Horse and burro adopters brave cold weather for King City event
Seven horses and six burros were adopted in King City over the weekend following a snowy trek from the Litchfield corrals near Susanville.
Highways over the mountain passes were closed shortly after the trucks carrying the horses and burros passed through. Unseasonably cold weather in the Salinas Valley also failed to deter members of the public who came out to see or adopt the horses and burros.
Adoptions are scheduled in March for Redlands (March 12) and Temecula (March 19).
For additional information on the adoptions or wild horse management, contact the BLM toll free at 1-866-4MUSTANGS (866 468-7826). Information is also available online at www.wildhorseandburro.blm.gov.
