Ferndale wild horse and burro adoption and pack clinic
Wild horses, burros and a baby mule found new homes, when the BLM Wild Horse and Burro adoption program visited the Victorian village of Ferndale on Saturday, Feb. 12. The animals were offered for adoption during a pack clinic organized by the Back Country Horsemen of California's Redwood Unit at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds. Five of the seven animals offered (four horses, 2 burros and a weanling mule) were adopted.
The adoption event was held in partnership with the Back Country Horsemen for the second consecutive year. The horsemen's pack clinic featured exhibitors, instructional sessions on packing and a riding clinic featuring clinician Jerry Tindell.
