Famous Herd of Mustangs Faces A Round-Up
The Future of Our Nation's Wild Horses is Uncertain
In an area in the Pine Nut Mountains east of Gardnerville, Nevada there is a wild horse herd known as the Fish Springs herd. This herd has many bands in it, including the Blue’s band, Blondie's band, Zorro’s band, Socks' band, and Rogue’s band. The bands are named after the lead stallion. There are so few wild horses on that range that wild horse advocates, photographers, and locals name the horses.

Wild horses love their families and their freedom, but after they are rounded-up they lose all of that. When the Bureau of Land Management decides the amount of horses exceed the appropriate management area, they organize the rounding up of the excess horses. In the round-ups, helicopters are used to corral the horses into holding pens. From those pens they are taken to adoption centers where they are either put up for adoption or sold at auctions.
