SRWHMG Official Statement in Regards to Stray Horses

SRWHMG Official Statement in Regards to Stray Horses
When people find stray or abandoned horses, anywhere in Arizona, these horses have to be picked up, held for seven days, and sold at auction by AZDA, (Arizona Department of Agriculture), even if the finder or a horse rescue is interested in keeping the horse(s). This is not the fault of the AZDA, it is Arizona law. We were confronted with this last year, when we found Cochise abandoned in the Tonto National Forest; he had to be picked up, went to the auction, where we then bought him back. (He has severe arthritis and is now living happily ever

Water Management, The Environment, and Wild Horses

Water Management, The Environment, and Wild Horses
SRP (Salt River Project) has no environmental clause for the management of the lower Salt River, from Stewart Mountain Dam, to Granite Reef Dam, and it is usually kept at 0 to 8 CFS during the winter. (Compare this to the average of 900 CFS during the summer.) It pains us every year to see the river reduced to just a trickle and see the river eelgrass rot and die, which is an amazing resource for the horses. The impact does not just pertain to the horses of course, but to all wildlife, aquatic life, plants and trees along the

About 15% of the Salt River Wild Horses Have the Grey Factor

About 15% of the Salt River Wild Horses Have the Grey Factor
About 15% of the Salt River wild horses have the grey factor. This means that they can be anything from dark grey, dappled, light grey or white. However, even when they appear completely white, they are still called a grey, because their skin underneath is black. They are only a "white" horse, if the skin underneath is pink. We have no whites on the river, we have only greys. Snow's mother Snow White (who died from mesquite bean colic) was the whitest mare on the river, even though she was a grey. ( lol, confused yet? ) Grey horses are

ANOTHER Dumped Horse in the Tonto National Forest!

ANOTHER Dumped Horse in the Tonto National Forest!
We had to rescue yet ANOTHER dumped horse in the Tonto National Forest! SERIOUSLY! This one is a gelding as well and a little younger than the other one, approximately 16 to18 yrs and the paint looks to be approximately 18 to 20. Both appear healthy and not lame. After getting him safe as well, it was awfully suspicious how happy these two horses were to see each other! If anyone knows these horses or has seen them in someone's yard, we sure would love to find out who the person is who a.) starved these horses and b.) left
