Mantle Ranch to Host Wild Horse Adoption

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is hosting a wild horse adoption on June 27, 2009 at the Mantle Ranch in Wheatland, Wyo.

Approximately 15 geldings will be available for viewing from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. The competitive bid adoption will begin at 1:30 p.m. The minimum bid for a horse is $125.

The horses have been saddle and halter trained. Each horse will be ridden prior to the adoption in order to demonstrate their abilities and level of training.

In order to adopt a horse, applicants must be 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, and have at least a 400-square foot pen for each horse adopted. A covered horse trailer with a swing gate is required for horse transportation.

Mantle’s ranch is located 10 miles south of Wheatland. Take Exit #68 off I-25. The ranch is located seven miles from the interstate. For more information contact Stephanie Anderson at (307) 352-0208.

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 sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
