@Tough_Boots
Bighorn are a little more nimble than an old heifer. I think they’ll be just fine.

Hopefully Ruidoso and Alamogordo will want to reintroduce their "wild" horses also. We could help with that.
In Japan they say only old people and crazy people hike mountains...........yep

Ugh I allegedly chase one herd of bighorn sheep off the cliffs of Bluff Mountain and I am pegged a sheep killer the rest of my life... [-(

I think bighorn remain in the mountains on the other side of the basin and north of the Organs.
Nothing more enjoyable than a good hike out of town.
