The Chase Is On D1215

It was hard to tell what was happening here but it was either a stallion chasing away a grown son or a challenger being chased off by a herd stallion. Either way it was incredible to see the power of these two as they galloped at top speed through the sagebrush.
The South Steens Herd Management is a herd in an area about 70 miles southwest of Burns and 10 miles south of Frenchglen along Hwy 205 and the Steens Mountain south loop road.
There is over 130,000 acres with elevation rangining from 5,000 to over 7,500 feet. The climate is harsh with very cold winters and dry, hot summers.
The area is in rugged high desert country located on the southwestern flank of Steens Mountain and is characterized by extremely rocky surfaces divided by canyons, rimrocks and plateaus, dissected by perennial and intermittent stream channels.
The herds can be difficult to find with the tall sagebrush and the many ridges and valleys. As there is about 159 to 304 in the herd they are a bit easier to locate than most wild horse herds. The colors range from Pinto, buckskin, sorrel, bay, palomino, gray, brown, and black ranging from 900 to 1200 pounds and 14 to16 hands.
The HMA is managed for pinto colored horses with above average conformation.
