West Bench, Faulder, Okanagan Lake West
End of season update: After a slow start, the feeding stations seemed to work quite well again. Although there were definitely more horses on the native strip just above the West Bench this year, the problem was much less severe than in past years. Again, the horses do seem to be visiting the Penticton River Channel to get water (unlike horses grazing on natural, snow-covered grasses, hay-fed horses normally require water). This migration along the roads to find water may be an unwanted byproduct of the feeding station approach.
