Wild Horses Available for Adoption at Cheyenne Frontier Days


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will offer two halter-started fillies for adoption by silent bid at Cheyenne Frontier Days July 19-27.

The horses will be available for viewing in a corral across from the General Land Office in the old west town, located east of the fairgrounds.

Bids may be placed from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. At noon on Saturday, July 27 bidding will close and the two yearlings will go home to the highest qualified bidder or bidders. The horses must be loaded and taken home that day.

One is a yearling filly born in the Rock Springs Wild Horse Holding Facility, Rock Springs Wyo. She is a buckskin with a star, strip and a snip on her face and one high left hind sock.

The second yearling filly was also born in the Rock Springs Wild Horse Holding Facility. She has a star on her face and three white socks.

Requirements to adopt include: a corral made of pipe or wood and a shelter; a safe, enclosed stock trailer; and the ability to provide for the animal. Bidders must complete an adoption application prior to placing a bid.

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.
