Define "small pockets of land" in this instance please.

I guess "small" is a relative term. I know my mustang was gathered from Black Rock West. They can freely range from Black Rock West and East giving them 196,000 acres of land and its deemed to be able to maintain 112-186 head.

BTW - if you don't believe they are out there you can go yourself and go see them.

are you referring to branded mustangs or ...? sorry, i'm a bit confused on that last sentence.

I see mustangs every day, multiple times a day - both in the pens at the BLM holding facility as well as off the deck of the house as they mosey on through the property and say hello to our horses. The only ones i've ever seen branded are the ones that were gathered and brought in for adoption. *shrug*

Sorry - that was in reference to Corporal's comment that mustangs weren't on the ranges. People can actually go out there and look for themselves.

As for branding - the only time I can think a branded one might be on the range is if they had brought in a nice stallion and had branded it and decided to release it back. I have heard they release nice stallion back out - usually in a different area to increase genetic diversity - but I really don't know if they have brands on them or not.

I'm pretty sure they don't brand the ones they decide to turn back out. I can't say that with 100% certainty but i'm 90% sure they don't. you are correct though - the horses are most definitely out on "the range".
