    Digging through some geology photos taken a couple years ago I ran across these. The nikon 990 didn't do 'em justiice. Hope I saved them at least good enough for web documentation. Comments?

    I know they're not cutsie or wearing little horsie clothes but, anything?-

    They're getting rare out here in the desert. The Bureau of Land Management and National Park Service are going through special effort to track them down and exterminate them.

    Why would they want to do that? Are wild horses that much of a threat?

    I really like #1.

    Thanks Spacenut, AUZambo and Tangerini. Lookslike #1 is what I'll run with.

    They're part of the problem regarding the destruction of habitat. Burros are the worst of what can be controlled. There have been horror stories of shooting them from helicopters and running them to death. They do try to adopt them out and have even relocated some to Nevada. From what I saw a few days ago, cattle are messing up springs and tend to overgraze. However, cattle are owned by ranchers and they still claim grazing rights over large portions of the reserve. Very controversial.

    Out of the five that were in the group, the two shown here ended up becoming very aggressive toward my friend's truck. At first I thought they were escapees from a ranch, but none of them had been shoed.
