Adopt a Wild Horse for the Holidays


The Wyoming Bureau of Land Management will be adopting horses by appointment only during the winter months, at the Wild Horse Facility at the end of Lionkol Road in Rock Springs, Wyo. An adoption application must be completed prior to adopting. Horses are available for close viewing by appointment.

These are some of the best mustangs in the nation with lots of colorful horses to choose from after our recent gathers. These horses are well adapted to the Wyoming terrain and climate. For more information, call the Wild Horse Program at 307-352-0292, or visit the website at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/programs/Wild_Horses.html



The BLM manages more land - 253 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
