Photo detail

A helicopter directs wild horses into holding pens Saturday at Sand Wash Basin. The project, sponsored by the Bureau of Land Management, is meant to thin the herd to a size that the local habitat is able to support. Some of the horses caught will be adopted Saturday at the Moffat County Fairgrounds.
