Dead Horse in Frog Tanks H2O

Hiked Frog Tanks trail from Angel Basin to Plow Saddle on 2/14/18 and there was a dead horse in the only standing water along the route maybe 1/2 mile along the Frog Tanks trail in Rogers Canyon from Angel Basin. Looked like it hadn't been dead for that long though its eyes were missing :( !

Ewe.. That sucks.

Can I ask if there was any water in Angel basin itself?

Thanks!

Some years back there was dead horse in the biggest pool at Reavis Ranch. I always hate that, but I've filtered and drunk dead horse water before.

So, that's the answer. We always did wonder about you... :D

It's really only part of the answer, but it's a good start.

There was no water in Angel Basin, though this was before the rain.

It's a dead horse, not a sheep.
