I'm not sure if they prefer Greene tractors....

Or were merely hungry and attracted by *anything* that was green.

Maybe they figured if they pooped enough around it the fertilizer would make it grow? Laughing out loud

BEst of luck.

Actually they were licking the rust out of the loader bucket.

They were so interested in that rust they let me get within about 8 feet of them.

Mark,

It looks like you have been working with your neighbors. I am surprised they let you get that close to get a picture. Looks like they are well fed. Any chance you might one day get a halter and lead rope on one? ;O)

Put a rope on a sacred wild horse?

Good greif..... That would be like shooting a wolf in Montana or eating a chunk of beef in India.

Probably end up in jail. It is against the law to even offer them food.

I wasn't aware that it was illegal to feed them or catch them. BLM rounds them up and sells them periodically. The picture in the adding hp thread makes them look like they are pretty well fed. Looked kinda like they were eating some goodies from your FEL bucket. I bet you could make REAL good buddies with them with a few bags of "Mare and Foal" 16% sweet feed. ;O)

I am not a horse guy, but my understanding is that they are so used to the wild forage that you could make them pretty sick by giving them high powered food that would be normal fare for domesticated horses.

We have several Russian olive trees on the property. When the olives are ripe they strip everything they can reach. Just as well as the olives are not really harvestable, but we do have to race the horses to the apples or we get none.

Mark, you are absolutely right about the food.

Horses, along with other related animals like deer and moose, have a digestive system which is highly adaptable, but takes time to do so. This is why deer & moose for example, can live off tree bark and twigs in the winter when nothing else is available.

In my area they have a big problem with people feeding deer in the winter when they think the deer are 'starving' and need the handout. Since we live in a rural suburb of a big city, we are in 'horse country' and hay is easy to come by. The result is people feeding hay to deer in mid-winter when they can't digest it. Killing them with kindness as it were.

There was a big fuss in the media locally here 2 years ago because the Natural Resources people charged a local lady with "interfering with wildlife" and "causing cruelty to wildlife resulting in death" after she refused to stop feeding deer hay out of her backyard. When the CO's started poking around they found a recently deceased deer a short distance from her place in a small yard the deer used.

It was dead of malnutrition and was bloated from all the hay in it's belly. It had eaten so much hay that it could not digest, that the deer literally starved to death because it was too full to eat anything else.

The local animal rights people quickly took up her cause, but dropped her like a hot potatoe once the facts came out.

Depending on where you and what animals you have, a fortified salt lick (added minerals and stuff), and providing clean water might be in order, but nothing more.

Best of luck.
