Nineteen yearling wild horses, removed from the range during the Diamond Complex Gather, will be offered for adoption to qualified people through an on-site adoption to be held February 9, at the BLM Eureka Fire Station, approximately 1 mile northwest of Eureka, Nevada. The adoption will begin at 10:30 a.m. but interested adopters can come early to view the yearlings.

All other wild horses removed will be made available through the regular adoption program.
During the first year, the government retains title to the animal(s), and will conduct compliance checks throughout the year in an effort to ensure that the animal is properly being cared for and has gone to a good home. At the end of the first year, if the adopter has complied with all the adoption stipulations and has properly cared for their mustang or burro for one year, he or she is eligible to receive title, or ownership, from the Federal government.
