Wild Horses Up For Adoption

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is holding a wild horse and burro adoption at the Nacogdches County Exposition Center. About 80 adult and yearling horses and burros that once roamed Nevada and Wyoming public lands are waiting for a new home. The BLM periodically removes excess animals from the range in order to ensure hheard health and to protect fragile desert ecosystems.

Preview of all the animals continues Friday at 8 a.m. A competitive bid adoption starts at 10 a.m. Following the competitive bid adoption Friday morning, walkup adoptions will commence and continue until 6 p.m., then resume Saturday, from 8 a.m. until noon. Minimum adoption fee, set by law, is $125 per animal to qualifed adopters.  www.wildhorseandburro.blm.gov
