the SAND WASH BASIN collection
- The Sand Wash Basin Herd Management Area (HMA) encompasses nearly 157,730 acres including 154,940 acres of public land 1,960 acres of private land and 840 acres of state land. The AML(appropriate management levels-number of horses allowed)set by the BLM, under heavy influence by special interest groups, is only 163-363 horses.
- The SWB is located in NW Colorado, about an hour west of Craig. With stunning mesas and washes, lined with sagebrush and junipers. Many of the grays in this area remind me of the traditional Spanish Iberian breeds.
- Sleeping under stars, wild sounds at night and coffee in the morning with these beauties hundreds of feet away is a joy I revist in my mind often.
