Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Event - Yuba City - October 29-30, 2005
The Bureau of Land Management’s Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Program rolled into the Northern Sacramento Valley community of Yuba City on Oct. 29-30, and 34 animals found homes with new families.

Below, even the youngest of adopters were on hand to find the horse of their dreams.
A highlight of the event was the adoption of Gracie, shown below with BLM volunteer Edona Miller of Wheatland. Edona spent about two weeks gentling Gracie, who drew a bid of $400. The adopter knew that Gracie had a good beginning with her training and was ready to continue learning.
As always, BLM staff members were on hand to answer adopters’ questions and to show the results of training a mustang.
