> BLM auctions 16 wild horses

Approximately 200 people attended the second of three annual saddle-trained horse adoption events held May 31 at the Northern Nevada Correctional Center. The event was hosted by the Bureau of Land Management and the Nevada Department of Corrections.

The horses were gathered from herd management areas on public lands in Nevada, California and Utah and were saddle-trained for four months by inmate trainers in the NNCC program. All of the 16 horses offered were adopted as well as one burro. Bids started at $150 and the event’s top bid of $2,800 went for a four-year-old chestnut gelding named Sunset. The average bidding price for each horse was $1,105 and the total for all the animals was $18,800. The successful bidders officially adopted their new horse or burro and must show diligent care of each animal for a year before they can apply to the BLM to receive a title of ownership.

The next horse adoption event is the Wild Horse and Burro Expo on Aug. 2 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Minden. For more information, go to http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/carson_city_field/blm_programs/wild_horse_and_burro.html.
