BLM Cancels February Horse Adoption Event

RENO, Nev. (775 Times, NV Globe) – A wild horse adoption event scheduled for February has been canceled by the Bureau of Land Management and the Nevada Department of Corrections.

The intended date for the occasion was February 11.

“Due to the recent storms that have occurred since the New Year holiday, we felt that for both the animals and the public it was the right thing to do,” said Ruth Thompson, BLM Nevada, Wild Horse and Burro Specialist. “NNCC takes great pride on the level of training of their horses to ensure successful long-term homes and we are also concerned that road travel within the next few weeks could continue to be an issue.”

The Northern Nevada Correctional Center will hold its second competitive-bid auction and adoption of saddle-trained wild horses on June 3, 2023.
