BLM and Mantle Ranch Wild Horse Adoption a Success


The Bureau of Land Management and the Mantle Wild Horse Training Facility in Wheatland, Wyo. held an adoption last weekend which was a huge success.

The Mantle Wild Horse Training Facility offered eight saddle-started horses, two halter started horses, and two burros. All eight saddle started horses were adopted during the afternoon event and one of the halter started yearlings. Two of the horses went to Texas and several other horses went to Wyoming locals. More than 40 people came to tour the facility, look at the horses, and adopt animals.

“We're really pleased with the number of animals which are going to good homes!" says Wild Horse and Burro Specialist Scott Fluer. “We look forward to another successful adoption next year at the ranch.”

The Mantle Wild Horse Adoption and Training Center is located in Wheatland, Wyo. For more information, contact Mantle Ranch at 307-322-5799 or visit www.mantleswildhorses.com. You may also call 866-4MUSTANGS or visit www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/programs/Wild_Horses.html.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
