The United States Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is holding an adoption event of wild horses and burros in Henderson, Texas and it is just around the corner on November 8 and November 9. Hopefully this reminder notice on November 1 will spark the interest of all who can attend to have a closer look at America’s iconic animals – horses and burros – will do so.
On November 8 and 9, interested horse owners and others who are interested in BLM's wild horses and burros and have considered adopting a deserving, needy wild horse can go to Henderson, Texas and observe, ask questions, and even adopt a wild horse and/or a burro. There is a limit on the number of BLM animals that may be adopted.
The weekend features several events. In particular, a horseshow is planned exclusively for ex-wild horses and burros starting at 9:00 a.m. on November 9. To be eligible to participate, the now-trained horse had to have been a wild animal that has been adopted.
Also expected are gentling demonstrations. Travis Dittmer of Fort Worth will demonstrate his training methods using the wild horses that are up for adoption. How fortunate to adopt one of these, right?
