Good Homes Sought for Mustangs, Burros, and Mule

A variety of wild mustangs, burros -- and even a mule -- are looking for new homes through the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Program.  On Saturday June 9, the Sundance Ranch in Redlands will host a BLM Wild Horse and Burro Adoption from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a preview on Friday, June 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.   The Sundance Ranch is located at 27273 Pilgrim Road (off San Timoteo Canyon Road), Redlands, Calif.

The adopter agrees to act as caretaker for the animal for at least one year during which time the animal remains the property of the BLM.  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 with vaccinations and deworming.   They also have a current Coggins test.

Adoption prerequisites require that each animal be provided a minimum of 400 square feet (20’ x 20’).  The corral must be of pipe or wood construction and have a shelter with two sides and a roof.  Horses more than 18 months of age must have a fence at least 6-feet tall.  Younger horses need fencing that is at least 5-feet tall; burros and mules require 4½-feet fencing.

For more information, please contact the Ridgecrest Regional Wild Horse and Burro Corrals, (800) 951-8720.
