Some of the wild horses gathered from the Owyhees following the Soda Fire are still available for adoption, the Bureau of Land Management reported Wednesday.
So far, 39 horses have been adopted. But six young fillies and five mares between the ages of 2 and 4 are still available, BLM reports. Additionally, a few mares and geldings, ages 2 to 6, from Nevada Herd Management Areas are available, according to a news release.
“There has been a great deal of interest in these horses, so I wanted to let people know that we have more available for adoption here at the Boise BLM Wild Horse Corrals,” said Clay Stott, Boise District wild horse and burro specialist.
To adopt a wild horse, you must be at least 18 years old, never have been convicted of animal abuse or cruelty and have the proper facilities to keep the horse. An approved adoption application must be on file.
Anyone interested in seeing the horses can contact Stott at 208-384-3454 to set up a time to visit the Boise Wild Horse Corrals.
