Chowchilla Wild Horse & Burro Adoption

The Bureau of Land Management's wild horse and burro adoption program rolled into the San Joaquin Valley community of Chowchilla the weekend of April 24-25, and left 58 horses and burros with new adoptive families.

Valley residents took home 47 horses and 11 burros over the two-day event.

The adoption program moves to the Nevada County Fairgrounds in Grass Valley on May 15-16, then to the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in Chico on June 12-13.
