    Mustang trails

    Many moons ago I bought a mountain bike to do field work. The first trails I rode on were made by wild horses. I've found they make good trails. I had the opportunity to ride another mustang trail recently.

    This was on a Mustang sanctuary at the NE tip of the Black Forest.

    there's a pretty sweet trail system in western Nebraska called Potter's Pasture. it was literally a pasture where the owner held cattle. he started riding his dirt bike out on the trails that the cattle made, then invited some friends with mountain bikes. that was years ago...now it's a fully developed trail system that is free to use. the cows made some pretty good trails as well.

    Sounds like a great LU research project. My hypothesis: the impact of trails from feral and/or domesticated animals is the same, or greater, than impact from human made trails on geography and surrounding flora and fauna, including Preble's meadow jumping mouse.

    Some things to investigate:

    Range habits of feral/domesticated animals vs. rage habits of indigenous animals (large grazers specifically)
    Comparisons of trails made by humans, feral/domestic animals, native animals
    Impacts of trails on surrounding flora, fauna and geography--erosion, usage, etc.
