    Wild Horses up for adoption

    So...apparently rather than culling herds of wild horses that grow too large, the feds have decided to capture and adopt out some of the animals. Here's the website: http://www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/wil...and_burro.html

    I thought it's great! I read through their requirements and they all seem reasonable and safe for the animals. I like this idea better than just shooting them. ^-^ And $125 is WAY cheaper than I would have expected! O:

    Although, admittedly you'd have to put a LOT of work into them. Still, for someone with the property, time, money and experience for it, it would be very rewarding!

    Re: Wild Horses up for adoption

    They've been doing it for years. If you ask, most of the time they will put a halter on the horse for you(your halter). You HAVE to have a closed trailer usually too! So not open back half window.. you can rig a cover.
    They need some work, the younger the easier to work with. They are usually smaller animals, but tough rugged horses, great for trail riding.
    Sometimes they pair up with PMU foal organizations too, and you can get half drafts, or paints, or appaloosas too.
    Always a cool thing to check out if nothing else!
