Don August 15, 2017 at 8:24 pm In Nevada, we have, by definition, wild horses and burros as defined by the 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Act that refers to them in that manner. We also have “wild” horses, not covered under the federal act since they were not living on traditional home ranges when the act was passed. Regardless of how you view horses relative to wildlife standards, they are icons of the West. As long as we glorify ranchers and cowboys and cows, that’s as long as we should do the same for “wild” horses. Comments are closed.
