Hope you are able to do that!

Thank you. I am now reading the on-line version of Parley J. Paskett’s 1986 “Wild Mustang” book:
https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/cgi/v...=usupress_pubs

And I am also reading Andrew Smith’s 1987 review of “Wild Horses of the Great Basin: Social Competition andPopulation Size” by Joel Berge.
https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/...1988.tb04172.x

“The Secret Lives of Horses: Long-term observations of wild equines reveal a host of unexpected behaviors” By Wendy Williams on May 1, 2017
https://www.scientificamerican.com/a...es-of-horses1/

Scientists have long studied the best ways to train and treat domesticated horses, but they largely ignored the behavior of free-ranging horses. Recent research has begun to fill that gap.
-Observations from long-term studies of wild horses show that the conventional, male-centric view of their power dynamics is wrong.
-In fact, females often call the shots, employing tactics such as cooperation and persistence to get their way.

Wild Horses of the Great Basin: Social Competition and Population Size. Joel Berger. University of Chicago Press, 1986.
https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/...1988.tb04172.x

The Importance of Ethology in Understanding the Behavior of the Horse. D. Goodwin in
Equine Veterinary Journal, Vol. 31, No. S28, pages 15–19; April 1999.
“Domestication has provided the horse with food, shelter, veterinary care and protection, allowing individuals an increased chance of survival. However, the restriction of movement, limited breeding opportunities and a requirement to expend energy, for the benefit of another species, conflict with the evolutionary processes which shaped the behavior of its predecessors. The behavior of the horse is defined by its niche as a social prey species but many of the traits which ensured the survival of its ancestors are difficult to accommodate in the domestic environment. There has been a long association between horses and man and many features of equine behavior suggest a predisposition to interspecific cooperation. However, the importance of dominance in human understanding of social systems has tended to overemphasize its importance in the human‐horse relationship. The evolving horse‐human relationship from predation to companionship, has resulted in serial conflicts of interest for equine and human participants. Only by understanding the nature and origin of these conflicts can ethologists encourage equine management practices which minimize deleterious effects on the behavior of the horse.”

I think you'll enjoy these quotes from Parley J. Paskett's 1986 book "Wild Mustangs."

“Wild Mustangs” by Parley Johnson Paskett (1918-
https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/cgi/v...=usupress_pubs

Acknowledgement: Paskett was given his first Mustang at age two (2) and was riding the wild horse round-ups at age nine (9).

“Using helicopters today to run down wild horses removes both the thrill and sport in their capture.” -Parley J. Paskett

p.17 In the early 1930s Paskett, while he was herding sheep, captured a Mustang he named Tiger.
“Tiger became a good saddle horse, though hard to break because he was seven years old and wild as anything I ever saw. He filled out to weigh a thousand pounds when fat, and he had stamina and courage that was hard to equal."

p.19
“A clock watcher would never be a mustanger. Patience is most essential.”

p.120
“Some prefer to run mustangs in early spring, a good time because they are weak from the rough winter feed and the mares are heavy with foal. This very fact causes me to shy away from the early spring. I hesitate to take full advantage of the female process regardless of which species it might be.”

p.120-121
“Often when running to a corral you wind up with a wild horse on your rope, so keep it handy at all times.”

Proposed Interview Questions - DRAFT and Work-in-Progress **First Attempt**

Aaaaahhhhh! This is going to be a lot of work figuring out how to create exciting and informative interviews that the public will want to watch (or listen to). I'm now thinking NPR or Freakonomics type podcasts? Or like a Trevor Noah's Daily Show segment both funny and serious.

Interviewees: Individuals born before 1950, e.g., age 70 or older.
1 Would you like to share your recollections of the "good old days?"
2 Do you have a favorite horse memory or horse story?
3 Have you ever had any interactions with America's wild horses? Burros?
4 Have you ever participated or been a spectator of a wild horse round-up?
5 How do you feel about the overall situation of America’s wild horses and burros in the wild? Of America’s wild horses and burros that are currently in holding facilities?
6 What do you think of the current process? Do you think it is working? Is there anything you would change?

Interviewees: Individuals with little or no prior knowledge of America's wild horses and burros dilemma.
1 What is your impression of America's wild horses? Burros?
2 Would you like to know more about them?
3 Would you ever want to visit a place where they run wild? A Government holding facility? Being "gentled," e.g., trained for human's enjoyment, sport, or work?
4 What are your thoughts on America's public lands that are controlled by the US Government, e.g., The Bureau of Land Management?
5 Do you or have you enjoyed America's public lands, especially in the US western states such as Nevada, Wyoming, Arizona, Utah.
6 What do you think of the fences that break-up the open space?
7 What do you think the primary use of the land should be? Human entertainment such as hiking, camping? Native species, both flora (plants) and fauna (animals)? Mined for its natural resources such as natural gas, coal, petroleum, potash? Ranched, e.g., cattle, sheep? Shared?
8 Do you consider America wild horses a native species?
9 What are your thoughts on the compensatory reproduction of feral animals?
10 Would you like to know more about the “stalemate?”

I might get rid of this question, since by law all public lands are to be managed for multi-use. So the recreationist's, the wildlife, the miners and yes, even the ranchers, already have to share. Changing that would not be a good thing ((Because that would only lead to each group wanting everything for themselves to the complete and total exclusion of everyone else and throwing fits and tantrums and keeping the courthouses busy with litigation if they don't get their way)), so I wouldn't even so much as suggest it as an option.

I would knock this one out too, since it comes across as a leading question.
