Might end up changing the way we think of the first domesticated horses in America. Very interesting how the equines were buried.

Great article, thanks, Mike!
Looks like if the carbon-dating is correct there will be only conjecture to determine why these horses (& donkey) were buried.
The theory of an earlier Spanish exploration seems most likely.
With the "grand resort" going up at least they are planning to preserve part of the area.
