Coppersmith HMA California - Google search.

Instead of looking for information on the BLM website, I googled the Coppersmith HMA and found both acreage and number of horses. The last roundup was January 2011 and they reduced the horses to 50 on 50 000 acres????

In the Coppersmith HMA, straddling the California-Nevada border northwest of Ravendale, Calif., BLM estimates 86 horses must be removed to bring the herd population to its AML of 50 to 75 wild horses.

nant wildlife in the area includes pronghorn, mule deer, sage grouse, chukar and quail.
HERD SIZE:    50 - 75 head
HORSE COLORS:      Bay, Black and Brown
SIZE OF HORSES:     14-16 hands and 900-1100 pounds
HISTORY:       This area contains horses thought to originate from Spanish stock diluted with ranch stock and US Cavalry remounts prior to and during World War I. Many of the horses in this area have characteristics common to Morgans and Quarter Horses.
