Sorry but your research is not over...Horses did not go extinct in North America...
"According to the Dakota/Lakota oral tradition, the aboriginal horse never became extinct and was part of their pre-contact culture.
The horse is aboriginal to North America, and biologists can offer no scientific reasons for its extinction here and not in Eurasia."

+afroditi katsikis "Radiocarbon dating of 340 years, plus or minus 40 years, puts the death of the horse sometime between 1625 and 1705, Mojado said."


Sorry, but 1625 is not Pre-Columbian times. The Spanish Conquistadors sailed with Columbus back in 1492-1522. This is an interesting find indeed, but it does not debunk the links that I provided (which you failed that read, clearly, from your response). The horse fossil from your link is not a Yukon horse (Equus lambei), Mexican horse (Equus conversidens), or Western horse (Equus occidentalis) -- but the now domestic horse (Equus caballus).

What a crock of cow manure - sounds like welfare ranchers wrote the script! Chad Booth did you do any research on your own? Horses are indigenous to the Americas! When the Spaniards described horses in their diaries, they did not recognize that the horses that were here; they considered themselves and their horses superior to those the native American's had. Typical method used by conquerors in the past was to squelch the conquered peoples by downplaying their culture, history & religion. Keep in mind that when the conquerors came here the 'Inquisition' by the Catholic Church was in full force.

As far as the the value  to the economy, did you read Thomas M. Power, Ph.D. article "TAKING STOCK OF PUBLIC LANDS GRAZING  An Economic Analysis" http://www.publiclandsranching.org/htmlres/wr_taking_stock.htm

The cost of rounding up and warehousing wild horses and burros is a hole that BLM dug as a result of their inability to study and learn about wild horses & burros habits, how and what they eat, social structure and value they bring to the land. These constant roundups only spur on the horse herds to breed more foals. Read International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB) report: http://protectmustangs.org/?p=6057

In short, BLM has missed the chance to become authorities on wild horses instead promoting welfare ranching which costs the tax payers much more than necessary.

You gave him a chance to be loved and he gave you the chance to love back...so sorry to hear of his passing but I'm sure he will always be with you. Many hugs Noel!
And congratulations for entering the blogging world!
Ever live for a time in a place without hope? My trip through the valley came after I had spent myself at a job running a very troubled property in a very troubled small town.  For two years I was beat up it seemed, virtually...
