Fair visitors learn about wild horses and burros
Visitors to the Nevada County Fair in Grass Valley this year got a first-hand look at mustangs, burros and their trainers.
Volunteers showed horses they have trained to the public and answered questions at demonstrations. They also staffed an information booth.
“This was a very successful event,” said Jason Williams, BLM wild horse and burro compliance specialist. “We had a lot of good discussions with the public about the wild horse and burro program. I would like to thank all the volunteers who made this possible, especially Michele DeCamp, who made the initial contact with the fair.”
BLM held a wild horse and burro adoption in Grass Valley following the fair on Aug. 28. Five horses and one burro were halter-gentled by volunteer and put up for adoption. All were adopted.
