Silver City, N.M. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will hold a wild horse and burro adoption event in Silver City, New Mexico, June 23-24, 2017. The two-day event at the Southwest Horsemen’s Association Rodeo Grounds will feature dozens of outstanding animals. The event will take place from noon - 6:00pm on Friday, June 23, and 8:00am – Noon on Saturday, June 24. The BLM will offer all animals for the minimum adoption fee of $125 (set by law).

The horses offered for adoption are adult and yearling horses and burros that once roamed free on public lands in the West.

The adoption program is essential for achieving these important management goals. Since 1973, the BLM has placed more than 235,000 of these “living legends” in approved homes across the country.
