Horses, Burros Available for Adoptions in Redlands

There is a mule out there looking for a good home.  So are two burros and eight horses. 

On Saturday August 11, 2012, the Sundance Ranch in Redlands will host a BLM Wild Horse and Burro Adoption from 9am to 2pm.  The Sundance Ranch is located at 27273 Pilgrim Road off San Timoteo Canyon Road in Redlands, CA.

Adoption fee is $125.  The adopter agrees to act as caretaker for one year, during which time the adopted horse or burro remains the property of the Federal Government.  After one year of providing proper care, the adopter may apply for and receive ownership title.

All animals are healthy and are up to date on vaccinations and deworming.   They also have a current Coggins test.

Each animal must be provided a minimum of 400 square feet (20’x20’) and the corral must be pipe or wood construction and have a shelter with two sides and a roof.  Horses over 18 months of age must have a fence at least 6 feet tall.  Younger horses under 18 months require a fence 5 feet tall and burros require a 4 ½-foot fence.

For more information about these animals or others available for adoption, please contact the Ridgecrest Regional Wild Horse and Burro Corrals at 800-951-8720.
