Mustangs find new homes at Ferndale adoption event
The BLM-California wild horse and burro program visited the Victorian Village of Ferndale on Feb. 11, rolling into town with five mustangs and a burro to offer for adoption. The trailers left the Humboldt County Fairgrounds empty, as all offered animals found homes with North Coast families.
North Coast adopters took advantage of the opportunity to show the success they've had with their adopted horses, and brought them to the event.
The adoption event was held in conjunction with an annual pack clinic hosted by the Back Country Horsemen of California Redwood Unit. The event included opportunities for equestrians to learn proper packing techniques, Dutch oven cooking and other back country skills.
The weekend event also featured a riding clinic led by noted horse trainer Jerry Tindell.
