SEPT 8 - ROUNDUP - DAY 5
Roundups are inherently dangerous events, and due to no negligence on the part of the contractor there is a high risk of death and serious injury to these wild animals. This is illustrated by a dun mare in the chute..
-Morning Star’s band came in first, then Cloud’s..
-Cloud came in reluctantly and then turned and FACED the helicopter, even taking steps back towards the range. Demonstrating his unbelievable courage and clear understanding of the trap he was about to lead his family into..
-Jackson’s band came in last but the helicopter went back for more horses and observers were asked to leave because the facility closes to the public at 5pm..
Tomorrow the helicopter will continue rounding up horses from the top of the mountain. Stallions like Baja, Starman, Mescalero, Prince, and Lakota and their bands may be driven in next...
