    There's usually hundreds there waiting to be adopted. I really don't recommend it though because anything older than a few months needs years of training to overcome the effects of fight or flight.
    No wild horse is in a corral. That's what " wild" means.

    No contact with humans.

    Heh. They only need to worry about that in Australia, where everyone is upside down.

    You have no idea the efforts they go to, to manage them. Just your fantasies nurtured by orgs that want your donations.

    45,000 have been rounded up and are kept in pens.

    You want to save wild park land then you have to deal with over population of horses, Burros, and deer (though hunting keeps deer in check somewhat). We had a former Mustang stored in our back field with the quarter horses and the Mustang would have been OK for a therapy animal for an adult but probably not kids unless she was older. But then an ungelded Arabian would have been more dangerous, on average, for any adult but a trained one. A horse is after all bred but not domesticated like a dog, which is not entirely predictable either.

    Then there are no true wild horses. Your problem has been solved and you can send your donations somewhere else.

    Well, this is why I said they need to carefully model this on a supercomputer: We don't really know what, exactly, would happen if a comet impacted on an ice sheet. Lots of sudden melting, to be sure.......

    Feral hogs are injuring humans in the Deep South. Many scientists think it's too late to turn the clock back.

    Florida is likewise afflicted with pythons, exploding population, and cane toads, 25 lbs. & poisonous. Also exploding in numbers.

    It is certainly possible to fuck up the environment, and that's ANOTHER reason to keep these horses.

    We NEVER should have killed all the wolf packs out west. We don't always know which native species is a lynchpin.

    They administer birth control hormones to many of the mares.

    To keep the population total down. Not so wild mares can slut it up!

    You make no sense in this post.
