20 mustangs, 5 burros set for adoption this month

The Bureau of Land Management will have nearly two dozen wild mustangs and burros for adoption later this month at the Mesa County Sheriff’s Posse Grounds.

“The BLM is responsible for managing multiple resources on public lands, including the nation’s wild horse and burro herds,” said Fran Ackley, BLM Colorado wild horse and burro program lead, in a news release.

“One of the most important parts of our job is finding good homes for wild horses and burros whose population are outgrowing the range’s ability to support them.”

About 20 wild mustangs up for adoption recently were gathered from the Little Book Cliffs Wild Horse Range east of Grand Junction.

The estimated five burros for adoption were gathered in Nevada and Arizona.

Registration for the adoption is 5-7 p.m. Sept. 27 and again from 8-9 a.m. Sept. 28, at the Sheriff’s Posse Grounds at the corner of F 1/2 and 25 roads.

Prospective adopters must have an approved adoption application to register.

Visit the Bureau of Land Management’s website for information about the process, blm.gov/adoptahorse.

Bidding is scheduled at 9-10 a.m. Sept. 28.

The minimum bid for all animals is $125, the release said.
