    Millard County's West Desert

    Roaming The Range

    Wild horses still run free on Millard County’s west desert. The Swasey HMA is located approximately 50 miles west of Delta at the base of Swasey Mountain. The middle pond, fed via a pipeline from from Swasey Spring, is the primary water source for horses on the east side of the mountain.

    Bring a pair of field glasses, a camera and scan the flats from the north to south of the middle pond. Best time for viewing is late afternoon as horses travel to and from the pond for a drink.

    Other HMAs provide viewing opportunities are the Conger HMA near Skunk Springs, and the Confusion HMA, located north of Cowboy Pass in the Confusion Mountains.
