Adopting a Twin Peaks Horse or Burro


Wild horses and burros removed from the Twin Peaks Herd Management Area will be offered for adoption to qualified people through the BLM’s Adopt a Wild Horse or Burro Program. Potential adopters must have the proper facilities to care for an adopted animal, and we always hope that they have experience working with a wild horse or burro, which will help ensure the gentling process.

During the first year, the government retains title to the animal(s), and will conduct compliance checks throughout the year in an effort to ensure that the animal is properly being cared for and has gone to a good home.  At the end of the first year, if the adopter has complied with all the adoption stipulations and has properly cared for their mustang or burro for one year, he or she is eligible to receive title, or ownership, from the Federal government.
