Animals Continue to receive care at the Wyoming Honor Farm
One of the essential services the BLM and its contractors continue to provide as we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic is the ongoing care for our nation's wild horses and burros in off-range facilities. During these challenging circumstances, the Wyoming Honor Farm in Riverton continues to care for and train wild horses and burros in preparation for adoption. While the spring adoption has been cancelled, the BLM and Honor Farm look forward to a possible fall adoption.
"With all of the extra time and training these horses are getting, it should be a really nice adoption," said Farm Supervisor Joe Crofts.
Honor Farm inmate trainers are following guidance from the CDC and state and local authorities to minimize risk of COVID-19 transmission.
The BLM and its contractors continue to feed, monitor and provide essential care to the wild horses and burros in all its off-range facilities while following the latest guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and state and local health authorities to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission to BLM staff, contractors and the public.
The BLM also continues to assess upcoming wild horse and burro activities and encourage prospective adopters and purchasers to visit the online event schedule for the latest information on event changes and facility closures, or contact the BLM for the latest information.
