BLM to Hold Wild Horse and Burro 

Adoption in Idaho

 

July 2012 issue  

 

 

      The BLM Wild Horse and Burro Program will be offering approximately 30 wild horses and 10 burros for adoption August 16-18, 2012, at the Madison County Fairgrounds in Rexburg , Idaho .

      The horses will be yearling to three-year-olds, and several of them will be gentled during free gentling demonstrations to be held by trainer Mario Johnson of Georgetown , Idaho , during the two-day event.

      Johnson has given horse-gentling and handling demonstration for the BLM at adoptions in Idaho , Utah , and Wyoming . He likes to have his horses calm and relaxed, and he focuses on safety, using a pressure and release system to help each horse progress.

 

Rexburg, Idaho Wild Horse and Burro Adoption August 16-18, 2012

 

      Gus Warr, BLM–Utah Lead Wild Horse and Burro Specialist says of Johnson: “I was so confident in him that I took my personal, adopted mustang to him to work with and get started for me, because I knew he would do it right the first time.”

      Three, free, gentling demonstrations will be held each day on Friday, August 17 and Saturday, August 18. Viewing and adoptions will be held all three days.

      Four burros in the adoption will have been halter started by Gunnison Utah Correctional Facility inmates.

      All horses and burros will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for $125. A buddy may be adopted for $25 with the adoption of a full-fee animal.

            For more information on adoption qualifications and schedule of gentling demonstrations and adoption viewing times, see the Idaho Wild Horse and Burro Adoption ad in this issue, visit wildhorseandburro.blm.gov, or www.blm.gov/ut and click on “What We Do,” or call 208-677-6694 or 801-977-4359.
