Isnt it strange that the BLM, with all of its financial "problems", never seems to do anything because it would be more economical? Well, no, I guess not - considering that we, the taxpayers, always enable them to get out of any difficulty they manage to get themselves in! Spendi…

Just recently read an April article regarding this subject:
Couldn't resist commenting on an obviously incorrect statement:
"Elko County Livestock producer Preston Wright currently OWNS an allotment upon which cattle have not been grazed for 10 years"! Wrong! The grazing …

"Elko County Livestock producer Preston Wright currently owns an allotment upon which cattle have not been grazed for 10 years"! Wrong! The grazing allotments are NOT owned - but leased from the federal government! Perhaps he actually owns private land - but grazing allotments a…

As MaryBethDevlin's comment above:
Do these people understand there is a shortage of water? How can anyone with a brain realize that & just keep on with this idiocy? FOUR BILLION,EIGHT HUNDRED MILLION GALLONS for these 4 leach pads - and this is per the USGS! There are thousands…

Frankly, after watching the past few days of the YELLOW Animas River - thanks to another mine that was left after the material was removed - Seems to me expanding THIS mine really should be a no-brainer! Absolutely NOT! Just glance through the list of "potential" problems and I h…

The BLM says the herds DOUBLE (?) every 3-4 years? Tell me, how is that possible - it takes 11-12 months for a mare (MARES ALONE) to produce a foal. Their figures only jibe if each mare, stallion AND foal reproduces! Horses are unable to have litters. Why do you claim the research the a…

Wild horses remaining on the public land actually don't cost the taxpayer money! The biggest part of that $75 million/year is spent on the roundups & holding pens. I believe that there is no way that cattle would be "replaced" by the horses - there aren't that many left - com…

Exactly where are all these "inbred dam ugly" horses? Strange how there are never any pictures of them! Any horses shown in the pictures of the roundups seem to be well-fed, good looking animals. I realize the whole inbred ugly thing is what the land users (cattle & sheep co…

Chicorey commented on Horse gather concludes

So more horses added to the many already at Palomino Valley! And I guess still no shade structures added to the "general population" horses. Other than the sick horse corral. Good old BLM - still LISTENING to the public per their requests for ideas! This has gone way beyond bel…
