BLM’s Wheatland Off-Range Corral holding final wild horse and burro adoption of 2021


CASPER, Wyo. — The Bureau of Land Management’s Wheatland Off-Range Corral will be holding its final wild horse and burro adoption event of the year starting at 8 a.m. Friday, November 5.

The BLM said in a press release that 25-35 untrained wild horses and burros will be up for adoption at the event. The animals will be adopted on a first-come, first-served basis. The event will end at 3 p.m.

“Wild horses available for adoption have been removed from overpopulated herds roaming Western rangelands,” the BLM said. “As part of our efforts to find every horse and burro a good home, the BLM offers up to $1,000 to adopt an untrained animal.”

Following the adoption event, the Wheatland Off-Range Corral will be closed to public events for the winter.

“The closure is in support of current wild horse gather operations occurring in southwestern Wyoming,” the BLM said. “Dates for 2022 adoption events will be published once the adoption schedule is finalized.”

The Wheatland Off-Range Corral is located at 1005 North Wheatland Highway about ten miles north of Wheatland.
