T. Boone Pickens spouse has plan to prevent killing of wild horses rounded up by the BLM

Plans to buy a big Nevada ranch as “retirement” for the horses-

This is quite a proposal . . . perhaps a million acre ranch in Nevada where these to-be-gelded horses and burros.

Unfortunately, while such large ranches are available, Nevada is so arid; and the ranches generally so devastated from years of cattle grazing, the horses may well starve and further damage the land, even with a million acres. Maybe 7-million acres?
