Six more wild horses perish, some under gruesome conditions

Since Saturday, February 20th, six more horses from the Calico roundup have died, and two more foals perished before they even took their first breath.  The total number of lives lost among the wild horses being held captive in BLM corrals near Fallon, Nevada is at least 58, not counting dozens of late-term miscarriages.  The horses seem to be dying at such an alarming rate that the BLM itself is no longer issuing a daily total of the mortalities.
