"Meet & Greet" a Mustang
In an effort to get the word out about the wild horse and burro program, BLM volunteers are offering opportunities for the public to “meet and greet” a mustang.
Volunteers staffed booths at a Walnut Creek Horse Faire and an event at Tractor Supply in Gilroy. Pat Offut took his mustang, April, to the Walnut Creek event and hub leader Syd Blankenship gave attendees in Gilroy a chance to get to know Blue, a star BLM employee who assists wrangler Pat Cannon.
“We rely on volunteers to help get the word out about the Wild Horse and Burro Program and appreciate their work in these events,” said Amy Dumas, California Wild Horse and Burro Program lead.
Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Dumas at (916) 978-4678, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For additional information on adoptions or wild horse management, contact the BLM toll free at 1-866-4MUSTANGS. Information is also available online at www.wildhorseandburro.blm.gov.
