Eleven Mustangs Seeking a Home

Eleven wild horses and five burros from public lands of the American West are in need of places they can call home. On Saturday, March 10, the Sundance Ranch in Redlands, Calif. will host a Bureau of Land Management Wild Horse and Burro Adoption from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. A Friday preview runs from 1 to 5 p.m. 

Adopters are required to provide each animal with a minimum of 400 square feet. The corrals must be of pipe or wood construction and have shelters with two sides and roofs. Horses more than 18 months of age must have fences at least 6 feet in height. Younger horses require fences 5 feet in height, while burros require 4 ½ feet.

Adopters agree to be caretakers for the horses and burros for at least one year, during which time the animals remain 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 with vaccinations and deworming. Each also has a current Coggins test.

The Sundance Ranch in Redlands is located at 27273 Pilgrim Road, off San Timoteo Canyon Road.  For more information, please contact the Ridgecrest Regional Wild Horse and Burro Corrals at (800) 951-8720.
