    Seen them there and on Ua Huka too - running wild on the ridges is a beautiful sight.

    Yeaaaaaah I don’t know about this. These horses look pretty skinny, the low rainfall means that there is no lush grass to sustain them and given the size of that herd, they have no natural predators. Meaning that the tiny island is not able to sustain an introduced species.

    It looks as though the numbers in this herd need to be greatly reduced. They've likely overpopulated the area causing a food shortage resorting in many of these horses being quite underweight

    If they dont have a predator they'll overpopulate and overgraze, killing the island and themselves
