Yes, the Wild Horse League keeps track of the number of horses in each heard and thin them out if it gets to be too many. As far as giving them a yearly physical, then no. They let them live in peace (as wild horses should) and only remove them if they become sickly or lame.

Real wild horses you cannot get close to, these are feral horses that people have turned loose to open range here and they have gotten away with it. They have been spotted on the highway at night near round spring and we wonder who will be responsible when there is an accident?

To REAL WILD HORSES,
These horses were mostly released or escaped around the time that the logging co.'s finished raping the forests circa.
approx. 1920's. however some people know a lot more on this subject then I do. they are federaly protected. they thin the several small herds in this area as needed.

You are way "off base" with your so called wild horses because the deer are native and the are not supported by a "wild deer league." It is also rare to walk up on a herd of deer or to see a herd of deer standing in the middle of the highway looking at you and not moving away. How would you like to accidently hit one at night on your way home?

OK, nutcase!! The point was, they are both wild animals and nobody is to blame if you hit a wild animal while your driving. If you are driving your vehicle in an area with animals, you are responsible to watch out for them or pay to fix your car if you don't. And yes, I've seen deer standing in the road that would just stare at the cars lights and not move so I'm not sure what your point was. And what does "supported by" the Wild Horse League, mean? Of course there is no "Wild Deer league", because the park service has never tried to exterminate these animals. If they decided to get rid of all of the deer in Shannon County, you can bet your ass there would be a Wild Deer League!!

Feral horses are feral horses, open range has been outlawed a long time ago. How many trail riders have dumped there horses in this area to get rid of them? This is not right either and wild native deer have nothing to do with this.

There used to be only a few and now there are three herds numbering close to fifty feral horses. It seems that the jncrease in population and protection is suspicious and potentially dangerous. Let it be known that the "Wild Horse League" is politically correct and could be the responsible party.

Not true!! There was always three herds and they maintain the number in the herds. If people let out horses into the herds they weed them out and take them to sell. This is more made up bullshit!

Nope, I'm not even a member of the Wild Horse League, but I do know a little bit of something and that sounds like a little more than you. I'm not on here running anyone or any organization down, that's you. So you prove your lies are true!

If simply stating being "politically correct" is running something down then so be it. It appears that there is a hidden agenda in this wild horse thing and it is not all on the up and up.

its a conspiracy. They have implanted cameras in the wild horses to see what really goes on at Shawnee and Round Spring. People, WATCH OUT!

Now think about it, why would a Trail Rider who spends a lot of money for their horses in most cases just one day be riding in that area and decide "Dufff, I'm gonna just turn my horse lose with these wild or feral horses and quit riding." If these dingbats knew anything about these horses they would know thats not going to happen. The truth is, these horses have been running lose for years, probably since the 1920's or a little later and are not someones "Trail Horse".
