Wild Horse Adoption Scheduled For January

by Jackson Hole Radio News

It’s not likely many young ladies got a proverbial pony for Christmas, but there is an opportunity coming up next month to obtain a horse quite reasonably from the BLM. The Bureau of Land Management Rock Springs Wild Horse Holding Facility will reopen with a wild horse adoption event on Jan. 18-19 which will include 10 mares, 10 geldings, and 40 weanlings which were gathered in September 2018 from the Green Mountain and Stewart Creek herd management areas. The offered horses will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for the base adoption fee of $125. Any person wishing to adopt a wild horse must fill out an application, be able to conform to the BLM’s minimum adoption requirements and have their application approved by the BLM. BLM specialists will be on hand to answer questions and assist with the adoption applications. The holding facility where the adoption event is taking place is located on the north end of Rock Springs just east of US Highway 191.
