Salt River wild horses are doing a great job at mitigating our extremely high firedanger. They are eating the yellowed and dried up forage, which is just kindle waiting for a spark.
Right now we can smell the fire that is burning near mm 207, just 10 miles from us (no wild horses live there) and we are glad that our wild horses are doing for free, what the Forest Service spends millions of dollars on; making trees more fireproof by hedging the low branches and brush underneath them. Don’t they deserve some credit for that? To join our mission and support our work please visit SRWHMG.org
