end of roundup season. We will retag, reload soon)

Yesterday all operations were cancelled due to snow and freezing rain. Two more systems are headed into the area and further delays are expected over the next three days.

At the end of the Diamond roundup yearlings are expected to be offered for adoption direct from the range. You must have your application approved to take a horse home. Information is available at this link: http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/battle_mountain_field/blm_programs/wild_horse_and_burro/Diamond_Complex/adopting.html

“Diamonds are a girls best friend” is often a phrase we hear as Valentines Day approaches. This year that phrase could have extra meaning. Maybe you will find your next Valentine among the group of yearlings that will enter the adoption?

As horses are selected we will post pictures. Below are the youngsters in the holding pens today. These little ones will be available for adoption at Palomino Valley Center north of Reno.

Help keep us in the field and the courtroom!

  1. for if indeed diamonds are a girls best friend,then mother nature and old man winter are giving us all a diamond for a few days if not just for today..meaning the area..a diamond to all of us including the horses freedom for a few more days.

  2. I wish the BLM would spend some money and effort on marketing these adoptions better, such a shame to see these wild ones ripped from their families and sent to those shameful holding pens… or worse.
